TLoR: Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest

In this episode of The Legend of Retro, Craig and Xander celebrate 25 years of Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest, which is the roller coaster of the Final Fantasy series. Lots of highs and lows, you probably shouldn't have eaten before hand, but you'll probably keep going back even though it there are probably better things to do.  Not my best analogy, but it will do. Bad accents almost ruin Retro Relapse, and the RPG Protagonist battle keeps trucking onward.
