IGN's "History of Final Fantasy VII"
Gaming megasite IGN recently posted a seven-page article titled IGN Presents: The History of Final Fantasy VII. Though there is much in the article that has been covered at length elsewhere (including the Citadel), and despite some obvious retconning when the original game is discussed, it's a decent overview of FFVII's history and that of the Compilation which would later follow.

Happy Birthday to Us, Site Update, and an Announcement
For over a year now, we've been honoring the 10th Anniversary of the original Final Fantasy VII with monthly site themes. With this month, the Citadel marks the end of this celebration with another anniversary—our own. This month's banner should be familiar to longtime visitors of the site: it's a remake (so to speak) that I put together based on Ambigore's original from 2001 (archived in the Museum). The Aeris sidebar is also based on an earlier design, one that had graced the site at least as far back as 2000. With this new theme, I'd like to officially retire the Advent Children-themed look from before and return the site's design to its roots—FFVII itself.
Now, for the site updates. Well over a hundred official screenshots have been added to Crisis Core Images & Media, while Crisis Core Characters has been updated for two cameo appearances. Elsewhere, Retroactive Continuity in the Compilation has seen a small addition to its Crisis Core section, two new fanart pieces by me are now available, and the Press Releases and Links sections have been updated with new additions.
Finally, I'd like to announce that this is my final post as Webmaster; I am stepping down from this role and taking over the News Editor position from Ex-SOLDIER (who has a lot on his plate already as Forums Administrator) while continuing to serve as the site's Host. With that said, I'm pleased to announce that the Citadel's new Webmaster is CloudANDTidus. He's been an invaluable part of the Citadel's staff and community for quite some time now, and I know that he'll do a fantastic job as the latest in a long line of Citadel Webmasters.
