Ladd/Rad is the man. You should always use him. And I often use Alicia, too!

And tons of people because I'm a nerd.

You guys, this hard theory/formula talk needs to continue. I feed on it. FF Tactics may be one of the few games where I actively enjoy getting into the nittiest, grittiest nuts and bolts of the systems. Unf.

It's not impossible to work around Rapha's randomness. Yes, you can't approach a fight the same way as a character with a more guaranteed hit zone, but that doesn't mean she's idiotic. Non-traditional, but plenty of fun. I've made great use of her in WotL.

This one's a big old sad face. A sublime talent and personality lost.

I feel super strongly about not using plot characters in fft.  I can't stand how they ruin the balance of the game.  Generics for life!!

I've done playthroughs with and without. My issue is how cool they all look. EEEE

I think y'all are going to get a kick out of how we handle these fights. ;)

Unless you have Ramza oneshot Belias, I will remain unimpressed.

Though I do await your collective gripes with bated breath.

If they have gripes I will smite them

Sorry I thought you meant

Code:
stealing all the Genji gear from the assassins without ripping your hair out
This, at least, isn't even an option in WotL.

True, but it was such a vivid memory from the PS1 version that I'll never forget it. It was the only part of the game I ever had trouble with, since I rolled monk with blade grasp and two swords. The one-two punch killed literally everything.

We actually did April Fools a while back, and people seemed to really not like it. Which made me sad, because I thought we wrote some great stuff. :(

I got my only piece of hate mail ever for that feature. Mass Effect: Galaxies indeed.

We mentioned it last episode, but we're doing Final Fantasy Tactics!

WHAAAAAAAAAAT!?!??!

That is -literally- THE Greatest Video Game of all Time.

I can't help but notice that Meyerinck won't be involved in this podcast.  Do you guys need.... you know... an objective 4th chair or anything? *cough*  I'll be REALLY objective.  Really.

Haha, we actually already have four :) and it causes me physical pain that I won't be there. It's not as bad as the emotional pain of trying to edit and appear on six podcasts a month, but it's pretty bad. Still, clear heads prevail and I am prevented from telling you all why WotL is the best localization ever.

I really wish I had the time to be on the FFT show. So I could tell you all why War of the Lions is the best English localization ever.

If there's an FFIX show i WIll be on it.

Yeah, I don't know what site you're looking at but RPGFan is one of the few outlets I visit that DON'T go for the inflammatory or leading headlines.

You'll never see '10 THINGS FINAL FANTASY VII DID POORLY... NUMBER 6 BLEW MY BALLS OFF' at RPGFan. :)

It's alive! 2-3 should be up either tomorrow or the day after, and 3-1 by the end of the week, getting us caught up and helping YOU play along again.

Thanks a ton for everyone's patience on this-- I overestimated myself and my workload! I hope you still enjoy the episodes, late though they may be :)

Also Dice I wasn't kidding about the translations.
