Smash the Game Awards

Veni, veni, venias. Sephiroth has had a pretty big week. From being announced as the newest playable character for Smash Bros. to winning two Game Awards (with help from other characters we suppose). Join us as we dive into all the goodness this week!

Trivia question of the day: During the SNES era Squaresoft made a game for the US in lieu of releasing Final Fantasy V as they feared it would be too complicated and not resonate with a western audience. (Answer at the bottom of the episode summary).

I have been a fan of the series since FFVII in 1997. I have completed most of the numbered titles including both MMOs. I do not fancy myself a content creator as this is my first attempt at podcasting, but I am a huge fan and hopefully can provide you with a little entertainment. I am currently playing FFXIV as a Red Mage on Leviathan.
