029: Final Fantasy I – VI Retrospective


Lots of talk of RPG’s this episode!  Matt and Chris start off talking about the upcoming Tales of Graces, the announcement of Xenoblade Chronicles, and the new layout on YouTube.  We then move into the main topic where we talk about the first six Final Fantasy videogames, the history behind them, our experiences playing them, what we critically think of them, and how we think they hold up now.  We also give our thoughts on Mario Kart 7 for the 3DS and Fortune Street for the Nintendo Wii.  We then move into the Q&A where we talk about Square-Enix sequels we would like to see, the impact of this podcast and YouTube on our social ability, our thoughts on fanservice, upcoming movies, and Chris getting into a car accident.

  1. Q&A-
    How should one go about approaching and getting to know a girl in high school? I know you guys are probably just gonna be like “just do it it’s only high school” but how do you approach a girl at school that you dont know without being extremely awkward?! I’m at a loss here because during school everybody has work to do and constantly moving around in between classes and after school hours people are on their way home. How do you get around this barrier?

    minor correction, in FF2 you only ever had 4 characters not a fifth slot for temporary characters. Also you guys mispronounced Cecil and Firion. whether or not some of the things you said that were wrong were what you actually thought or just a joke, it was pretty funny, like calling dark knight Cecil a trash can.

    and FF4 on the DS made me teary eyed as well when I started realizing that most of the characters were dying, I even cried a little when Yang “died”.

    And all the characters in Dissidia are in the sequel.

    Man after hearing Matt explained FF6 i really want to play it now, I haven’t played it yet, but I’ve been really wanting to for a while now.

    I like how you answered my question Chris, using stats, nice touch. I have had to fight with myself, like you said, to do or say a certain thing, but it is indeed hard to override my initial way of thinking. really appreciate the advice from both of you thanks. Wow my question sure did make the episode longer.

    Also agree with you Chris on fanservice, it might not fit sometimes, but it doesn’t ruin the show, plus its nice to look at most of the time ^-^
