“The following is a contributor post by the ABXY Mage.”
In the conclusion of my dialogue with my legendary and loquacious friend, The Well-Red Mage, we begin by spending a little more time on our favorite–and the objectively greatest–game ever: Chrono Trigger. This bags us another funny story from Red about a mispronunciation from his past.
Next, we get into the many interesting names and locations in Final Fantasy IX, a game which The Well-Red Mage definitely knows more about than I do. Speaking of games Red knows more about, he also explains how to know the definitive way to say Pokémon names. His final lesson takes us to the ‘aga’ and ‘aja’ spells from some later Final Fantasy games.
Somewhere in there, we talk about some miscellaneous game names as well as how to say “xeno.” Back to the world of Final Fantasy, we discuss cities from VII, Aeris vs. Aerith, and Cait Sith. Finally, we end with a humorous debate and quite a bit of joking around and laughing. As always, it was a great time.
The ABXY Mage leads a double life of unfathomable hipness, if his expertise in jazz is any indication. Music maker, fandangoist, writer, you can find this hip cat as ABXY Reviews on Twitter and on YouTube.
