Episode 30 – Final Fantasy V



SALSAAAA!!!  It’s in everyone’s top-5 favorite dips for tortilla chips, and it’s the very poorly-translated name of one of the lead characters in this episode’s game, FINAL FANTASY V!  We continue our grand tour of the Finals Fantasy, and this is the very last one that will come WITHOUT a rose segment… VI and onward, and Hosts Chris and Katie have actually played them before… what a novel concept!

 

This one was a struggle… not to beat (though neither did), but rather, to figure out how to pronounce all the names.  Galuf, really?  And we were one step away from naming the main hero Guacamole, after some of the other poor translations.  Listen in and see why!

 

Spoiler alert, this was a great time for everyone, it had more depth than any of the prior games, the music… well, the music existed, and overall, it was a lot of fun!

 

Also, check out the PIXEL REMASTER of the game, which came out just last week!  They’re really well-done, and the better it does, the more remakes they’ll put out, and we like them!

 

QUESOOOOOO…


Random Non-Rose 1: Jak 3 (Katie Edition)



What’s this? An episode of Games We Grew Up With… with NO rose-tinted glasses segment? With only HALF of the hosting crew?

 

Yes, my dear friends, your wishes have been granted! It’s Host Katie, accompanied by Host Katie, with a dash of Host Katie for good measure, talking about Jak, Jak, and Jak again… because it’s JAK 3 TIME!

 

With this new format, it’s more of a “quick-hit review” of a game, just chatting about it… no rose section, less about the publisher, and just “Hey, I played this game recently, here’s my thoughts!”, and we decided to break it in with the end of the core Jak trilogy.

 

So pour yourself a tall glass of your favorite beverage of choice, dim the lights, sit back, relax, and enjoy listening about FLUT FLUTS and PRECURSORS and BETRAYAL and AWKWARD LOVE TRIANGLES and… of course… the star of the trilogy, the man himself, the myth, the legend… DAXTER!
