Cyberpunk 2077, Episode 3: Been Caught Stealing feat. John Warren and Carolyn Petit After we did all that prep work last episode, it's time to finally begin the heist. John Warren returns alongside newcomer Carolyn Petit to talk about how The Heist embodies Cyberpunk 2077's potential before large swaths of the game squander it. We also get sidetracked talking about V as a protagonist, the underlying humanity of the cyberpunk genre, and finally meet Keanu Reeves as Johnny Silverhand.

Enjoy the show!

Cyberpunk 2077, Episode 2: Bad Reputation Before we go off to the heist, we've got to meet who we're working for. This episode, Ken and Eric travel through Night City to meet Evelyn Parker and the Maelstrom so we're best equipped to steal from Arasaka royalty.

We also talk about general feelings on Cyberpunk 2077's open world, our host's approach to roleplaying V, and why this game works for Ken when other open world games don't.

Cyberpunk 2077, Episode 1: Welcome to the Jungle It's time for a new era of Normandy FM, as we leave Spira and head into Night City. It's time for Cyberpunk 2077.

After our hosts talk about all the baggage and fallout surrounding the game's launch, Ken and Eric talk about the game's three life paths, how they come together, and how they frame both their versions of V going into the main game.

BioBits: Burn My Dread It's been a hot minute since we had a BioBit, and even longer since it was about Dragon Age.

Final Fantasy X Finale: Ever After So...Final Fantasy X and X-2 have an extended universe because Square-Enix doesn't know how to let a good thing go. For our final episode of our Final Fantasy X season, we talk about all the bullshit Square put out in its efforts to expand upon the world of Spira. And only one of the three we're talking about are any good. But we have to contend with them and talk about what a Final Fantasy X-3 that follows them might look like.

Works discussed:
Final Fantasy X-2: Last Mission
Final Fantasy X-2.5: ~Eien no Daishō~
Final Fantasy X: ~Will~

Enjoy the show!

Bonus: PAX East 2022 Defend Your Problematic Fave feat. Niki Grayson and Nadia Oxford If you weren't able to make it to Boston for PAX East 2022, we've got the audio recording of our Normandy FM x Fanbyte x Axe of the Blood God crossover panel: Defend Your Problematic Fave. This panel was a collaboration between us and our coworkers Niki Grayson of Fanbyte and Nadia Oxford of Axe of the Blood God, where we talked about our favorite video game sickos and freaks, then asked the audience to tell us theirs. However, unlike our Mass Effect and Dragon Age ranking panels, this was also a fairly visual panel that requires some visual aid. So we have included the giant Google Slide presentation we used for you to scroll through while you listen.

Final Fantasy X-2, Episode 10: This is My Story It's time to say goodbye to Spira. Well, we would like to, but we've still got that extended universe garbage to deal with after this. But we are finally finished with the two main games of our Final Fantasy X season, as we're wrapping up Final Fantasy X-2.

We check in on some of the late-game content, talk about how X-2 gates exposition behind its hardest segments, and eventually, we head into the Farplane to destroy Vegnagun and stop Shuyin.

To everyone who's joined us on our trip from Zanarkand and back, thank you! We still have another episode left to talk about Final Fantasy X-2: Last Mission and the aforementioned extended universe garbage, but this concludes the main segments of our Final Fantasy X retrospective. Onward to Night City!

Final Fantasy X-2, Episode 9: Vidina Shuyin threatens Spira with destruction, but we first need to make sure things are in order for after the fight.

This episode we're wrapping up most of the Chapter 5's side stories. From Wakka and Lulu's baby, Kimahri's status as a Ronso elder, and we get to the bottom of how Maechen knows so much about Spira's past.

Final Fantasy X-2, Episode 8: 1000 Words feat. Jenny Windom Jenny Windom is back to help us talk through Final Fantasy X-2's fourth chapter. It's the shortest in the game, but one of its most memorable.

Yuna wants to help bring the warring factions of Spira together, and what better way to do that than with a concert in the Thunder Plains? This episode we talk about the significance of music in Final Fantasy X-2, and how one song illustrates the parallels between Spira's past, its present, and the two sets of lovers at its center.
