I'm really pleased to hear that, Marshmallow. Thank you for listening and for taking the time to write here on the forums. I think we've all said it a zillion times by now, but we do this purely out of love for games, so it means a lot that you're able to get something out of our discussions. :)

The guest on the most recent episode was a pleasant surprise and yall should bring him back more often!

Also I appreciated Derek's rant about minions and rabbids being hot trash.  I'm glad I'm not the only person that finds both characters so contemptible.

T H A N K. Y O U. Minions make me want to die. Of course, announcing my hatred has only pushed my friends into sending me all kinds of minion shit just to get a rise out of me. I can't win, lol.

We'll try to get him back on the show soon! :]

My apologies, then. Tone is always hard to interpret via text. :) Persona 5 is amaaaazing, though. I'm trying to decide which DLC pack I want to buy for my second playthrough...probably the Catherine one, once it's out!

Spend a few minutes talking about how good Persona 5 is.
Spend the rest of the hour talking about how it's terrible and needs to burned alive.


Nobody said that. You're misrepresenting the discussion.

Oh, for #2. I forgot this was not specifically for the 2nd game. I just don't want to have to spend over a year waiting for the "next episode" or whatever. After all, a third Cold Steel game was announced, but we don't exactly have any idea if it'll come over to the states. Granted, I haven't played the first one yet, but that LE box has room for two...

Definitely not a cliffhanger in 2 in terms of Class VII's story, but there is definitely more in store for Erebonia.

The slowdown is noticeable, but it's not enough to make the game unplayable by any means. I do feel like CSII runs a bit worse than CSI on Vita, though. It's prone to having many more characters on-screen at once and the engine rather obviously taxes the Vita's CPU.

Don't let that stop you from getting the Vita version if portability is paramount for you-- it's the same great game, after all! :)

You're right, Arvis, I totally missed the Tactics link! As an update, I finished running through the dungeon and got my reward (a shiny book for my Summoner) in about a week of playing casually, so it's not a huge timesink. Pretty cool concept-- I hope they expand upon it thoughtfully in the future.

And yeah, we need to get Dice to talk more! I think we're too used to jumping in and piggybacking off of each other. She's too polite to talk over us, haha.

Finished this up today.  Derek gave it the right score it's a solid 8.  Nothing more nothing less. It's a solid game but has some flaws to it that could be refined in a successor to it(not necessarily a sequel).  The ending would have been so much better if the game was longer and the narrative was written better.

Thank you, thank you, I'll be here writing reviews all week.

I could definitely see a successor being much better. Focus more on the writing, replace Sprinite with something interesting, switch up the environments, and boom.

"I got wrecked at and all I got was this lousy sign!"

(Ha, I hope this means you didn't hate the review, at least!)

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.)

We're gonna miss you, Stephen. :'( T'was a great episode! And I love where you cut it off at the last second, haha.

RE: Transistor (and Bastion), I dug both games, but I was not compelled to start a second run of Transistor when I beat it, whereas Bastion I restarted right away to get the other ending... so figure that one out, I guess. I agree with Rob's point about finding the "win" button in Transistor's combat, though- I like the idea of it, but what ended up happening was I just slotted the ability that left a trail of mines into my dash and just dodged everything while stuff blew up around me. Effective, but never felt compelled to stop doing that.

Excited for Pyre, though.

Also, Derek, a Bravely Second conversation with no mention of Chompcraft? For shame. :P

My Chompcraft empire extends far beyond the eye can see. My plushies are as soft as my reign is uncontested. Every man, woman, and child in Luxendarc knows my name.

With regard to the discussion of Supergiant games on the most recent episode: I found Transistor to be much, much more compelling than Bastion, although I enjoyed both games.  I didn't find the talkative sword to be at all annoying or hipstery, and really I just got very drawn into the world.  It didn't seem like anybody on the podcast really shared my enthusiasm for the game, but I binged it over two days, and when I beat it it left me feeling that melancholy you feel when you finish a really good book.

Also, you guys should totally do something at Magfest, because I'm seriously considering going to the next one that happens, so you'd have at least one panel attendee!

Lastly, goodbye Stephen! Good luck in future things!

I totally get where you're coming from-- I liked Transistor more than I liked Bastion, as its overall audiovisual style was more to my taste. I bought it on release day and powered through about 2/3 of it all at once, and then didn't pick it up again until I completed it over a year later. I think there's a great game somewhere in Transistor, but I wanted a little more context for everything that was happening in its world. Pyre looks sweet, though!
