Glad you're loving the show, Wendriel.  We have some really cool stuff planned for the next month, including episodes devoted to female characters in games and The Witcher 2.  Stay tuned!

*sigh*  Didn't even realize how bad that sounded at the time.  At least people care enough to listen and call me on my bullshit.

I would say The Tower of Latria (world 3) and the Valley of Defilement (world 5) were easily the most intense and scary environments.  They felt very dream like. Everything just felt cold, dark, and unnatural.  They were areas that I wanted to get through as quickly as possible because they made me uncomfortable.  I think that shows how effective the game was at getting into my head and scaring the living shit out of me.

Ah, fair enough.  Indeed, I would say I suck at The Witcher.  Admittedly I was only playing the game for the story in anticipation for the sequel.  It's funny how sometimes you just suck at a game, ya know?  I'm awful at the original Deus Ex, but I would consider myself pretty good at Demon's Souls.

Great points, everyone!  I (finally) finished The Witcher last night, and I would love to play through again to see the different choices I could make.  The game does a great job of spacing out decisions and alliance building in order to substantiate the long playtime.  Unfortunately, I found the game itself to be fairly devoid of fun.  The battle system is a joke, and the game does a real crap job of guiding you through weapon upgrades, skill progression, and questing.  The number of side quests is truly staggering, but the game doesn't give you a whole lot of information on how to complete them.  I doubt I'll ever play the game again because of how obnoxious it can be.  The real draw of the game is the story, and it will be interesting to see what improvements CD make in the sequel. 

Also, we'll be recording a podcast with Kyle Miller giving us his impressions of The Witcher 2 based on a preview build.  Look forward to it!

RDR was easily my favorite game of last year.  Such an incredible experience.  Don't worry too much about cattle herding, as you only do it a few times over the course of the whole game.  

I'm going to try my best to finish The Witcher this week so I can safely play the next game.  I love the storytelling and moral dilemmas, but I can't stand the combat system.  Looks like the more action-oriented approach in the sequel will be right up my alley.  Other than that, I'm reading A Song of Ice and Fire for the first time, and I adore it!  Seriously, those looking for fantasy with a harder edge and more political intrigue will love this series.  I'm midway through the second book and I haven't been this enthralled with a world and its inhabitants in a long time.  I honestly care about these characters, and that is extremely rare for me.

Almost through these videos, and I can't stand the two guys who made it (three if you count the odd looking beard guy).  I love how they say that the underwhelming combat and wonky controls from the first few games in the series are better than anything else done to date.  They use the argument "those are the controls, so get used to them" to defend the franchise's shortcomings.  I'm a huge Silent Hill fan, but I refuse to defend poor design choices.  That said, the retrospective has some decent production values and you can tell these guys are fans.  There's also a good deal of information hidden within the subjective analysis.  

Also, they say that 3 is the best game in the series.  Totally disagree with them on that one.

Edit-
Just finished the whole thing, and I stand by my original statements.  These guys are clearly in love with certain aspects of the first few games, and they would rather see the series die than expand and develop.  Don't get me wrong, the past few games haven't been so hot, but that doesn't mean we should throwout the baby with the bathwater.  Also, I've never been a fan of the whole cult angle so heavily prevalent in 1 and 3.  I find the personal hell of SH2 to be far more intriguing and disturbing than crazy dudes trying to summon an evil god.  I hope the next game follows a similar storyline but shies away from the "main character can't remember what bad thing he/she did" plot line.

John showed me a Penny-Arcade comic making fun of KH2.  I took the screen from that.  Enjoy!

It was about an hour.  We rerecorded the show last night with a better focus on discussion topics.  Should be up sometime in the near future!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but we lost our latest podcast recording.  Not sure what exactly happened, but it seems our software failed us.  We'll try to record again sometime this week.  Sorry guys!
