About this Episode

Gary Butterfield and Kole Ross calculate the best way to make a podcast about the first half of Final Fantasy Tactics.

A bitter war of succession, flowery prose, and grid-based combat. In what might be our most technical and considered podcast ever, we dive into the particulars of this storied title to find out exactly why Ramza’s quest has such lasting appeal.
We play up through the end of Chapter 2. The next episode will see us talking about the last half.
