When Atsushi Hashimoto was a kid, he loved role-playing games. He’d settle in front of the television for hours, controller in hand, lost in quests full of magical spells and powerful evils. He was particularly enamored with the works of Squaresoft, now known as Square Enix, the developer behind 16-bit classics like Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger. As he grew older, classic-style Japanese RPGs largely went out of fashion, replaced by a combination of big-budget action games and smaller mobile titles. But Hashimoto never forgot about the games that helped define his relationship with the medium. In 2014 he had the chance to bring them back as the director at Square Enix’s Tokyo RPG Factory studio.

My new phone. The Samsung S8 in orchid something.

There was that feeling that my Samsung S6 Edge Plus would be pried from my cold dead hand, then I saw the Samsung S8 Plus commercial. It only took one time seeing the Samsung S8 filming a shark to make my eyes wander.  Let me repeat that, a man in a shark cage recording a shark! It filled my little photographer heart with joy. Who wouldn’t want to be filming inside a shark cage? While being swept up in the excitement of a water proof phone, my husband pointed out that 1. When we were in the Bahamas I was nervous about snorkeling. Sharks would make things a lot scarier. 2. It was a shark, they bite. 3. Sharks, bite.
