Ranking 30 Years of Final Fantasy

So many crystals, chocobos, and moogles, all in one place!

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been over five years since I helped PixlBit ring in Final Fantasy’s 25th anniversary with an exhaustive retrospective series, but here we are. Even though I missed the actual 30th anniversary of my favorite game franchise, I couldn’t let that milestone pass without doing something to show my love for this epic saga. To that end, I submit to you, our dear readers, my ordered ranking of the fifteen main games in the series. Naturally, this excludes spinoffs like Final Fantasy Tactics and direct sequels like Lightning Returns, and this is very much my list and in no way is PixlBit’s definitive order. But hey, everyone loves a good list, right? Each game features a quick paragraph reprising some of the information from the FF Retrospective, and a more personal take on each entry. I hope you enjoy!

Wolfenstein: The New Order Review Rewind

Nazi killing at its finest!

In December of 2017, a spokesperson for EA Games stated that gamers don’t like linear, story-based games as much as they used to. That was an odd comment to me, in a year full of well received single player games, including a sequel to 2014’s Wolfenstein: The New Order. Since I had missed the game back then, I thought this was a good time to finally check it out. Ten hours later, I am deeply pleased that I did.

The Evil Within 2 Review

Smile for the camera!

I have been a fan of the survival horror genre since Capcom coined the term to describe their release of Resident Evil way back for the original PlayStation. It’s been a long time since the heyday of the horror game, and getting your scares on consoles has become a rarity. So I was pleasantly surprised that, not only did I enjoy The Evil Within 2 after finding the first game lacking, but it has become one of my favorite entries in the survival horror genre.

Nerds Without Pants Special: Nierly There

Not using any music from Nier in this podcast: great joke, or epic troll? You decide!

Welcome to a quick and dirty special edition of Nerds Without Pants! Episode 125 was going long, so this bonus episode contains the true ending to that episode, plus another 40-50 minutes of cutting room floor stuff. We talk mostly about Nier: Automata, but there is plenty of other stuff in there, as well. Hope you enjoy! Send your hate mail for Julian to twitter.

Super Mario Odyssey Review

Bring on Super Mario Illiad!

I used to love playing baseball when I was a kid. But the one part I hated about Little League was the participation trophies at the end of the year. I was on some really bad teams and really good teams and on both we got more or less the same reward. Even as a kid I could tell that trophy was meaningless despite the fun I had playing during the season. Like Little League Baseball, Super Mario Odyssey provided me with a ride that is an absolute blast along the way, yet failed to provide a rewarding experience.

Nerds Without Pants Episode 123: Eat It

Figures that Julian had the most examples. What a fatty!

After a monumentally long episode of Nerds Without Pants, the Pantsless Ones bring things down to normal show length. Which is to say, still pretty damn long. Maybe Julian should host up and reign these guys in, eh?
