On this week’s episode of Channel F (The Fanbyte Video Game Game Show™), host merritt k and friends/coworkers/contestants LB Hunktears, Nerium, and Fūnk-é Joseph gather together to celebrate the third anniversary of Fire Emblem: Three Houses, a beloved game held in the possible highest regard by everyone on the show, except for Fūnk-é, who’s never played it. Fūnk-é also wasn’t warned about the day’s theme ahead of time and thus was given no opportunity to prepare, but merritt assures me that everything is on the up-and-up with regards to her challenges’ impartiality, so I’m inclined to believe her.
(You can also listen on Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts!)
Though the quiz in question pertains specifically to merritt’s Blue Lions playthrough of Three Houses, each contestant is expected to answer questions about who was killed, who was saved, etc. This includes Fūnk-é. who — and I can’t stress this enough — has never played Three Houses. I’m not even sure if Fūnk-é has played a Fire Emblem game, period (not that it would help much here). They somehow manage to make a respectable showing during one of our longest quizzes to date, but is it enough to snatch an unlikely victory from the romantic/tactical jaws of defeat?
Later, the gang takes a quick trip to the skyscraper zoo (there are giraffes!) before testing their knowledge of limited edition video game consoles in Fact or Fiction (Console Special Editions Edition). What’re the odds that there actually was a Men in Black-branded version of the original PlayStation? Or a Taco Bell Xbox 360, for that matter? Did the Cenobites from Clive Barker’s Hellraiser series help promote a related tie-in console? And was there any series too stupid to get its own edition of the PlayStation 4? Find out by listening to this week’s episode.
