Hey! Good to hear from you, Ivalice Alliance! :) You can write to us at podcast(at)RPGFan(dot)com.

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 RPGFan.com 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!

Thank you for the thoughtful commentary, Arvis! Always glad to hear that somebody is enjoying the show. :)

Yeah, we're frustrated by the weird volume levels in this episode too. It's not normally an issue, and we'll be looking into a new recording solution for the next episode and beyond.

Just pretend like you're playing Bloodborne and that's the sound of a werewolf breathing down your neck.

Fuck no I'm not gonna make like a Frenchman and give up on the game. I want to beat it and tell the world how shitty it actually is despite your obvious delusion that it's somehow "rewarding" and a "masterpiece." You cultists are all the same. It fucking sickens me that fantards like you engage in journalistic fellatio and actually reward developers for defecating feces such as Dark Souls while bitching and moaning about games being easy. I fucking know I'm not alone in my opinions. You are the fucking cancer ruining game journalism. I actually wrote a civil critical review on the original Demon's Souls and had it posted on Amazon, and you know what happened? All the rabid fantards bitched and moaned about my opinion and tried to hurt my Amazon reviewer score by somehow idiotically voting that my review was "not helpful," which ultimately led me to pull down my review to salvage my ranking.

I don't like Dark Souls at all-- I've been quite critical of it on our podcast-- but I can also acknowledge its strengths and accept that other people enjoy the game.

That said, consider this an official warning about your behavior. Several people have popped into this thread with friendly advice (which you solicited), and you are responding with vitriol. It has no place in our community. Take a step back and breathe.

My notifications to this thread are clearly borked, because there are way more responses than when I last checked.

Annubis, I legitimately laughed at those clips you cut. I'm... touched! And a little embarrassed. ;) I'll endeavor to say more borderline stupid things that are worthy of your attention.

I haven't seen more than a single episode of Firelfly, so I'm staying out of that argument. I know Mike Salbato would have stepped up to defend its honor, had he been there.

Hi Kristina! Thank you so much for listening to the show, and kudos to your clearly excellent taste. ;D

Regarding the weird text for Life Tasks in Shallie, I honestly think that's a bug/localization error. I also encountered instances where I'd get progress on my task bar for, say, "Swing 100x" even though it was clearly going up whenever I jumped. It's kind of confusing, but like you said, you can usually check what the actual task is by going into the menu and pressing square to see a detailed rundown of any given objective. I didn't see that sort of issue pop up too often in my playthrough, so hopefully it doesn't cause you too much more trouble!

Incidentally, who did you pick as your heroine? I went with Shallotte. Y'know, if you're in Shallistera's story, that may actually explain why you've seen more weird Life Task errors, assuming they occur more frequently on her side. I just penned my review of the game this afternoon, so it should be up on the main site in the next couple of days. (Spoiler: I really liked it.)

Thanks for your feedback, by the way. I'll pass it along to Rob as well (although I'm sure he'll see the thread). And welcome to the boards!

I love good video games on any platform they're available. (*'-')b I don't know why this is a debate.
