Hi. Long time Final Fantasy player here. I love this podcast. Jeff and Ryan, thank you for suffering in the pursuit of entertainment. Your sacrifices are appreciated.
I started off playing Final Fantasy on the NES back when I was about 9 or 10. Listening to Jeff and Ryan play through the original game is not only hilarious, it brings back so many great memories (and reminds me how frustrating it is!!). It's also funny and an amazing way to re-live some classic RPGs. Can't wait to hear you cover other games in the series. Great show guys. Subscribed INSTANTLY after episode one.
This kind of stuff is exactly what I would do if I had more time, so listening to these hilarious dudes do it is pure joy.
I just finished the first season. And it is a great example of two men slowly descending into madness! The best part is that they thought they knew how bad it would be. I canât wait to listen to the rest of the seasons.
Humor, positivity, and a pleasantly surprising amount of philosophizing about Del Taco. Final Fantasy IV (Season Two) is one of my favorite games of all time and it was a joy to hear them rip it to shreds.
these guys are hilarious. itâs like an episode of seinfeld.
Everyone else has already mentioned how great the Final Fantasy related content is, but the real gems are in their digressions that cover everything from Oz to their excitement regarding Del Taco and the various existential crises in between. It's easy to tell that Jeff and Ryan put a lot of care into editing these episodes with the inclusion of their fun gimmicks like their miniseries, "Who's Chewing What", their time travelling journey of season 2, and much much more. Give these two a listen.
This is a great show to listen to as you play Final Fantasy yourself, or just to listen to. It's totally cool if you've never even played a Final Fantasy game, as the hosts do a great job of guiding you through the story, in a funny, rambling way.
Iâve been listening since season 1, which was a great start. Season 2 meh, but season 3 has been amazing. Thank God theyâve decided to sleep like adults. A must listen if you have ever played a FF game.
I listen to a lot of podcasts, whether Iâm playing video games or the slower times while Iâm working, I have a backlog of Marc Maron, Rooster Teeth, and Kevin Smith podcasts but I actually find myself relistening to this one quite a bit. I canât wait for FF7.
This is the worst podcast I have ever listened to. It is hour after hour of listening to two guys make the worst choices of their lives. I canât recommend it highly enough
Why are they doing thins? No one knows but we seem to enjoy their pain so hopefully it keeps coming!
Jeff and Ryan playing through the Final Fantasy games is a hilarious romp through a haze of nostalgia, frustration, and the slow yet steady unwinding of their sanity as they muscle through the aspects of these beloved games that weâd overlooked in those olden golden years.If youâre wanting to experience these games again but donât want to play the first 2 hours of the game only to give up leaving the 87th barely-finished save time, then this podcast is for you. Also, Jeff, Ryan. Youâre wrong about baked broccoli. While it definitely doesnât belong on pizza, if baked correctly, broccoli (and cauliflower) is delicious. 1. Melt an obscene amount of butter.2. Salt and pepper the butter. 3. Add minced garlic to the butter. 4. Toss the broccoli/cauliflower mix in the butter. 5. Put into a baking dish. 6. Bake 400 for 25-30 min. They should be soft, yet firm, but not crunchy. The key here is the obscene amount of butter, which is how we do things in the south. Butter it up enough and itâs delicious!
I found it immensely enjoyable to listen to you two trudge desperately through all of final fantasy one. What dedication to.. the cause? Well whatever it was, it was magic. I am listening to season two now and it is just as oddly depressingly fun and satisfying as the first. Good job guys.
These guys are so funny their journey is soul destroying but definitely interesting to listen to. Keep up the great work guys.
Sure. This is a podcast about two guys playing Final Fantasy. And they are fun to listen to, full of emotion, full of laughs and entertainment. But this is a podcast that's about so much more than Final Fantasy. It's about life. It's about the history of the Jerky Boys, and the story of McDonald's. It's about finding out how early is too early to eat olives, and how much clotted cream you can eat before feeling sick. I love Final Fantasy, and that's what drew me in. But I stay for the little bits of life scattered in. No replicator in the universe could duplicate this podcast.
These guys have a true talent for podcasting. Their entire podcast is laid out in a documentary format where they play the games and the review their experiences. Five stars all around.
In life there are prodigies whose natural talent is above and beyond others in their field and I think Jeff and Ryan are that for podcasting. It feels like they naturally achieve what many podcasts struggle to do, make you feel like part of the experience. As I was listening to season 1 I didnât feel like I was listening to a podcast I get like their friend who was being caught up after being out of town for a week. That feeling is what brought me back episode after episode. Keep on trucking.-Andres Suarez-Domit
I listen to a lot of gaming podcasts, and a lot of Final Fantasy related ones. There is no better podcast if you are into these games. These guys play off each other so well. I laugh out loud constantly. Do yourself a favor and listen right meow.
Two guys play Final Fantasy, but probably half the funny stuff they say has little to do with the game. Itâs fun to play along, though the 1/week cadence is slow for gameplay. Highly recommended.
This podcast speaks to all the things I love about the final fantasy franchise and all the things that are really, really dumb. Many times I emotionally connect to the feelings the hosts experience when they get consumed to beat a game, or beat a boss, or find some cool little connection, or think some story conceit is super dumb. I cannot recommend it highly enough
I heard your ad on Greatest Generation and thought, what the hell. I only ever played FF7 when I was a kid but I love hearing about clotted cream and other things. Great show.
Iâm really enjoying the voices in season 3. Keep up the great work guys.
Look forward to this every week, you guys are really entertaining. Unique idea for a podcast too, I've never seen one that's a recording of people chatting while actually playing a game (rather than just discussing it after playing)
You guys are great and equally funny, which is something hard to come by! Iâve just finished playing the first Final Fantasy (origins version, because I donât hate myself). Listening to the pod after playing it made it at least twice as enjoyable! Good luck with your next epic journey!
Just gotta tell you that I love this stuff. The two of you are very funny
This is a great take on a lets play podcast, live footage of them playing intersperced with footage of them commenting on themselves while editing it all together. It gives the podcast a pretty unique feel and makes jokes a lot funnier as the hosts look back on their stupid mistakes and laugh at themselves. I'm not a huge FF fan but this podast is great.
Did you play Final Fantasy on the NES or SNES? Do you listen to podcasts? Do you like entertaining banter about the gameplay and discussions reminiscent of you and your friends when you play games (including discussions youâve likely had about these games)? Then listen to this Podcast. Also, remember to save early and often on your own adventures...
This podcast reminds me of my shared gaming experiences with my friend back in my hay day of video gaming. While the games were different (we went back and forth with Tomb Raider) the dialog and frustration of playing is very similar. It hits home as well because I am a huge FF fan and, it is exciting for me to know that there is a season with Final Fantasy 8 in the future. Canât wait to hear how much you will hate to love to play that one!
Just a ridiculously fun experience. Reminds me of my own marathon RPG sessions win my buddyâs back in the day.
Best podcast Iâve ever listened to! Looking forward to season 3!
This podcast takes me back to when I used to burn weekends and long nights playing these RPGs. Jeff & Ryan share their sadistic, magical journey with us and I thank them as I always wanted to make this attempt but now I can just sit back and hop in and out like Shadow.Jeff & Ryanâs style of editing in themselves from when they edit the podcast is often hilarious and is a great, unique podcasting format. Must listen to anyone who has enjoyed Final Fantasy games over the years.
Iâve just finished season one and it has been an utter and amazing listen. I have tried so hard to stifle my laughter at work. Amazing work.
Love this podcast. The banter is great, and the stories are hilarious. Especially enjoyed remembering the Coors commercial...
If you know old school Final Fantasy like the back of your hand, this podcast is a beautiful and tragic trainwreck. Like watching your younger sibling make relationship mistakes. âNO SUZIE, AIDEN DOESNT ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT YOUâ âDAMMIT JEFF DONT SOMEHOW FORGET TO SAVE WHEN YOURE LITERALLY AT A SAVE POINTâ.
Ever get so invested in a show that youâre yelling at the TV? Even though you know itâs completely pointless, youâll still say âNo, donât go in there!â Or âJust go to sleep already!â I have yelled at my phone (and thus been totally invested) more with this podcast than any other. Jeff and Ryan put you right there in the room with them, and you feel like you did the first time you played Final Fantasy with your friends. You can really visualize them on the couch going through the joys and pains of playing, to the extent that my brain will add closed captions sometimes like: *sobs into pillow* or *punches controller buttons furiously* or even *descends into madness*. But the podcast is more than just playing the game. The guys seem to actually grind through levels of philosophy where theyâll explore life, entertainment, and mall food as they reflect on what the game, and experience playing it, teaches us about ourselves.
I feel like itâs the mid 90âs and Iâm playing this with my friends in the basement on my parentâs house. I remember these games so vividly, but this podcast really challenges what I know or thought I knew about these games. Jeff and Ryan are great at deconstructing what works and what doesnât in this endeavor. Best of luck to them as they go deeper down the rabbit hole. Go support them on Patreon too!!!
These jerks are hilarious and listening to them go through the FF games is the perfect meld of my podcast nerdiness and rpg nerdiness. I CANNOT WAIT for them to get to FF6
As a fan of FF, this has become one of my favorite podcasts. It takes me back to high school when my friends would pass the controller back and forth, play for hours, and have deep, existential banter while playing JRPGs.
This podcast seems to thoroughly explore my experience playing these games with that of my wife watching me play them. Everything is thoughtfully analyzed (sometimes to a fault) and the discussions these classic games instigate provide a great snapshot into the hosts' friendship. The title of the podcast aptly describes my obsessive connection to the series but they also do a pretty good job of showing why it's worth it.
Jeff and Ryan have put together a really funny show, whether or not you've ever played Final Fantasy. But for those who have, prepare for convulsive laughter as you re-live the highs and lows of one of the world's classic game series. These guys do a great job, even when they can't find the map.
I gotta tell ya my-dudes, Iâve been looking for a podcast that Iâll be able to say, years from now, when a friend asks if Iâve heard of NOCKOT âOh yeah, Iâve been listening to that hit podcast since the beginningâ. This is it! I canât wait for the future eps. Keep doing what you do.Oh, and Iâm def referring to your amazing pod as NOCKOT (pronounce Knock-Cot) going forward.
I havenât listened yet, but rating 5 stars for two reasons:1. The name of the podcast2. For leveraging a Priority One message on [another podcast] for advertisingWell done, folks!I will listen later on today.
As someone who has played through FF1 multiple times, I can say without a doubt this is the best way to experience the game!
A podcast for anyone who ever stayed up all night with friends playing video games. Funny commentary, sad commiseration with the evility of NES games, and even some life lessons. You wonât want to escape this maze!
I feel like I am back with my buddies in college when I listen to this. I heard about this from your Jumbotron on greatest generation and I think you guys nailed your target market there
I heard about your show by way of your Jumbotron on Greatest Generation. So you can rest assured you got at least one new listener from that.I love the show! Looking forward to Season 2. Iâm hoping yâall will play through FF2 next. That one is really weird, and it would make for great commentary.
This show is fricking great. Wonderful humor. Pleasingly masochistic. Cool insight. Canât wait for more.
These men are doing us a service.
Good pod guys! Iâve only listened to the first ep, but I like what youâve got here. I hit the subscribe button on my iPhone and it said it couldnât find the feed, so Iâll just keep manually checking in.
