Rhythm Encounter 82 – Final Fantasy XIII Trilogy

Rhythm Encounter 082 Final Fantasy XIII Trilogy

Final Fantasy XIII isn’t the only divisive entry in Square Enix’s long-running series, but it sure evokes some passionate discussion amongst RPG fans. Love it, hate it, or in between it, the three games that follow Lightning and company’s saga all have one thing that few people can refute: absolutely killer soundtracks thanks to people like Masashi Hamauzu, Naoshi Mizuta, Mitsuto Suzuki, and more. Join us as we discuss the music of the Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2, and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII and generally restrain ourselves discussing the games themselves!

Featuring: Mike Salbato, Wes Iliff, Audra Bowling, Peter Triezenberg; Edited by Jono Logan

These are great picks! My favorite song from FFXIII is No Way to Live. It's just so fast paced and keeps you moving forward. It only plays in a short part of the game, but it stuck with me these past 12 years lol. I never got around to playing the 2 sequels. Maybe someday (hahaha says my backlog)

That's a good choice too! There's no shortage of them on these soundtracks, so I enjoy hearing other peoples' favorites. :)
