Though we have completed the game at this point, we shift topics for one episode before our conclusion. We have guest Nathaniel Chapman on to discuss the music of Final Fantasy 6 with us. Topics include leitmotif, Final Fantasy battle music, the differences between NES- and SNES-era musical technology, and the game's climactic piece Dancing Mad.
In our next episode in two weeks, we will conclude our discussion on Final Fantasy 6 with Kefka's Tower and our overall thoughts on the game, and we will also announce our next game!
As always, you can keep up with any developments on our twitter.

We complete all of the remaining optional content in the World of Ruin, leaving only Kefka's Tower remaining.
Our next episode in two weeks will not be the final episode, instead it will be a special interlude discussing the music of Final Fantasy 6, with our coworker Nathaniel Chapman as a guest. However, since we'll be talking about the whole game including Kefka and the ending, it's recommended you finish the game anyway.
The episode following that will return normal discussion, covering Kefka's Tower and our concluding thoughts.
Around that time, you can also keep an eye on our twitter for discussion of our next game!
