Episode Notes

Part 2 of our 16-ish-month-long series is here! There’s no shortage of people who claim II is The Worst One so the Dropouts are here to tell you why they’re wrong. Victor is joined by special guest Christa Lee to discuss Dragoons, Dark Knights, Despots, Drive-Ins, and Dives.

So let’s give it some! Also let’s go on tangents about FFXI and early Japanese PC adventure games!
