Welcome back to Save File plays Final Fantasy VII! If you missed it last time, you should go read it. Don’t worry, I’ll wait. If you missed it last time and don’t care to go read it, here’s what happened in a nutshell: Sephiroth is alive, President Shinra is dead, and the party has left Midgar.
The first time I played this game at the age of… something young… I was amazed at this point. I thought the entirety of the game was going to take place in Midgar, and now we get to explore the entire friggin’ WORLD?! This was my first RPG, and I was so excited to explore this gigantic world. It had already seemed to me like Midgar was gigantic, and it’s just a blip on the map. I mean, holy crap.
With that in mind, I’m not really going to explore the world map this episode. Or next episode. Because I just want to get this part of the game over with as quickly as I can. I’m such a jerk, I’m NOT EVEN GOING TO POST THE WORLD MAP MUSIC (which is amazing). I just want to be done with the next part, and then we can explore the amazing world of FFVII.
To that end, the party was instructed to meet up at a town called Kalm. I’m just going to bee line it straight there.
Of course, I manage to get into a battle along the way. The purple things are Kalm Fangs, and the goblin looking dude is a Prowler.
