Final Fantasy II - The Beaver Whisperer

July 16, 2018

How do you top a hit video game? Well, Final Fantasy II is certainly...an attempt! Mercifully, this is a one-episode take on the controversial follow up. It’s also the final appearance of sounding-board, Jake, who just wanted to play Yu-Gi-Oh on his cellphone, and we certainly didn’t blame him. Does Final Fantasy II deserve its criticism (yes) or is there a worthwhile narrative hidden behind its maligned gameplay (also yes!)

For skippers: story starts at 18:53

Final Fantasy I - Part 2: Fantasia Brooms

July 8, 2018

The explosive, shard-filled conclusion to Final Fantasy I! With the elements subjugated by Four Fiends, the Warriors of Light step forward to restore balance to an 8-bit world. In their quest they will come across collapsible boats, scheming knights, ambiguous mermaids, and the lost Lana Del-Race. And...can Tom survive the FINAL element shot? It all spirals into Chaos!

Final Fantasy I - Part 1: An Intellectual Baby

July 8, 2018

Join us on our first episode, as we delve into the history of the humble, Tokyo power company that would go on to create one of the world’s best selling--and sequel-spanning--video games of all time! We also discuss the production of the O.G. Final Fantasy, and set the stage for a tale of silent protagonists, dark knights, and crystals galore. All the while, I force my co-host and guest to drink an increasingly aggressive series of shots. Good times all around!
