Great episode. Isn't that kiddie Halo a reference to an old LRR. I remember seeing it somewhere.

Yeah, Square loves to dangle the FF7 remake carrot.

But I'd rather they remake 5, 8, or 9.

8 because its Summon heavy, and watching those sommons isn't as amazing as it was then.

@ Freebird: Yeah the epic "Halo: The Future of Gaming" video http://loadingreadyrun.com/videos/view/228/Halo-The-Future-of-Gaming

Brilliant episode!

" People will tell you that they want their smoothie to taste like the blood of their fallen enemies, but when you actually give them that, they freak the hell out."

I ROFLCOPTERED

I kinda think, no Im worried, the 360 is trying to become more like the Wii.
Oh and I'm happy with any FF remake as long as it's not 10...I.HATE. BLITZBALL.

Well, you only have to play Blitzball like 2 times. The rest is optional.

And winning is also optional.

Tell me about it. Those two times took FOREVER. The computer cheated so much. Grrrr. Blitzball.

But anyway, what was the cookie joke at the end?

That too. Blitzball doesn't matter in that game.

Best ENN yet. Makes me want a cookie and a blood-flavoured slurpee as well.

Good episode as always.
And I loved the LRR reference.

So much pure gold in this one. I'd like to give a special round of applause to the person who made the FF7 dangling like a carrot image.

Ya this episode rocked my socks. Seeing the Future of Halo reference brought a smile to my dreary world and the Natal story was well written. P.S. I appreciate how early you get these episodes posted, I can watch them before I head of to school.

I so would get Master Chief and Friends, oh wait, that's ODST now.

Brilliant episode!

Ahhhh, the first LRR episode I ever watched. The memories...

OT: Great episode, I loved the FF7 remake joke.

Loved the video but that last bit was hilarious!

FFVII will get an 8-bit demake on WiiWare. Count on it.

The graphical improvement would be nice.

The sad thing is - I live in Guildford.

Blood donors are usually given some kind of snack when they're done donating, usually in the form of a cookie.

I have had both the GOW3 Slurpee flavor and the blood of my enemies and I consider the Slurpee flavor to be better, but only slightly.

Great episode.
Great "Future of gaming" reference

Brilliant ENN.

Loved the reference to "Future of Gaming" XD

And the Milo story, heh

Great episode.
I really dislike the whole NATAL idea with XBox though.

Poor Final Fantasy Fanboys...

Thanks ENN, great as always.

Haha, I really liked the star bored part. xD

Great episode
Loves the Final Fantasy reference.

all in all a good episode, love the Castlevania: SotN reference near the end

That was awesome!

Is it just me... or does anyone else want one of those slushies now...

wow
thats all i gotta say
and that it was an awesome episode yet again!

Yay! LRR you've done it again. that was too freaking great one of the best so far!

I've gotta say, nicely delivered feature story, Jer! Milo had it coming!

Also, even though I'm a fan of and quite enjoy my share of Final Fantasy games.. The Last Story. Really, Mr. Sakaguchi? First, you split from SE's downfall, start Mistwalker, both awesome moves.. But then Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey? Although I personally don't mind the sidestory deep in Lost Odyssey and how the dream sequences are written, still doesn't make me -want- to play it much.. Thesaurus looks like the new must-have game-naming device. Such an interesting concept.

As for Final Fantasy, they've re-released and re-re-released Final Fantasy 1&2 already. NES -> DS -> PSP.. Now the iPhone? That's just stupid. FF7 really is the only FF game that needs a proper remake. 8 and 9 were graphically better anyway and Crisis Core: FFVII on PSP is a perfect way to have an action-RPG. Maybe it was Zack that did it, but that game was much more fun with the music remixes and nicely pieced together prequel storyline.

VIII may have been summon-heavy, but it was a terrible, terrible game. The only thing I even care to like about it is the Ragnarok airship that COULDN'T GO BACK TO SPACE!? and maybe Esthar, which was an awesome futuristic city.

I mean, seriously.. FFVII could be a BRILLIANT game as a remake simply from the much more immersive story compared to its predecessors (arguably FFVI though, maybe?), but really, add the overall gameplay and rather entertaining cutscenes from how Crisis Core looked and it may be pretty damn awesome.

Either way, awesome ENN this week!

Why donate blood when you can steal it and still get a cookie?
