Deep Listens is a gaming podcast series I'm recording with a few of my friends. Every two weeks we pick and play a new game and then discuss it from a literary, philosophical, and game design perspective. Its kind of like a book club for video games. We try to dig as deep as we can on an individual game every episode so check it out!
In our flagship FFIX episode Chris @zombiepie -REDACTED- and Gino are joined by the Deep Listens co-hosts Billy and Pete to discuss the first disc of FFIX. Billy lists some very specific issues with FFIX's active time battle system, ZP lays into Tetra Master, and Pete hates on the twee aesthetic as Gino stews in the corner while trying to keep everyone on board. We discuss everything from the slow opening to the somber scenes at the end of Burmecia. Hopefully the non-Gino portions of the cast get more on board once we get to disc 2... they have to, right? Right? Please?
