It's summertime, and that means amusement parks! Except I get nauseous just riding those swinging chairs reserved for babies and grandmothers, so I'm content visiting digital parks like Final Fantasy 7's Gold Saucer.
In our latest Final Fantasy 7 Report—which we're still too scared to classify as an official report, apparently—Kat visits the Saucer and we talk about the sights, the sounds, and the horrendous poverty seething in the shadows of Shinra's gilded park. The trip to the Saucer goes very wrong and ends violently after an encounter with the boss of Corel Prison, Dyne [download link here].
We also talk about Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, which is an excellent Koji Igarashi game with a not-so-excellent Switch port. Kat and I are both into Slay the Spire, so we gab a little bit about the many, many ways in which this top-notch roguelike card game has made us suffer. Finally, we throw ourselves at your feet and beg for forgiveness because our TurboGrafx-16 RPG Console Quest wasn't nearly as thorough as it needed to be.
Love us? Hate us? Join the conversation below, and we might read it on the show! Bonus trivia: In my younger years when I could binge-ride roller coasters without regret, my favorite coaster was the Mighty Canadian Mine Buster.

Kat takes in the extravagance of Final Fantasy 7's Gold Saucer, but her trip to the Happiest Place on Wherever ends badly when she goes head-to-head with Barret's angry old friend, Dyne. We also talk about the upcoming Pokemon Masters mobile game and Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon before moving on to a chat about Slay the Spire, the roguelike card game that hurts so good. Finally, we pay tribute to some of the TurboGrafx-16 RPGs we neglected to salute in last week's RPG Console Quest.
