Now that E3 is a thing of the past, I can talk about some games I’ve been playing recently. To my surprise, my Vita has been getting a lot of play lately. More than my 3DS in recent weeks! Go figure! Plus, I gave in to peer pressure and bought the hot new game all the kids are playing… make the jump and watch this week’s episode to see if I liked it!

    Great podcast!
    I just wanted to make a quick mention regarding your comments on Final Fantasy VIII and IX; both are really great games. I am an avid Final Fantasy fan, and while I’m sure every player has their own specific likes and dislikes about the different games in the series, I would highly recommend both of those titles as two of the better productions.

    FVIII is often looked down upon as a sort of the runt of the litter, so to speak, but I myself very much enjoyed the storyline and plot, as well as the original battle system structure (for it’s time). There were a lot of unique traits introduced with this game that made battles and the menu systems customizable, in-depth, and intriguing enough to keep a player’s attention locked in. Additionally, if just enough time is given, I really feel that the wonderful story progression will sweep you up with it, right to the very last (epic) battle.

    as for FFIX, it is one of my personal favorites. Initially, I was disappointed when I first saw that the characters appeared so “chibi”, if you will. Just a short while into playing, however, the way the story and overall feel of the game linked back into the original Final Fantasy’s (I, IV, and VI particularly) had an undeniable hold on me. There are just so many refreshing nods to the classic Final Fantasy games that made this series what it is, all included without making this game feel like a doppelganger hack. While not as mature in appearance as FFVIII, IX will always stand on it’s own as an original, and quite enthralling entry in the series…again, in my humble opinion.

    I hope you find the time to enjoy both of these games in the future, and I also hope this rather lengthy comment helps out in some way! And please, keep up the fantastic work here at Gaygamer! ^_^ Cheers!

    Thank you for that input! I was hoping to hear from people if either of these were worth playing, since I know most everyone has already enjoyed them, but hadn’t heard from anyone! So I appreciate the information!
