I really appreciate that the members of Talking Time got together this year and decided to make a concerted effort to ensure April 1 would not be a complete travesty. In fact, it is quite the opposite thanks to the debut of no less than three different promising NES-era Let’s Play efforts. As they say in Weekly Famitsu promo banners from 1984, エキサイチングだぜ！！
Look, here’s Octopus Prime battling the fake apocalypse in Crystalis. And over here is TheSL fighting the good fight against the economy by pursuing multiple jobs in Final Fantasy III. And, perhaps most importantly, Brickroad is taking yet another stab at the original Final Fantasy… this time within rather foolish self-imposed parameters. Stick around for the shocking plot twist!
Of course, there are many other Let’s Play efforts underway. These three simply represent a concentrated dose of mind-blowing radness.
In other awesome news, I learned today that Yasumi Matsuno has a Twitter account. Of course, I can only read little snippets of what he writes, but a whole bunch of his posts obviously concern Queen. So, yeah, that’s kind of great.
