Obviously, I will go into more details about both of these games in the next podcast. I just wanted to let you guys know that I picked up Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions the other day. So far, I’m enjoying it immensely. The job system is very similar to Final Fantasy V’s, which is a very good thing.Now, for clarification’s sake, Tactics has nothing to do with my Final Fantasy quest to beat every game in the series. That quest only entails the main entries (minus XI, because I have a life. Not a very busy one, but still). So I’m not making any promises that I’m going to beat this one. Still, if I keep enjoying it as much as I currently am, I think I just may.
Final Fantasy VIII has yet to really click with me. Part of the problem may be that I haven’t had a chance to really sit down and play a good 3+ hour session with it. There are definitely some impressive things going on, but the pace thus far has been pretty slow. But I’m confident it will pick up soon.
Anyways, we should be recording the podcast later today, and then it should go up on Saturday. I know you’re all waiting anxiously.
