Star Ocean 2: The Second Story R Review w/ Jada Griffen

This episode is all about the new remake of Star Ocean 2 with special guest Jada Griffen!

Episode Notes

Did you know Tri-Ace was founded when the members of Wolf Team developing Tales of Phantasia grew tired of Namco’s involvement and split off to create their own studio in the middle of development? And then in 2019 the mobile game Star Ocean: Anamnesis featured a crossover event with Tales, bridging the two series after nearly a quarter-century. Anyway this episode is all about the new remake of Star Ocean 2 with special guest Jada Griffen! George Yang is also supposed to be here but the best laid plans of mice and men etc.
Luckily it’s still a great discussion about Star Ocean’s place in the genre and beyond!

Also in this Episode:
– Thirsty Suitors
– World of Warcraft is prepping for the next 20 years
– USGamer was a really good website!

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?
