At last, the episode you’ve all been waiting for – Swag Tier finally brings you a full length feature about Final Fantasy Explorers. Ok, it’s not really a “full length” feature unless you define full length as approximately 10 minutes, but that’s still one third of a 30 minute episode, which is a lot of air time for a game that is over one year old. Other topics include:
the massive task of cleaning Megan’s closet;
the relationship between game difficulty and playability in various games;
and Frizbee’s first (and for her sake, hopefully last) encounter with the Easter Bunny.
When Megan isn’t busy laughing at Caitlin’s Pokemon GO misfortunes, she’s staying up all night to play Bejeweled Stars. And when Steven isn’t busy keeping busy, he’s putting hours into Final Fantasy XV. Join us on this week’s episode of Swag Tier to hear about these two games, the new iOS exclusive Mario game, and a special Swag Tier prediction of when Megan will finally get around to opening and playing some of the RPG’s she (and others) paid full price for but can probably be found at Five Below these days.
It’s a misnomer to call us a gaming podcast. We know that no one listens to us for gaming news, they listen because we’re entertaining and have great chemistry. Case in point: we’re in the middle of E3, but talk about it for only a minute at the start and end of the episode. We’d rather talk about:
Megan buying KCON NY tickets while sitting at a red light;
In this episode, we can’t seem to stop talking about handheld games! We open with a tribute to the late Akira Tago, the Puzzle Master of the Professor Layton games, discuss some of our most memorable moments involving handheld systems, and we finish strong with how an ongoing obsession with fanfiction has shaped Megan into the bo-*ahem* girl she is today.
Topics in between include:
How New Super Mario Bros. 2 is the perfect game for anyone with an affinity for in-game collectibles
Why Bravely Default is no longer on Megan’s list of tentative games to buy/play
A throwback to Dogz and Catz, old PC games that taught Steven valuable life lessons about pet ownership
It was entirely accidental. Seriously, we’ve been trying pretty hard for the past six episodes to keep it clean. But once we made the segue from drive-thrus to erotic Amazon items, and then from zebra onesies to letting it hang out there in front of a children’s minigolf employee…we couldn’t go back.
