Résultat de recherche d'images pour "lulu final fantasy"

Lulu is a playable character in Final Fantasy X who also appears in Final Fantasy X-2 as a non-player character. She is one of Yuna‘s guardians. Since Lulu grew up with Yuna in Besaid, she and Wakkathink of Yuna as a younger sister. Lulu’s stoic and self-possessed nature makes her seem insensitive at times, but conceals a gentleness underneath.

She specializes in the art of black magic, using various dolls to help cast powerful spells. She is instrumental in supporting Tidus to adjust to the world of Spira, although she does not initially believe his claim of hailing from Zanarkand.

Final Fantasy X

Final Fantasy X (ファイナルファンタジーX Fainaru Fantajī Ten) is a role-playing video game developed and published by Square as the tenth entry in the Final Fantasy series. Originally released in 2001 for Sony’s PlayStation 2, the game was re-released as Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in 2013, for PlayStation 4 in 2015 and for Microsoft Windows in 2016. The game marks the Final Fantasy series transition from entirely pre-rendered backdrops to fully three-dimensional areas, and is also the first in the series to feature voice actingFinal Fantasy X replaces the Active Time Battle (ATB) system with the “Conditional Turn-Based Battle” (CTB) system, and uses a new leveling system called the “Sphere Grid”.

Set in the fantasy world of Spira, the game’s story revolves around a group of adventurers and their quest to defeat a rampaging monster known as Sin. The player character is Tidus, a star athlete in the fictional sport of blitzball, who finds himself in the world Spira after his home city of Zanarkand is destroyed by Sin. Shortly after arriving to Spira, Tidus joins the summoner Yuna on her pilgrimage to destroy Sin.

Development of Final Fantasy X began in 1999, with a budget of more than US$32.3 million (US$46.4 million in 2016 dollars) and a team of more than 100 people. The game was the first in the main series not entirely scored by Nobuo Uematsu; Masashi Hamauzu and Junya Nakano were signed as Uematsu’s fellow composers. Final Fantasy X was both a critical and commercial success, selling over 6.6 million units worldwide. It is widely considered to be one of the greatest video games of all time. On March 3, 2003, it was followed by Final Fantasy X-2, making it the first Final Fantasy game to have a direct game sequel. Square Enixannounced in 2013 that the Final Fantasy X series has sold over 14 million copies worldwide.[1]

Wonder Woman is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.[2] The character is a founding member of the Justice Leaguegoddess, and Ambassador-at-Large of the Amazonian people. The character first appeared in All Star Comics #8 in October 1941 and first cover-dated on Sensation Comics #1, January 1942. In her homeland, the island nation of Themyscira, her official title is Princess Diana of Themyscira, Daughter of Hippolyta. When blending into the society outside of her homeland, she adopts her civilian identity Diana Prince. The character is also referred to by such epithets as the “Amazing Amazon”, the “Spirit of Truth”, “Themyscira’s Champion”, the “God-killer”, and the “Goddess of Love and War”.

Wonder Woman was created by the American psychologist and writer William Moulton Marston (pen name: Charles Moulton),[2] and artist Harry G. PeterOlive Byrne, Marston’s lover, and his wife, Elizabeth,[3] are credited as being his inspiration for the character’s appearance.[2][4][5][6][7] Marston drew a great deal of inspiration from early feminists, and especially from birth control pioneer Margaret Sanger; in particular, her piece “Woman and the New Race”. The character first appeared in All Star Comics #8 in October 1941 and first cover-dated on Sensation Comics #1, January 1942. The Wonder Woman title has been published by DC Comics almost continuously except for a brief hiatus in 1986.[8]

Wonder Woman’s origin story relates that she was sculpted from clay by her mother Queen Hippolyta and given life by Aphrodite, along with superhuman powers as gifts by the Greek gods. However, in recent years artists updated her profile: she has been depicted as the daughter of Zeus, and jointly raised by her mother Hippolyta and her aunts Antiope and Menalippe. In the 1980s artist George Perez gave her a muscular look and emphasized her Amazonian heritage. In 2010 artist Jim Lee redesigned Diana’s costume to include pants, though this design was later abandoned. She inherits Ares’s divine abilities, becoming the personified “God of War”.[9][10]

Wonder Woman’s Amazonian training helped to develop a wide range of extraordinary skills in tactics, hunting, and combat. She possesses an arsenal of advanced technology, including the Lasso of Truth, a pair of indestructible bracelets, a tiara which serves as a projectile, and, in older stories, a range of devices based on Amazon technology.

Wonder Woman’s character was created during World War II; the character in the story was initially depicted fighting Axis military forces as well as an assortment of colorful supervillains, although over time her stories came to place greater emphasis on characters, deities, and monsters from Greek mythology. Many stories depicted Wonder Woman rescuing herself from bondage, which defeated the “damsels in distress” trope that was common in comics during the 1940s.[11] In the decades since her debut, Wonder Woman has gained a cast of enemies bent on eliminating the Amazon, including classic villains such as AresCheetahDoctor PoisonCirceDoctor Psycho, and Giganta, along with more recent adversaries such as Veronica Caleand the First Born. Wonder Woman has also regularly appeared in comic books featuring the superhero teams Justice Society (from 1941) and Justice League(from 1960).[12]

Notable depictions of the character in other media include Gloria Steinem placing the character on the cover of the second edition of Ms. magazine in 1971; the 1975–1979 Wonder Woman TV series starring Lynda Carter; as well as animated series such as the Super Friends and Justice League. Since Carter’s television series, studios struggled to introduce a new live-action Wonder Woman to audiences, although the character continued to feature in a variety of toys and merchandise, as well as animated adaptations of DC properties, including a direct-to-DVD animated feature starring Keri Russell. Attempts to return Wonder Woman to television have included a television pilot for NBC in 2011, closely followed by another stalled production for The CW.[13][14] Gal Gadotportrays Wonder Woman in the DC Extended Universe, starting with the 2016 film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, marking the character’s first appearance in a feature film in its 75-year history.[15] Gadot also starred in the character’s first solo live-action film Wonder Woman, which was released on June 2, 2017.[16][17]

On October 21, 2016, the United Nations sparked controversy by naming Wonder Woman a “UN Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls” in a ceremony attended by Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information Cristina Gallach and by actors Lynda Carter and Gal Gadot.[18][19] Two months later, she was dropped from her role as a UN Ambassador following a petition.[20]

#TombRaider #LaraCroft by the gorgeous @shermie_cos

Lara Croft is a fictional character and the main protagonist of the Square Enix (previously Eidos Interactive) video game franchise Tomb Raider. She is presented as a highly intelligent, athletic, and beautiful English archaeologist-adventurer who ventures into ancient, hazardous tombs and ruins around the world. Created by a team at UK developer Core Design that included Toby Gard, the character first appeared in the 1996 video game Tomb Raider. She has also appeared in video game sequels, printed adaptations, a series of animated short films, feature films (portrayed by Angelina Jolie, later by Alicia Vikander), and merchandise related to the series. Official promotion of the character includes a brand of apparel and accessories, action figures, and model portrayals. Croft has also been licensed for third-party promotion, including television and print advertisements, music-related appearances, and as a spokesmodel. As of June 2016, Lara Croft has been featured on over 1,100 magazine covers surpassing any supermodel.[2]

Core Design handled initial development of the character and the series. Inspired by Neneh Cherry and comic book character Tank Girl, Gard designed Lara Croft to counter stereotypical female characters. The company modified the character for subsequent titles, which included graphical improvements and gameplay additions. American developer Crystal Dynamics took over the series after the 2003 sequel Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness was received poorly. The new developer rebooted the character along with the video game series. The company altered her physical proportions, and gave her additional ways of interacting with game environments. Croft has been voiced by six actresses in the video game series: Shelley Blond (1996), Judith Gibbins (1997–98), Jonell Elliott (1999–2003), Keeley Hawes (2006–14), Camilla Luddington (2013–present) and Abigail Stahlschmidt (2015).

Critics consider Lara Croft a significant game character in popular culture. She holds six Guinness World Records, has a strong fan following, and is among the first video game characters to be successfully adapted to film.[3] Lara Croft is also considered a sex symbol, one of the earliest in the industry to achieve widespread attention. The character’s influence in the industry has been a point of contention among critics; viewpoints range from a positive agent of change in video games to a negative role model for young girls.

Gamescom

It is organised by the BIU (Bundesverband Interaktive Unterhaltungssoftware, English: Federal Association of Interactive Entertainment Software).[2] It is used by many video game developers to show off their upcoming games and game-related hardware.[3][4][5][6]

[Cosplay&More] – The most incredible Cindy cosplay ever from Final Fantasy XV

Cindy was designed by designers Roberto Ferrari and Yusaku Nakaaki, among others.[39][35] A character crucial to the story and gameplay, Cindy was first introduced in the Episode Duscae demo. Tabata described her as “the kind of girl who is very good at dealing with men”.[96] In response to negative comments about her appearance in player feedback for Episode Duscae, Nakaaki stated she had not been deliberately sexualized, but that the team had perhaps put too much “heart and soul” into her design. They chose to make adjustments so players would be more comfortable with her.[39] Originally, Cindy’s breasts jiggled so much that Tabata had to ask the team to tone it down.
