Welcome to a special MightyQBros podcast celebrating the 20th anniversary of 'Rick V. Day'!

 

On July 18 1997, Eric "MightyQDawg" and his brothers received a very special package in the mail containing a huge lot of SMS games. It was a very exciting day for us, and today, on the 20th anniversary of this momentous event, the MightyQBros get together to reminisce about our days growing up playing video games. Enjoy the podcast!

Gaming Strengths and Weaknesses

CCAnswers: 1:0237

  • @alatinolawyer - pick game franchises that Nintendo and either Sony or MS have to trade and take over (1 each way)
  • @jj19862004 - #TeamCake or #TeamIceCream
  • @MustyHobbit - How do you tackle new (to you) libraries?
  • @k_song - Do you binge listen to a band before seeing them live? After? Currently listening to #BobDylan in anticipation.
  • @FranticSociety - Do you think Nintendo will release a N64 classic next year & Gamecube Classic the year after? What games would you want on them?
  • @RetroPixil - What if any title have you tried with very low expectations of enjoying & ended up loving the entire play through?
  • @MightyQDawg - Given that someone in the CC committed a crime and served jail time, who was it and what was his or her crime?
  • @technodork437 - Is it weird that when I watched P1 blow into his 3DS to dry his waifu that I not only maintained eye contact but kind of liked it

Level 1  

P2(Mark) gives a quick overview of Final Fantasy IV and panel discusses their memories of the game and first impressions.

 

 

 

  • Series: Final Fantasy
  • Platform(s):
  • iOS (Port of DS remake)
  • Release Date: JP: July 19, 1991, NA: November 23, 1991
  • Genre: RPG

 

Level 2 16:35

Discuss story of the game: 16:35

Cecil, a dark knight and airship captain from the Kingdom of Baron, begins to outwardly question his king’s order to slaughter a village full of wizards. He does this after slaughtering a village full of wizards. Baron’s king strips Cecil of his command and sends him out on yet another genocidal quest, which makes Cecil snap. After fighting his way through underground tunnels, zombie mountains, and antlion dens, Cecil renounces the way of dark knightdom and becomes a holy paladin.

Over the course of this journey, Cecil discovers that behind King Baron’s strange behavior is a dude named Golbez, who has a grand plan to collect all the world’s crystals and kill everyone. Golbez makes it really, really personal, so Cecil sets out to defeat him, assembling a lineup of quirky party members along the way. Cecil and his party thwart evil dancing dolls, giant walls, and wolves made of fire. Eventually they even go to the moon, because Final Fantasy has always been insane.
