All I want for Christmas is my two front speakers

I’m not an audiophile or anything remotely close to it. I do, however, know a good sounding pair of speakers when I hear them.  Just like you, I have been listening to music for ages and it’s really a part of my life. A day without music is like a day without chocolate. Well, you get the idea.

With Christmas approaching, I went out and about to discover a pair of speakers that I could use for my computer as well as for jamming out when I wanted to.

There is a lot riding on the future success of Final Fantasy 15. Not in the standpoint of the studio’s sake (Square Enix) but for the title’s sake.  Square Enix is not in any dire financial straits at this point and if their game bombs – it’s only going to be a glancing blow.
