Great episode. Can't wait for Dragon Quest IX talk.

Particular stand outs for me was the guy who (nearly) played all three Tales of games on the NDS. Very impressive. It is so refreshing to have someone who is willing to talk about Tales games. Every other podcast I have ever listened to, as soon as the word Tales is name-dropped, they bash on it. But for the people who like these games, what's so good about them? Well we'll never know, because no one talks about it... until this podcast.

Also a question for the staff, what is the ratio of local games played versus imported games? Keep up the good work

I've only played about the first 5 hours of the game before dropping it. It was mainly because I had a lot of difficulty reading the text. I didn't understand how to build my character and a sense of progression was lost to me because the leveling felt too linear (or that I didn't know exactly how my character was being improved).

My other gripe was the combat system. I just could not understand why I am mashing my special attack button 16-20 times in a row and stun-locking my enemies. It felt... like cheating. It felt like there was no strategy to it. I must have been playing it wrong. I don't know.

I do agree with Andrew though on the story. The characters were pretty heart-felt to me. Early in the game you quickly realize that this is serious.

Lastly there is a simplified Chinese translation patch out there somewhere, for those who are that way inclined. Thanks for the review.

I'd prefer shorter episodes but more frequent releases. 60 minutes is a good number imo. A lot of other podcasts I listen to do 2.5 hour episodes then burn out and a new episode doesn't get released in months.

Would be nice to see a 'Podcast' section up on the top banner so that people can click it and check out previous episodes. Otherwise hardly anyone is going to discover them.

I've been wanting to do this for all week now, or ever since I discovered that one of my favourite websites is getting a podcast! I just thought I'd hop in to say a big Thank You to the guys who took the time to record it. Episode 01 and 02 was full of interesting discussion. I particularly liked the segment about major gripes in RPGs.

In the future if you guys could pick and clamp down on one title for in-depth discussion that would be aweeeesome.
Huge thanks.

ps: I am aware that there is another podcast thread. http://www.rpgfan.com/boards/index.php?topic=7626.0 but it seemed misplaced.

Great review, Ramza just wondering according to the people you heard who have played previous entries in the Sakura Wars series, which one did they think was the best?
