How the iPhone Learned to Talk
From the mists of time we finally move on from Final Fantasy to other
classic JRPGs as we play everyone’s favorite time travel adventure Chrono
Trigger. What delights do we find in the ATB 2.0? How do we feel about
silent protagonists in 2019? What makes a game beloved and what makes an
old game worth revisiting if one was to go back? All time compresses into
an hour and a half of adventure in this, the episode with (if nothing else)
the really really good music.
Things Discussed: Stadia, breaking up tech companies, Apple games, the
modern video game crash, Ouya, Phantasy Star, Em’s Dark Souls 2 LP, Souls
and Soulslikes, Chrono Trigger
