“MAGE CAST” episode #015 – Original Sin


February is the month of love so for this episode, I brought on as a guest my very own real-lifu waifu, Blythe the White Out Mage! We talked on a game that impacted the both of us: Final Fantasy X, its firsts and lasts, its uniquely South Pacific influences, its characters, their themes and their development, coping with pain, overcoming prejudice, free spirits vs responsibility, voice acting in its infancy and the troubles of English localization, storytelling band-aids, outsider archetypes, falsifying religious concepts and the triumph of reason, and… voice impressions! We also take listener questions, address the sequel, FFX-2, briefly, and figure out exactly what Tidus really is.
