Final Fantasy 8 Wrap-Up + Final Fantasy 7 Remake Preview

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Brooklyn Zed (@hardrockhope) are closing out their run on Final Fantasy 8, and setting the stage for their return to Midgar.

Post Show Recaps presents “Final Fantasy,” a very creatively named podcast series in which Josh introduces his friend Zed to the best video game series of all time. Best, of course, is a relative term …

Following their deep-dive into all things FF7, Josh and Zed embarked on “Final Fantasy 8.” In FF8, the player assumes the role of brooding bad boy Squall Leonhart and his fellow members of SeeD: students at the local Garden by day, globe-trotting soldiers by … also day. It’s one of the more controversial installments in “Final Fantasy,” but as the successor to FF7, it was the next natural step for Josh and Zed’s tour through the series.

In this week’s podcast, Josh and Zed finish their coverage of FF8 and look ahead toward the next project on the horizon: FF7 Remake, which Zed will be playing for the first time, with Josh jumping back into it with the release of FF7 Remake Intergrade. Additionally, Josh and Zed are joined by FF8 superfan Aidan to defend his favorite game.

If you want to play along while you listen to the podcast journey, “Final Fantasy VIII” is available on various platforms: Nintendo Switch, PS4, Steam and even the original PSX version, assuming you, like Zed, still have an old-school system. FF7 Remake, meanwhile, is a PlayStation exclusive.
