Bucket List Gamers

Sharpen your unfeasibly large swords and get the cement mixer going so you can style your hair, because we're looking at an unprecedented SIX games on this week's show! Secret of Mana (70), Chrono Trigger (33), Final Fantasy 6 (37), Final Fantasy 7 (7), Final Fantasy 9 (95) and Final Fantasy 10 (76) are all under the microscope in this bumper JRPG episode, packed full of teenage angst and fake laughter!

Travel through time, take on the empire, Race Chocobos, play underwater football, wake up a sleeping deity, pick pockets at a carnival and much more in these classic turn based strategy games!

Plus we briefly discuss the recent Van Gough x Pokemon debacle, which has left thousands of fans disappointed (and thousands of scalpers VERY rich.)

Creators & Guests

Having been friends since college, when Jay revealed plans for what would later become BLG, Eddie jumped at the chance to be involved. Eddie has been a gamer for as long as anyone can remember, citing The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask as his favourite of all time.
Coming from a writing background, having spent over a decade running WWEBlog, Jay decided it was time to go in a different direction. That direction was gaming and thus the Bucket List Gamers (and Bucket List Board Gamers) were born!

What is Bucket List Gamers?

Each show we take a look at one of the '100 Games to play before you die', as well as discussing the latest releases, consoles, successes and scandals in the gaming world.

From Defender to Daytona, Mario to Metroid and Sonic to Street Fighter, if it's in the 100 the BLG team will play it... eventually!
