HTC Vive - probably the most well-reviewed virtual reality headset. It typically costs about $600 for the base version. They recently announced a new model as well.

Dragon Quest XI. That game looks gorgeous and I adore Dragon Quest. Hopefully the worldwide release is on all three announced systems.

Octopath Traveler if that comes out in 2018. The demo was great and I really, REALLY liked the two Bravely games. Not sure if that working title should be changed or not, heh.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. If this counts as a JRPG then itís near the top of my list. I love the IGA-style Castlevania games; I miss having them around; and Bloodstained looks like one in all but name.

Breath of Fire IV won the poll, and will have two episodes on the podcast later this year. Thanks everyone for listening and voting!

Hi everyone, it's been a minute. 

Retro Encounter just hit episode 100.  The episode itself is an atypical one, where six panelists play a game to pick a future Retro Encounter episode.  They start at a list of 12 games, and end at a list of four games.  Those final four became a poll, and that poll will become a Retro Encounter playthrough episode in November or December.  Episode 100 is partly playing that elimination game, and partly reminiscing about over two years of Retro Encounter. 

It contains episode spoilers (technically), but the final poll is right here for your voting pleasure.  The poll will last a week, and go on longer if there's a tie. 

In the next two weeks we have a pair of Final Fantasy XII episodes, and in October we continue living in the PS2 era with a pair of Digital Devil Saga episodes.  If you want to give feedback, criticism, or suggestions regarding the Retro Encounter podcast, then message me on the forums or email retro@rpgfan.com.

I live in an area with a thriving Vietnamese communit, so there are an abundance of pho restaurants all around. I couldn't be happier. I get a bowl or a banh mi at least once a week, which can't be good for me but it's goddamn delicious. There are even specialty vegan pho places around!

TL;DR Viet food is pretty good in the D.C. area.

What's odd about DC is that the best restaurants are in the suburbs. DC area also has some excellent Ethopian places to eat.

Underrated food place, Philly's Chinatown.
Can confirm.  There are a lot of good Ethiopian joints near me; some Eritrean ones, too.  Plus eating it in a group is fun, because of the big pancake and side sharing.  Hm, it's been several months since I've had Ethiopian....

My favourite is Destiny which is nobody's favorite but quite excellent.
Somehow, until Xillia 2 blew up Destiny was the bestselling game in the entire series.  Great story and characters, AWFUL gameplay that's clunkier than its Super Famicom predecessor.

The only tales game that I have ever played was Tales of Xillia. I got what I expected from it. Nothing blew me away but I had a decent enough of a time.

I was working while listening so I cant recall if it was said in the last episode but what is the casts best Tales game?
Also thanks for warning me about how bad Tales of Phantasia GBA is. I have that mint in box somewhere and would have opened it someday. Might as well leave boxed.
I don't think "the show" has a favorite Tales Of game, but that's not a bad idea for an episode!  We do have a history of identifying favorite games on this podcast. 

But in general, a lot of people have different favorites.  Mine's probably Vesperia.  A lot of people love Symphonia.  I know Marcos's is Eternia and Alana's is Xillia.  Abyss is really really good, and I've heard the latest one (Berseria) is way better than the others of the 2010s.  So yeah, not an easy question.  Definitely avoid Phantasia GBA.

Vita options include:

Every Persona game in the main series other than 5, plus a few of the spinoffs
Every Ys game except for V and VI (including VIII, later this year)
Every Danganronpa game (including V3, later this year)
Every Zero Escape game
Every Disgaea game up to 5
A large amount of the PSP's catalog (some of which I've already mentioned)
A host of PS1 RPGs, like most of the Square catalog that's on PSN
Mother****ing Powerstone 1 and 2

(Look I really love my Vita and support more people investing in one)

I made a mistake when I tried to upload it on Thursday.  I'll fix it and have it up within an hour or two.
