Episode 135: Bravely Default

bravely-default-3242342.jpg

Now that all of the Athletes own a 3DS, it makes it much easier to cover our bases when it comes to new releases on the handheld.  Bravely Default is a game that would have been covered even if only one of us had played it, as it targets fans of the older Final Fantasy games.  It blends the old school feel of turn based combat and excellent Final Fantasy-esque job system, with more modern amenities like auto saves, great graphics, and street pass integration; throw in the Brave and Default system to add another level of strategy to combat, and you have the makings of a great RPG.
