Yet Another Final Fantasy Podcast This podcast details a journey of a Final Fantasy fan who has beaten only 1 of the FF games. We go through the games game-by-game chapter-by-chapter section-by-section. We accompany the heroes, deconstruct their stories, compare the different versions of the games, and marvel at the awe that these games inspire.

Final Fantasy V: Moogles
#13
06/21/2021

Time to meet Moogles in FFV! Sorry about the lesser-quality audio. I'd like to blame Audacity but really, I gotta pay more attention to which mic it picks when it records.

Final Fantasy V: Shifting Sands
#9
05/24/2021

Are we still playing Final Fantasy V or did Bartz's, Lenna's, Farris's, and Krille's eyes turn pure blue and we called for the mighty Shai-Hulud to take us across the open desert? But the party disgraced the sandworm and spilled its blood across a current of sand.

Final Fantasy V: The Ocean
#8
05/17/2021

How deep is your love?

Maybe, maybe not! Maybe it's time to take to the ocean and then see the Crescent Town which absolutely has nothing to do with the Crescent Lake in Final Fantasy I.

Final Fantasy V: Northern Mountain
#3
04/12/2021

You know what's really cool? When you do something in the game -- like walk through some poisonous grass -- and it's all fine. You lose some health but you're ok. BUT THEN, if it happens in a cutscene_, totally different thing. That can kill you right away.

Anyways, join the party on a journey up the Northen Mountain!

Final Fantasy IV: The Tower of Zot and Going Underground
#7
01/18/2021

First and foremost and before our adventure resumes, go checkout NGP Podcast: New Game Plus (ngppodcast.com). I did an episode with them about Final Fantasy IV Advance. It was a blast and well worth the listen! I also frequently hang out on their Discord so you can check me out on there, too! :)

But for today, join me on an adventure scaling the Tower of Zot and then -- we will venture deep underground into the mines of Mori-- I mean, just underground. 


Enjoy the episode!

Final Fantasy IV: Kingdom of Fabul
#3
12/21/2020

Wondering if I'm going to recount the fact that Rydia was a child and she was forced to perform the same spell that killed her parents? Wondering if I'm going to _keep_ recounting it? Wonder no more!

In this episode, I keep with my FF4 tradition of pointing out the horrendous things characters do and try to justify!

Final Fantasy IV: Antlion Cave

12/14/2020

It's time to start saving people and fighting monsters without _any_ moral ambiguity. :D
