Remember The Game? #137 - Final Fantasy VIII
It's finally time to sit down and talk about Final Fantasy VIII. Unquestionably, the most divisive game in the history of this stupid podcast. A vocal majority of you hate this game, and an even more vocal minority defend it like their lives depend on it. I had never played it, but then it won our Patreon poll, and I put a good 40 hours into seeing what all the hubbub is about.   And I have a LOT to say.    My pal Andre is one of those Final Fantasy VIII defenders, and he gave me a call last week to chat about Squall and friends. And chat we did. The 'game talk' portion of this week's show clocked in around ninety minutes, and we went over all the stuff we liked, and all the stuff we hated about this game. And trust me, there's plenty of both.   And of course, before we talk Final Fantasy, it's the Remember The Game Infamous Intro!    This week, I get into stuff like whether someone should buy a Switch now, or wait for a potential 'Pro' iteration. I pick my four character dream team of Final Fantasy characters, and decide which Final Fantasy villain they'll go up against. Why the hell has Nintendo not brought back the NES Remix series?? And more!   Plus, we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One'. This time, it's the PSOne Final Fantasy' edition, featuring Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII, and Final Fantasy IX!   If you want to skip to something specific, here's where to go:   0:00 - Intro    2:15 - Initial self-indulgent rambling & 'Expansion Pass #47: Best/Worst Controllers' Clip   9:05 - 'Blowing In The Cartridge' (Listener comments & questions)   25:10 - 'Play One. Remake One. Erase One.'   36:10 - What have I been playing?   38:10 - Listener's 'Final Fantasy VIII' Memories   42:05 + Final Fantasy Talk!   Enjoy the podcast!
