Do either of the Bravely Default games ever mention what the hell PG is supposed to be short for, anyway? Why do these RPGs keep thinking they all need their own fictional currency?

Nice show, still have 45 minutes left to go. Question whose else hands or fingers hurt when holding a hand-held system? I think the worse was the PSP. The Vita probably would of been worse however I hardly play on the Vita and I prefer to play on the VitaTV because I can use a controller. The 3DS is ok but because of the weight one or two of my fingers tends to take on the weight.

The PSP's analog nub is one of the most uncomfortable mechanisms I've ever had the displeasure of manipulating. That's the only real discomfort that comes to mind for me, though. I'm always on my 3DS or Vita with no problems.

Lately when people complain about being uncomfortable when holding a handheld system I ask how they tend to hold it and it's usually that they're holding the system above chest level. Even if you're playing while lying down you should prop yourself up so that you can hold the system below chest level. Good circulation means less discomfort.

That being said, there still are some handhelds that can just be uncomfortable no matter what depending on the holders' physique.

A note: I talked about Severed in the most recent episode, and I was incorrect when I said you graft enemy limbs onto your arm. Now that I've completed it, I know that you only graft one thing onto your arm, and it's not an enemy limb. You do cut off pieces of your enemies and wear them elsewhere on your body, though. I apologize for my mistake!

(By the way, Severed is a super easy game to Platinum-- it only took me about 6-7 hours, tops.)

I'm at the beginning of podcast 110.. and I'm a monthly listener.  I download the file and use winamp so I can work on stuff and have rpg talk in the background.... but I gotta ask you guys:

How are you not using Discord yet?  It uses twitch if you wanna sign-in automatically, or other sign-ins so you don't have to sign up.  It uses a BROWSER window like skype can -- or optional program too.  Although its used as a chatroom, people are starting to use it for its voice chatting.  You can control others' volumes with it!

RPGFan should get a discord channel called "Rpgfan" simply, then the entire community can chill in there.  Ive attached my own discord channel because im a twitch streamer (twitch.tv/borg1982).

When you load discord in browser or app, your name is automatically inside EVERY server/channel you were invited to.

To be honest, and I am not speaking for the random encounter guys but Discord has terrible sound quality.  Mostly because I have been using TeamSpeak 3 and Mumble for years now, Discord has nothing on those two for recording and sound quality.  Even Skype (and I dislike skype) sounds better then discord.  When I have to use Discord it feels Like I am using TeamSpeak 2 or Vent again.

Discord is free though and might be a good idea for people to chill in and talk on a normal basis.  Might be something for us to think about so thank you for the suggestion.

BTW Rob I am not done with the whole show yet but so far this sounds much better.

Yeah the show sounds great right now.  I cant tell a diff at all.

If its true that discord has worse quality, then trying those other programs might be better.

But using discord as a RPGFan chill place would be something id goto immediately.  We can chat about rpgs all day -- even 24/7 on our cellphones if we're on a work break :)

Gotta be honest, I get lonely enough at times that I wouldn't mind it. Though the unofficial RPGFan chatroom used for the weekly quizzes is usually pretty dead when there wasn't something planned. So who knows if it would really be worth it or not.

Yeah it's some food for thought.  In the meantime though there is always twitch chat on Monday nights and Wednesday afternoons(I know Sunday's are early) to chill and talk about anything RPG related.  On Monday nights I'll talk just about anything going on in the world of RPGs or gaming doesn't have to be about the game I am streaming.   Also RPGFanBot right now only does a simple betting game, but I can set him up to do trivia on some nights if people wanted.  But I warn you the trivia will not be easy. :P

I'll probably be joining in on Mondays now that P4 is over (nothing against the game, I had just recently replayed it and can't really sit through the same game twice in a row)

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

I'd be into a twitch chat once I actually get around to learning how to use twitch.  it's certainly a better use of my time than arguing about politics on facebook...
