SoDcast 10 - Better Late Than Never
Phase Two arrives tomorrow and it wouldn't be a launch without a developer interview, so listen in as Countdown chats with Classic devs Tim Jones and Josh Greenfield about what's coming our way. After that, we finally publish two amazing conversations that circumstances have (grossly) delayed, as Jimmy from The Fantasy Nuttwork & Allen from The Library of Allenxandria stop by to discuss story telling in gaming, and then, with the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2 right around the corner, we hear from game composer Will Roget and music academic Ryan Thompson all about the magic of the Final Fantasy VII soundtrack.Phase 2 Dev Interview - 10:40Story Telling in Gaming - 40:55The Music of Final Fantasy VII - 2:50:15Buy Josh a beer & help keep Countdown on the airwaves over at Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/joshcorbett Or if subscriptions aren't your thing, support Josh & Countdown by shouting him a one time beer here: https://ko-fi.com/countdowntoclassicFind Jimmy's book channel @ https://www.youtube.com/@thefantasynuttworkFind Allen's book channel @ https://www.youtube.com/@TheLibraryofAllenxandriaFind Will Roget @ https://twitter.com/WilbertRogetFind Ryan Thompson @ https://twitter.com/BardicKnowledgeCheck out Josh on YouTube for gameplay streams and live podcast recordings here: https://www.youtube.com/@countdowntoclassicJoin the Countdown To Classic discord here: https://discord.gg/83thqw2fBwCheck out Josh's hilarious movie podcast here: https://open.spotify.com/show/469qUDnQHBkCogdjZyFUjb?si=jNgDTiEnSvKBbZuNz2xcxw

Also, we sound off on the topic that has been hot on the lips of the subreddit, gold buying, as the community has started to loudly voice their displeasure with the early presence of bots and bought gold, and shame those who engage in it.The Call w/ Actriev, Atsu, Balazarth, Drew, Fredmunroe, HideousJohn, Hunk, JackTBlade, Leo, Mytus, Pikseh, Sig, Tareyak, Ubiquitous, & Ziimm - 2:55Buy Josh a beer & help keep Countdown on the airwaves over at Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/joshcorbett Or if subscriptions aren't your thing, support Josh & Countdown by shouting him a one time beer here: https://ko-fi.com/countdowntoclassicCheck out Josh on YouTube for gameplay streams and live podcast recordings here: https://www.youtube.com/@countdowntoclassicFind Tareyak on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/@TareyakJoin the Countdown To Classic discord here: https://discord.gg/83thqw2fBwCheck out Josh's hilarious movie podcast here: https://open.spotify.com/show/469qUDnQHBkCogdjZyFUjb?si=jNgDTiEnSvKBbZuNz2xcxw
