Half-Glass Gaming [Episode 44] : Can’t Get Taste like That in the Big House

Half Glass Gaming 44

It’s been a long time coming, folks, but our Final Fantasy episode is finally here.

Before we get into all that business, though, we discuss Prison Ted’s Super Subs and Mandi’s obsession with nature documentaries. She’s got a fistful of factoids straight out of the animal kingdom, and she’s dropping some mad science about panda poop and narwhal horns.

After the break, we dive into the history of the original Final Fantasy game for the Famicom, and we explain how the numbering system for later games in the series got so confusing in the United States. We also dissect Final Fantasy VII to try to figure out how it changed the game, and we follow the series through the decline of Squaresoft and the emergence of Square Enix.

Did you expect us to leave out the MMO entries? Because we’re hitting those too, before following the transformation of Final Fantasy Versus XIII to Final Fantasy XV.

We’ve got an episode jam-packed with Final Fantasy goodness. You don’t want to miss this one, folks.
