Ultima Final Fantasy | The Ultimate Final Fantasy Podcast

In this episode, Joe and Kaleb read their newest Itunes review, talk about the housing crisis in Final Fantasy XIV, where the economy is horrendous and houses cost millions of gil, leaving many players homeless, bringing down the value of the cities. We also discuss the newly released job classes in Final Fantasy Explorers; the monk, the warrior/tank, and the black mage. We also mention that this episode is super short, because we ran out of space on our media host and are too cheap to upgrade.

A semi-indepth discussion on the origins of three popular summons in the Final Fantasy series: Bahamut, Leviathan, and Ifrit. We discuss their scriptural origins, as well as discussing the descriptions of the beasts. They are described differently than they appear in the Final Fantasy games, and we theorize  possible reasons for these changes within the Final Fantasy series.

This episode involves a thr**some as well as "payment" for the destruction of the hotel room from the night before. Not nearly as explicit as the previous episode. This is horrible Final Fantasy VII fan fiction and does not represent the rest of the podcast.

We discuss our failed interview with a co writer and co-producer of the  failed Final Fantasy VII Miniseries, Mr. Galliger. We also discuss fan fiction works as a whole, and the legality of it all. We discuss what direction we want to take when dealing with fan created works, as well as the direction for the podcast as a whole. In news this week, Final Fantasy Explorers is set to be released on December 18th in Japan. More rumors about a Final Fantasy XV and a Kingdom Hearts 3 release date. We discuss another rumor in which a blogger believes that Kingdom Hearts 3 will not have the character Genie, due to Robin Williams death, even though he didn't voice the Genie in either of the original games.

We discuss how to defeat the 45th hunt in Final Fantasy XII. Lots of physical attacks and healing are necessary to beat this boss. The occasional non elemental spell is also highly damaging. This is easily the most intense fight in all of Final Fantasy XII, and maybe in the entire Final Fantasy series. Dont forget that you can leave and heal up at a nearby crystal. This is not a one sequence fight, which is a first in the Final Fantasy series.

How are Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy X related? We'll tell ya!

Remember the kid named "Shinra" in Final Fantasy X-2? There's a theory, supported by one of the writers of Final Fantasy X-2, that he is an ancestor to the creators of the Shin-Ra company.


In this episode we discuss this possible connection, and its many implications. The similarity between the farplane and the Promised Land, the Pyreflies in Advent Children, and the colombus like takeover of one race to another via interplanetary travel.

Who doesn't love a good minisode?

Part of our Ultima Final Fantasy Back to School Spectacular, our new "did you know" segment! Today we'll be discussing the mythical origins of certain things in Final Fantasy VII, from character names to Shinra. Why did Square choose the names they did for certain characters? Perhaps the character's derive from these mythic origins. Joe also appologizes once again of his mistake naming Aerith "Aeris".

Enjoy the new jingles too, we worked hard on those.

Characters Discussed:

Cloud, Aerith (Aeris), Sephiroth, Shinra, Hojo, and much more!
