Episode Notes

Howdy, friends! We’ve got a treat that’ll make y’all happier than a fox in a henhouse! This week, we have an in-depth discussion about Octopath Traveler II, an excellent choice from our $100 Patron and special guest, The Black Stones! The talk avoids major story spoilers, but there’s still tons to go over because Octopath Traveler II is a pretty special game. Its battle system is unique and highly engaging, its music is to die for, and its story is masterfully written and seamlessly interwoven into the game’s mechanics. Shucks, I guarantee this episode’ll have you eatin’ better than a sow in an apple field!

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Review

It’s the spoiler-free Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Spectacular! The panel has had plenty of time with Rebirth, or as I like to call it “Final Fantasy VII-3”. Does it improve upon Remake? Does it stand on it’s own? Do you need to play the lost mid-2000s Japanese feature phone game Before Crisis to fully grasp the importance of the character of Cissnei?

Put on your black hoodie with the thumb-holes cut out and start drawing “the cool S” on all your homework because we’re taking things back to 2003 AND 2013 at the same time.
