A new game, a new fantasy, and a new way to complete mess it up. Vry starts his new journey in Final Fantasy II by immediately face-planting in the most embarrassing way possible.
Final Fantasy II continues to be a harsh mistress. Death after death. Defeat after defeat. Wander after wander. But at their darkest hour, a pair of heroes arise to pull the party back from brink and drag their carcasses to civilization through a swamp of goblin blood and Imperial corpses: Mighty Maria & the Giant Guy! The Heroes of Our Time! — Watch live at https://www.twitch.tv/vrykerion
The time has come to climb the Mirage Tower and enter the… wait… what? I need a WHAT? Oh no. Well, time to go get a ‘fancy’ stick again.
This is it. It’s time to put an end to all of this by… putting an end to the start of this? Wait. What? Join Vry as he finishes the first Final Fantasy, discusses the greater lore of the game, and attempts to figure out a strange timeline that proves that the yes, the games have always been this weird. — Watch live at https://www.twitch.tv/vrykerion
There comes a time in every adventurer’s life when they need to stand up, wander around a Pokemon Gym Puzzle and find a Rat Butt to get a promotion. That day is today. — Watch live at https://www.twitch.tv/vrykerion
Climate Control is a lie. From washing up on the cool shores of Crescent Lake to the flaming pits of Mount Gulg, our heroes free another Crystal enslaved by the Four Fiends. But all that heat was a bit much, so we follow it up with a trip into the Ice Caves to grab a funny rock that might just help us later… — Watch live at https://www.twitch.tv/vrykerion
The quest to restore the Crystals has begun proper! The first stop is to fix the Earth Crystal, but it might not be as stress free as Vry would like. Before cleansing the Crystal, he’ll have to fight a vampire, feed a rock biter, and retrieve a stick! All the while discussing design philosophy, yelling at dogs & chickens, and conversing with bats. — Watch live at https://www.twitch.tv/vrykerion
Vry begins his retrospective with the original Final Fantasy. We rescue Princess Sarah, help encourage maintenance of local infrastructure, discuss music, kill pirates, reenact snow white, try to decipher dwarven accents and then get just get completely lost. — Watch live at https://www.twitch.tv/vrykerion
NOTE: Apologizes about the game audio. We had it accidentally turned too low/off in Streamlabs during recording. We will have this corrected for the next video.
For years I’ve been wanting to go back and play through every Final Fantasy game I could get my hands on. Explore them all with my now-adult eyes and mind and critique them with a more mature perspective. I love this series, I think I’ve made that clear through the years on this blog.
So in honor of NaNoSTREAMo (My attempt at trying to stream a little bit on my twitch channel every day in November), it seemed like a great chance to dig back into the series. I’ll be starting on November 1st, and you can check my various start times on my Twitter. I’ll be checking out the following titles in the series:
Final Fantasy: Dawn of Souls (I and II)
Final Fantasy III (Remake)
Final Fantasy IV (Remake)
Final Fantasy V (Steam/Mobile version)
Final Fantasy VI (Steam/Mobile version)
Final Fantasy VII (PC)
Final Fantasy VIII Remastered
Final Fantasy IX HD
Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster
Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age
Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions
Final Fantasy XIII/XIII-2/Lightning Returns
Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition
World of Final Fantasy Maxima
That’s 18 games. I have no clue how long it will take me to get through them all. Hopefully before Final Fantasy XVI comes out? I hope you will be able to come and join to talk and discuss the series and the various games. I’ll be bringing my usual amount of insight that you are used to on this site with these games.
Naturally, the VODs from the streams will be backed up on my YouTube channel and posted on here.
Wish me luck and thank you as always for your support!
Long ago, in like 2007, someone told this nutjob named Vrykerion that he should try writing down all his weird rants and observations about MMOs, video games, cartoons, D&D, comics and a bunch of other geeky things. He did. This is it. Welcome to the Land of Odd.
