Yeah, I'm very happy with the new changes. Combat's a lot tighter. The camera still has a lot of issues in the Behemoth den, and tracking on some techniques is a bit rough, but overall it's way tighter and more fun.

Basically at this point, my biggest concern is that the quest design is abysmal. "Run way the heck over here with Gladio for a tutorial." "Go pick up a random piece of junk because you saw a roadsign complete with generic voice clips from the team."

I haven't done the other tours yet, but based on the random quests when traveling, the amount of "Go to [Location] with [Party Member] and hit X to fight [enemy]" is incredibly worrying. I hope it's just a demo thing, because right now it feels abhorrently menial. It's basically a walking/hitting groups of enemies simulator. Maybe I'm spoiled by Witcher 3's questing and exploration, but there needs to be a lot more of interest in this world. Fingers crossed.

Why are people saying Luna doesn't look interesting? Unless I'm mistaken, we've seen about 10 seconds of her :-\

agreed

New episode live! We chatted with HyperDuck SoundWorks, and played music from Penny Arcade 4, Dust, and Cosmic Star Heroine (among others)!

I've had the case where a game's music was BETTER than the actual game for me. This is how I feel about Penny Arcade 4, Glory of Heracles, and a whole host of other games. So often I'll be in love with the music and then be totally underwhelmed by the game, even when I really want to love it.

In the case of Radiant Historia, I really liked the music, then the game made me absolutely adore it.

Taelus, thought you would appreciate this: http://imgur.com/L9AxcGG

You thought correctly ;)

I would pay large sums for a DLC pack that was all Chrono music.

and thanks, Hades! Those are the best words folks like us can hear! Expanding the awesome listening options of someone like yourself is rad, and I'm happy we could have opened you up to new venues!

On a related note, we'll have an episode up today or tomorrow, and then another coming probably early July (would be sooner, but we're all going to E3!)

Haha, amusingly, we had some emails saying they wanted LESS time between. I think the only time you'll see a really fast turnaround is from a -3 episode to a -1 episode, since we record them at the top and bottom of the month. It'll be at least a week or two before 2-2 comes up, so fear not! This month is E3, so we'll probably have it right before the show starts, then late end of the month for 2-3. We'll try to strike a good balance for everyone.

This already seems more interesting than Zestiria. Intriguing.
53  Media / Game Journals / Re: Retro Encounter Podcast Thread on: June 05, 2015, 11:52:30 PM
Good question. I won't let you down.
54  Media / Game Journals / Re: Retro Encounter Podcast Thread on: June 05, 2015, 11:17:05 PM
I am so glad you made a Spear Grid reference.

KABLAM, AUDIENCE!

http://www.rpgfan.com/news/2015/3282.html

2-1 arrives! Final Fantasy X, hooooo!

I took some feedback and incorporated more music, so please do let me know if you like that. Also, we're going to try to record 2-2 before E3, but severa of us are departing early next week. We'll do our best to get it recorded before then!

I see it differently. The series has been in desperate need of focus, of a person at the top saying "no, we know what we're trying to make, and that doesn't fit anymore." A lack of focus lead to the problems a lot of folks had with XII and XIII. While it might not be what was initially expected, I think the final product will be stronger for the fact that one person, Tabata, is making decisions based on the experience they're envisioning. Will it be good? Who knows, but at least it won't be a mishmash.

I LOVED FINDING PAN

Also yeah I'm always weirded out when I hop over a short railing and take fall damage haha. I guess it's sort of realistic, but man, I'd love for dude to be able to do some dunk jumps.

Oh man, haha, I love crowded theaters. The energy of the audience always gets me pumped.

I agree. It was awesome.

What a strange title for it to have. I'll mark spoilers on the original post.
