Final Fantasy XV was 10 years in the making and hopes to build on one of the greatest legacies in video games. As regular host, Claire White, enjoys a well deserved vacation, Kyle Willoughby and producer, James Fouhey, consider the past and present of a franchise they’ve played for almost 20 years. James discusses the genres, mythologies, and themes that have defined the series. Kyle describes the trials of XV’s long production and why the first installment was nearly the last. They conclude with their thoughts on the game, how it measures up to its predecessors, and the women of Final Fantasy.
