These continue to be the best blog content on Giant Bomb, if not the best content full stop.
Seeing as you're now playing through the last good Final Fantasy game, it seems like the next logical step would be for you to play through the first good/great one. When do you plan on tackling Final Fantasy IV?
@mento: Namco's quietly been in the mini-console-adjacent space for a while now, and some of the more obscure games I've already covered have appeared there (I believe Jr. Pac-Man has been on licensed TV arcade machines, for instance). As it happens, their most recent venture in this space was through AtGames, and has caused something of a shitshow. Short version being, some of the units contain NES ports of games while others contain arcade originals.
Also, I can't wait to get into the Tales games so my lengthy time between posts is at least justified by the games themselves. I am maybe a quarter through Tales of the Abyss on 3DS and am waiting to go either XBO or Switch on Vesperia next year.
