Final Fantasy VII Epilogue + VIII Prologue
Josh Wigler (@roundhoward
) and Brooklyn Zed (@hardrockhope
) are finished with “Final Fantasy VII,” but they are far from finished with the “Final Fantasy” series.
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 a 10-part deep-dive into all things FF7, Josh and Zed now embark on “Final Fantasy VIII.” In FF8, the player assumes the role of brooding bad boy Squall Lionhart 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’s the next natural step for Josh and Zed’s tour through the series. So draw some magic, don’t forget to junction a Guardian Force, and get ready for a ride.
In this week’s podcast, Josh and Zed start with one last look back at FF7, as Zed is now well and truly finished with the game. Then, Josh makes Zed take a test about FF8 as a means of learning more about what’s ahead.
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.
