Squidgy uses this word at 59:03, when describing his revelation that there was a pause menu in a specific game
Lulu says this at 59:57, during the same discussion
At 19:18 I accidentally become Bugenhagen, and you can hear my transformation
It all starts with Lulu asking us where we stopped playing Final Fantasy.
My answer was that I’d given up with Final Fantasy XI, mainly because I felt like there wasn’t enough content to justify the monthly subscription price. Which was originally one of the issues with Final Fantasy XIV, until A Realm Reborn was release that is.
We talk about a particular boss challenge in XI which took a team of 6 people over 24 hours of real-time play, in order to beat it.
Squidgy, however, says that he hasn’t stopped playing them but he tends not to like to play MMORPGs or games which are particularly over hyped. He also prefers what he calls the “line dancing” type of RPGs
line dancing meaning that the party stand in a single line when fighting
Lulu then talks us through what was great about the protagonists in Final Fantasy XV, and why she really loved it
even though the main story felt a little short
Squidgy then asks three extremely important questions about Final Fantasy XV
Are Biggs and Wedge in it?
How do you feel about Noctis being a downloadable character for Tekken?
We know that you’re a Final Fantasy fan, but what other games do you play?
You’ll have to listen to the episode to find out which games Lulu loves to play
Death Stranding comes up again
you may remember that B brought it up last time
and it starts us down the path of discussing video game trailers - especially ones which only tease at what the game contains.
Lulu then gives us her unpopular gaming opinion. As a quick reminder of the ones we’ve had so far:
Mine was that you waste your money buying FIFA games. This is especially if you have the previous year’s game
Squidgys was related to parents who blame video games for all of the world’s ills. It was a hard hitting conversation, and one for greater minds than ours to figure out
Bs was that Hideo Kojima is over rated
Lulu’s was an extension of my Fifa problem, but for Call of Duty games. Which leads us into a discussion of what the next Call of Duty game could possibly bring to the table which PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds or Fortnite don’t have.
We talk about story driven games, and how RPGs are the best examples of story driven games. Squidgy then warns that story driven games can too easily hit you in the feels
