Tsuyoshi Sekito cranked out some great battle themes in The Last Remnant.  The Gates of Hell was a real thrasher of a song if you want to toss up a good rock & roll boss theme.  

The game might've had its flaws, but that soundtrack was amazing.

mint chocolate chip ice cream is the bee's knees.

Just found out about the podcast recently or rather decided to finally give it a listen. Great podcast!! I was just really angry(not really) that there were no Breath of fire 3 tunes there because there is one particular track that screams Summer!(atleast for me). That would be To a Distant Place(the 2nd world map theme).
I think you guys should definately feature some tunes from Breath of fire 3 in one of the podcasts, I think that game has one of the most awesome soundtracks in any game. Underrated soundtrack for a criminally underrated RPG if you ask me.

I really enjoyed the summer episode and will give podcast number 2 a listen because that one seems really cool. Anyway, also great to see some love for Chrono Cross. I think the hate for that game is really idiotic and kinda dumb, I enjoyed it more than Chrono Trigger(not too much but still) for the simple fact that the game has a much deeper story and I think it took a lot of courage to follow the direction that they did with that game. In terms of soundtrack I think they are on the same degree of quality which is godlike quality but I tend to lean a little bit more the Chrono Cross soundtrack.

By the way, would visual novel songs be eligible to the podcast? I think you guys should totally do a podcast revolving around atmospheric, mysterious and sort of creepy songs. I think 999's soundtrack would fit really well there, especially songs like binary game and septenary game.

You guys should also do a podcast with dramatic and more sad songs, things like "A great warrior" and "sending a dream into the universe" from FF7, "To Zanarkand" from FF10 and "Morphogenetic sorrow" from 999 would fit really well. And of course an episode on Ys music or Falcom music!
Sorry for the long post, anyway great podcast and keep up the awesome work.

They got Bluebird Lamentation in there as a preview track in one of the podcasts, so it's probably fair game.

Speaking of 999's soundtrack, a song on there that I never particularly cared for was the Quietus (Game Over) song.  But!  After playing VLR, the song actually tells a story with the sound effect selection in it, which blew me away.  I don't want to spoil anything,  so I'll let you guys try and figure it out. 

And Stephen, I'm struggling with Wiz 8's difficulty on novice setting, so I guess it's probably right up your ally.  It's a mammoth though, requires a lot of time.  Thanks for the great reply!

Secret of Evermore, just trying to get your butt back to Podunk!

This last episode was great, I liked how you spliced in some music while you were discussing things (e.g. before the Torchlight 2 track).  Also, I prefer the choice of themes for the podcasts instead of game series, as I wasn't very big on the Phantasy Star episodes; just didn't seem to have enough variety.  I thought that for the Legend of Mana selection, the Polpota Harbor theme might've been a better choice than Hometown Domina though, sounds a bit more "Summer-y".  Also, I'm kind of surprised you guys didn't mention Costa del Sol from FF7.  That would've fit in like a glove.

Are any of you playing Wizardry 8 since that's on GOG now?  I about pooped a brick when I saw that news posted on the site, since critics have said it's better than the modern Might and Magic games, and a physical copy of it was really hard to track down.  It's got some good tunes in it if you haven't played it.  I'd recommend the Character Creation and Normal Combat 1 tracks.

Sorry I haven't posted, I really like the show since it's got a good mix of nostalgia and some insight into some of the more obscure games that a lot of people wouldn't hear the music for otherwise.

And Derek, I agree, mint chocolate chip ice cream is the bees' knees, never get sick of that stuff.  Need to remember to pick me up some of that this week.

Ohhhhh the memories of 530 days logged into Vana'diel...

-The level 30 cap Promyvion zones
-Airship battle 6-4
-3+ years of being a member of team Nuke in Dynamis (before the awesome overhaul of Dyna)
-Compliments to the Chef/Royal Ramble battlefields
-Nyzul Isle climb to floor 100
-Limbus, especially Proto-Omega and Proto-Ultima
-The first time I got blacklisted - bad pull in Yhoator Jungle exp party on 28 black mage, so i warped to save exp (when exp loss was a huge deal)

Looking forward to checking it out.  I think it's a very good idea, as I found podcast 16 to be one of my favorites.  Game soundtracks was actually what drew me to the site back around 2001, so I think it's great that the music section is coming to the forefront more on the site.
22  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Podcast Thread on: November 13, 2012, 09:19:05 PM
Yeah man, and I especially like that even after you've gotten the true ending, you rewind back to certain parts of the story to try to make more sense of them (for example, the way the characters react when Junpei tricks them into going through door 3).

Well dude, how could you not like the soundtrack, it's got morphogenetic sorrow in it again!  That is a fantastic song.  The puzzle room music in VLR didn't grab me as much as it did in 999 though.
23  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Podcast Thread on: November 13, 2012, 06:35:02 PM
You gotta let us know what you thought of 999/VLR Stephen, with you being the adventure game buff and all.
24  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Podcast Thread on: September 24, 2012, 07:05:08 PM
Really liked the little interludes of how y'all got into gaming. I was actually going to bring that up in my next e-mail to you guys, but apparently you read my mind!

Stephen!  I'm with you 100% on those short stories in Lost Odyssey being the best part.  When I first got through the game, I'd always play the "Return of the Native" one for friends that came over and hadn't seen the game, that one was a tearjerker for me.  The main game annoyed me though because of Mack and Cooke...geez those little twerps turned a badass character into just a worried grandparent for the majority of the game.

And dang, you guys got me all excited when you mentioned final fantasy xi, thought you were going to talk about it but then i realized you were just picking on Derek.  Can't wait for Seekers of Aldouin!

John, that pic made me laugh my butt off!

It looks like he's being slugged in the face by an invisible hand (insert Adam Smith economics joke here)

I did it on black mage, still remember that I almost died but stunned waterga III at the very last second to save my butt.  I'm just glad I didn't level corsair first... my best friend must have tried that fight 15 times.  It aggravated him so much it made him quit.

By the way, does anybody on here play on Bismarck?  My character name's Alhizzy if any of you want to friend me.

I'm not so much a fan of the summer olympics, although I'd really like to watch me some ping-pong, frickin love ping-pong.

Watching:
-NHL hockey is my #1, but I typically only watch Florida Panthers games (if they're on) during the regular season.  Always love some Stanley Cup Playoff action though no matter what the teams are.
-College & NFL football - Bowling Green & Ohio State, Cleveland Browns
-Sometimes baseball, but only the Cleveland Indians
-Anything in the winter olympics, even curling

Playing:
-Anything with a racquet or paddle (tennis, badminton, racquetball, ping-pong)
-Golf
-Used to play hockey when I was in college, but now I have trouble ice skating, which is depressing because I absolutely loved it even though I wasn't very good
-Sometimes basketball

I think the one I'd brag about the most is Tomb Raider 2.  I think I could still manage to find most of the secret statue thingies in it if I picked it up and played it again.

And Raziel, Soul Reaver was a puzzling mess for me the one time I played through it, so mad props to you on that one!  The playstation sure did have some quality action adventure games.

Hey guys, thanks for responding to my questions, really enjoyed the discussions.

Well, not all parents love their children. The boy who I lived next to growing up had a bitch of a mother, ignored him, hit him, kept him outside until well after dark. My mum looked after him a lot, but I guess she was scared to report the abuse due to the family being an Irish gangster family. She was always saying stuff like "What did the little cunt do now?".

He's in jail now, broke into an old ladies house and robbed and assaulted her.

This statement reminds me of the contents of the last Zeitgeist movie, Moving Forward, where the scientists interviewed were indicating that the most common driver of violence in people is being abused as a child.  Not video games, TV, movies, or music.

And Star, your last comment of "Nationalism, ho!" is funny because I'm actually playing Recettear right now.  Thank you summer Steam sale!
