Hey, it wasn't that long since my last post.
So, last time in my Let's Play Final Fantasy VI, the world went to Hades in a haversack. Miraculously, the crustal ruptures we saw in that exciting end-of-the-world cutscene did not result in Siberia-sized lava outpourings, a planetwide blanket of sulfuric acid fog/rain, or other Permian-Extinction-style armageddon. (Geology porn... bookmark for later!)
Instead, as this is Final Fantasy, Celes awakens in a blasted world that's creepy and sad and fragmented. FFXIII-2 riffed on this trope again 17 years later, and the music from its Dying World fits nicely:
Yeap, it really is that bad.
(On with the playthrough)

(Forget it, LJ, just forget it. This is why I moved to DW. That post is NOT ANY LONGER than many I've written in the past, and I can't help it that you've glutted your site with so much code bloat that you have no room left for content.)
