Properly, the primary a part of our retrospective, anyway.
We have been figuring out approach via the historical past of Last Fantasy game-by-game for the previous three years now, typically with the assistance of Kotaku’s Chris Kohler and USgamer EIC Kat Bailey, and our journey continues this week with the one most of you could have most likely been ready for: Last Fantasy VII. Or not less than a part of Last Fantasy VII, anyway. There was a lot to say about this recreation and its place in online game historical past that we weren’t capable of deal with all of it in a single podcast—in truth, we mainly simply obtained via the Midgar part of the sport right here. Yow.
Don’t fret, although—regardless of my saying that we would not cowl the remainder of the sport for just a few months, the second a part of this dialog will arrive in two weeks! (Or subsequent Monday, should you’re a Patreon subscriber.)
Truthfully, with a complete dialog operating greater than three and a half hours throughout these two episodes, there’s actually not rather more for I can add right here. So I’ll let our podcastin’ phrases converse for themselves….
Oh, however do not miss our earlier Last Fantasy and associated discussions!
