Properly, the primary a part of our retrospective, anyway.
We have been figuring out manner by the historical past of Ultimate Fantasy game-by-game for the previous three years now, usually with the assistance of Kotaku’s Chris Kohler and USgamer EIC Kat Bailey, and our journey continues this week with the one most of you’ve got in all probability been ready for: Ultimate Fantasy VII. Or a minimum of a part of Ultimate Fantasy VII, anyway. There was a lot to say about this sport and its place in online game historical past that we weren’t in a position to deal with all of it in a single podcast—in reality, we mainly simply obtained by the Midgar section of the sport right here. Yow.
Don’t fret, although—regardless of my saying that we would not cowl the remainder of the sport for a number of months, the second a part of this dialog will arrive in two weeks! (Or subsequent Monday, if you happen to’re a Patreon subscriber.)
Actually, with a complete dialog working greater than three and a half hours throughout these two episodes, there’s actually not far more for I can add right here. So I’ll let our podcastin’ phrases communicate for themselves….
Oh, however do not miss our earlier Ultimate Fantasy and associated discussions!
