Happy Holidays!I want to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2014!

When I look back at the year 2013 it was the year that Square Enix released a lot of remakes. Final Fantasy IV, The After Years and Final Fantasy V for mobile devices and also new games like Final Fantasy All The Bravest (don't look at that game, it's crap). Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD ReMIX was released and Final Fantasy VIII got a digital re-release. In August Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn was worldwide launched (after the original version flopped), which had a bad start with servers that couldn't handle the amount of players.

It was also the year that Final Fantasy XV (first known as Final Fantasy Versus XIII) and Kingdom Hearts III where finally announced for the next generation consoles. Also, as expected, Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMIX was recently announced.

What will 2014 bring us? Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will be up first. The third game in the Lightning-saga will hit stores in February. The HD version of Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 will be released in March (Japan will get them in 2 days). Other games that will be released are Drakengard 3 and Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMIX.

Finally, after almost 3½ years having the same layout, Hell and Heaven Net has got a brand new one! Grey is the color I've choosen for version 13 *hides*, which meets with todays standards, since the old one was lacking that. With the new layout, I don't support old browser versions anymore and please use Firefox or Chrome to view the site at best.

With this change Hell and Heaven Net now also covers the retro Final Fantasy games and of course the latest release Final Fantasy XIII-2. All the new covered games have their introduction page up, but not have content yet. All the other covered games still uses the old layout, because the system has also been changed to a content management system (Drupal for those who want to know). All those covered games have to be converted to the new system to have the new layout. This will be done game by game.

A couple of sections (like features and reviews) are currently not available, but will be in the future. Some pages were removed, due to not up-to-date content. There could still be some bugs in the system.

You might also have noticed the Twitter and Facebook blocks at the bottom of the page. You can follow HHN on Twitter (@hhncom) and like us on Facebook.

Please leave a comment and let me know what your thoughts are with the brand new layout.

I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

2011 was the year that Final Fantasy XIII-2 was announced, the sequel to the somewhat dissapointing Final Fantasy XIII and pushing back Final Fantasy Versus XIII even further. Also more Final Fantasy spinoffs were announced.

Will 2012 restore the Final Fantasy community? I think not after the damage Square Enix has already done.

Hell and Heaven Net

Today marks the tenth anniversary of Hell and Heaven Net! On 13 July 2011 the website was founded after I renamed my personal website. Why did I name it Hell and Heaven Net? Because in Final Fantasy VIII there are two islands: Island Closest to Hell and Island Closest to Heaven. And I needed an unique name, not a name like Final Fantasy Heaven. The site was first started as a Final Fantasy & Dragon Ball Z fansite, but some months later I decided that to drop Dragon Ball Z coverage.

In 2001 the web was different, there were a lot of Final Fantasy fansites in back then. In the years HHN affiliated with a lot of fansites, but most of the webmasters lost their interest in the websites and they died. Other were acquired by webmasters who didn't care much about it.

The Final Fantasy series also had rough times, especially after the first movie The Spirits Within, which caused Square to almost go bankrupt. A few years after the merge with Enix I experienced that the fanbase wasn't as big as before the merge.

In the 10 years the layout of Hell and Heaven Net has changed 11 times. Most of the layouts were gray themed, but there also were a lot of blue ones, like the current one, which is online for more than 2½ years now. I have a new layout in the works, but I'm currently in the last months of my graduation fase so my free time is limited.

I want to thank all visitors in the last 10 years and the (ex) staff members who supported me in the years. And of course Square Enix for creating the Final Fantasy series. Without them, this website wouldn't exist.

Hell and Heaven Net

Square Enix Forums is the latest Square Enix comminity where you can discuss about games from Square Enix like the Final Fantasy series, Kingdom Hearts series, Star Ocean series and all other games. Also you can create social groups,

Do you remember the card game from Final Fantasy VIII: Triple Triad? Well, you can play the game against others (and against a computer) very soon on Square Enix Forums. Also the Arcade will be available for people who like to play flash games.

So, please be a part of this growing community, because we can't last without you.

Square Enix Forums

Hell and Heaven Net

After a lot of years having a community forum I decided to close it, since there was no activity anymore. It has been some great years with up- and downsides. Thanks goes to all the forum staff who supported me and all the members who stayed active from time to time.

I managed to convert all news items to Drupal, which will be used for posting news from now on and you can all leave your comments without registiring. There's still some tweaking to be done to the layout which I'll do in the upcoming days. I don't think that I'll convert all content to Drupal, since it's too much work and I don't have a lot of time at the moment (due to college mostly).

The website StarOcean4.com will be closing soon and all content will be transfered to Hell and Heaven Net, since there isn't much news about the game anymore (only the PS3 version that is coming in February).

Hell and Heaven Net

I've finally finished a new feature to Hell and Heaven Net called the History of Final Fantasy. If you're interested in how the Final Fantasy series began back in 1987 or why the game was called Final Fantasy, you should go and check it out.

The next I want to change is the main page. Instead of only displaying the news items, I also want to display some forum information and the poll will be back.

Hell and Heaven Net

After a long time of adjusting a lot of pages the website finally has a brand new layout! Version 12 is a new easy layout in blue which replaces the old dark blue one which was old and didn't meet today's requirements. With the new layout a lot of links have been changed, so it might happen that some links have become broken, pages not displaying alright and images that are not displaying. I'll fix them in the next few days. I hope you all like the new layout.

Also some games with lack of content have been dropped. They might come back when more content is written for the game. The affiliates list have also been cleaned of websites that have died or aren't updated anymore. New affiliates are welcome.

Hell and Heaven Net

You might be wondering why the website isn't updated with new content lately. While, I've been rather busy with school and other websites that I have to maintain.

But I'm not letting Hell and Heaven Net die! To replace the really old layout, I'm currently working on a new one that is almost done and needs to be coded still. Only that takes quite some time, since everything needs to be changed. The new layout will be a simple one, no high quality designing, since I'm not experienced enough with it. The community forums will be getting a new layout soon too that's based on the new layout.

I'm expecting that the new layout will be launched next weekend.

Hell and Heaven Net

Hell and Heaven Net Topsites is back online! Since I moved hosts and my current one doesn't have any problems with the script I've decided to put it back online! It still has the same style it used to have before it was taken offline. Since I prefer this topsites above the one at iTopsites, that one will be taken offline shortly and all members will be getting an email about it.

I hope Hell and Heaven Net Topsites will become one of the biggest Final Fantasy & Square Enix like it used to be and that my host doesn't begin to complain about it.

If you have a website that is related to Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Dragon Quest, Grandia, Star Ocean or/and any other game from Square Enix, you're free to join.
