#025 – The gang talk about Final Fantasy XV

Edited screen capture from Final Fantasy XV - female character Lunafreya holding a Cup Noodle.

This week, we finally open up about our experiences with Final Fantasy XV. It’s a fairly free-flowing episode, and the discussion ranges from praise for the PlayStation’s early platformers, to speculation on the Final Fantasy VII Remake.

Notes for this Podcast

We’re back again, to dazzle and delight. Put us in your earholes for the next hour or so.

We discuss a bunch of stuff relating to Final Fantasy XV which could easily spoil the main story from around 33:35 to 45:52. Please skip ahead if you intend to complete the game, or care about plot spoilers.

We recorded this on location, so apologies for potato quality.

Final Fantasy XV

It happened. We bottled this up for a while, but naturally segue into our thoughts on Final Fantasy XV. Whilst it’s mostly damning, it’s fairly light hearted – as by this point, we’ve had time to recover.

There are spoilers though, so consider skipping this section (33:35 – 45:52) if you’d rather find out about the game yourself.

Jalopy / Noah Caldwell-Gervais

I allude to this video in the podcast. Noah Caldwell-Gervais is a critic who produces in-depth gaming reviews, whilst travelling around in his VW Bus.

Later in the video, he looks at Jalopy, comparing the game to his own experiences on the road.
