    S7E26 - What Would Be Right?

    We head to the Iifa Tree and explore its roots. This place must be the source of the mist. Is this a tree of life? Or a tree of death? It’s a giant harp.

    It’s the start of day 6. We make breakfast, then try to find the missing mail in the Black Mage Village, before eventually arriving at Madain Sari. We also try Gros Michel bananas.

Must-listen podcast for Final Fantasy fans. Too much bananas.

NOCKAT is a great podcast I have recommended to other FF fans. The way Ryan and Jeff’s personalities and perspectives bounce off each other, plus the layers of present and post-play analysis make this podcast way more entertaining than it has any right to be. Add on the nostalgia of reliving favorite games from my youth, and it’s made it onto my weekly must-listen podcasts list.

My only critique: The banana content ain’t it guys. The initial saga was mildly amusing, but several minutes of banana commentary every episode across multiple seasons is not an ingredient you want to add to the regular recipe here. The bit got so overdone and annoying a long time ago and I’ve started going 2x speed or skipping through it. Enough with the bananas please, holy moly, let it go.

My Favorite VG Podcast

Honestly look forward to hearing this podcast. Used to binge this show and have been waiting for them to play FFIX.

A Good Ol' Time

I wasn't sure if I'd be able to follow this, since I've only played FF7 and some of FF8 in my youth. I was happy to discover that I was able to keep up with it and be entertained. Jeff and Ryan are hilarious and have a really endearing friendship. Their essential third host is Jeff's dog, Halley, who is a good girl. They go through their ups and downs on their journey through the games. They do a great job at describing the visuals to make it accessible for an audio format. I particularly like the way they have edited it, with commentary from when they play the game as well as some retrospective thoughts as they edit the season. I've been listening to them while I work, and it's been a blast. Give it a listen if you enjoy videogames, friendship, and dogs!
