Retro Encounter 340 – Final Fantasy XIII Part I

Retro Encounter 340 Final Fantasy XIII

Thunderbolts and Lightning / Very very frightening

Final Fantasy XIII, one of the most divisive games in the world’s most popular Japanese RPG series, is certainly old enough to be considered Retro, but its style and tone are anything but. Our panelists are one FF XIII veteran, one FF XIII neophyte, and one lapsed player; they’re unkind to the linear corridors and grating personalities of the first half of FF XIII, but understanding of the game’s troubled development history and appreciative of its stunning visuals, beautiful music, and frantic combat. 

Featuring: Michael Sollosi, Audra Bowling, Peter Triezenberg; Edited by Anthony Krolikowski

Opening and ending music by Miles Morkri
