Listener mail call time again: Final Fantasy V

Friends, we’re a mere two weeks out from our next Retronauts recording session weekend (we have to do them more frequently now that we’re committed to producing more episodes, you see). As with our previous sessions, I’d like to call for some listener mail to be read aloud on the show, time permitting.

The first of our March recording sessions will continue our Final Fantasy deep-dive series with the fifth game in the franchise, sneakily known by the name Final Fantasy V. This was the second one with the amazing and flexible revamped Job System, and the first to skip a U.S. release on its original platform only to show up in a later console generation. It’s also the one to have inspired the Four Job Fiesta charity fundraiser series.

There’s a lot to say about this game! So, whether you discovered it as a 16-bit import game, checked it out in Final Fantasy Anthology on PlayStation, grabbed it on Game Boy Advance, or found it through some other means (we won’t ask), drop me an email at jparish [at] retronauts-dot-com. (You can respond via comments here or Twitter if you like, but, spoiler alert: I only pull up email-based comments during recording.)

Thanks, and look forward to a few more calls to action over the coming week!

Listener mail solicitation time

Hello, everyone, and happy new year. I hope!

As you’ll hear in this week’s episode of the podcast (which goes live tomorrow), I’d like to integrate a listener mail segment into my episodes of Retronauts going forward. Bob has done a few mailbag roundups as full episodes, and I don’t see any need for that to change! However, I would like to get a little of that action on the shows I host as well. The way we used to do, back a very long time ago, at 1UP.

The next episode I will be recording will be the prototype episode for Retronauts East, and that should be happening within the next week or so. The topic at hand for this session: The TI-99/4A personal computer. Of course, I have already recorded a Micro episode on the TI-99/4A:

But this time we’ll be going into much greater depth on the subject, as befits a 90-minute episode versus one that tops out at 10. And, as I’ve mentioned, we’d like to field your questions on the topic! So please, shoot me an email at jparish [at] retronauts [dot] com sometime this week and we’ll do our best to read your thoughts (and answer your questions, when relevant). Thanks!
