Episode 27 – Final Fantasy VIII with David Donnella

Improviser, writer, and the computeriest hunk ever David Donnella came on the show to discuss one of the more creative and weird games of all time, Final Fantasy VIII, and the former Philly improv king himself did not disappoint.

David tells Conner how he actually got this game by mistake when he was hoping for FFVII, how he shared the journey of this game with his sister Sarah, and gives a professor quality lesson of the junction system. The two dive into that and so much more on this great hang of an episode.
