Brad, I am so angry at you. I'm loving it, 8 hours in and it's the best FF I've played since VI. I don't see how you can rag on the combat system. It's original and well thought out. I will be the first to admit it is just press X for the first 2-3 hours or so, but they have to introduce all the systems and strategy you have to use in battle. And it would be a LOT to take in all at once.  The story isn't bad at all and it lets you know what happened at the start and why if you play further into the game.
 
Also, Final Fantasy is about bringing in a new experience every time. God forbid we have a game where you don't go to goddamn towns. The game is linear, why is that a bad thing? You're seriously bumming me out here, I was playing it and loving it and come to listen to the Bombcast and you guys just totally shit all over it. =(

Why are there 113 posts to this podcast already?  Is GB really that popular around the interwebs?  I know a lot of journalists listen to you guys as well as like all the ex-gamespotters, but holy cow, this was just put up.  Well, keep up the awesome job guys, you got that following for good reason!
 
BTW, Rich Gallup, I love you!  Come back to and join GiantBomb.  I previewed the first 3 minutes and I must say, you don't disappoint.  Already Jeff is wise cracking with his... "this is a medium sized James".  Oh, and then Rich follows it up with, "as one who partakes in energy foods, energy rods...".  Oh, this is going to be a hell of a show I am feeling!   Will listen to the rest tomorrow morn!

Nice to hear from Rich! But, a bombcast with no Vinny is like a pizza with no pepperoni. Still tasty, just not quite as satisfying.

To be fair, they're not exactly alone in having issues with the game. We've heard mixed reviews since the Japanese release, from both reviewers as well as regular players who've imported.

"We made those overtones last week."  Ah okay, I thought I was reading into things a little too much but it has been confirmed.

PS3 blows, enough said. Go Valve.

I didn't think about that with Phoenix Downs either, I always thought they were a potion.

Edited by MarkWahlberg

I wonder if the Lincoln Force concept was at all influenced by the  'Lincoln vs. Vampires' book? 
 
Edit: Nevermind. Also, this episode is hilarious.

Posted by Brazzle

Fuck yeah, I was hoping Rich would be around because of GDC.
 
Release episode two of Time Trotters, the people demand it.

@freshym: There is one thing that I think we can all agree with Brad regarding the game.  The combat system could have opened up a bit sooner.  The paradigm system is quite interesting, and honestly quite good.  While access to it is very plot based, so the delay in access to it is understandable, making the combat of the first 2 hours (that really is all that portion of the game is, no longer) of the game extremely limited was not the way to present it.

I'll admit that it took me awhile to get phoenix down, but I'm sure I got it by their second appearance in the series.
