Yeah the show sounds great right now.  I cant tell a diff at all.

If its true that discord has worse quality, then trying those other programs might be better.

But using discord as a RPGFan chill place would be something id goto immediately.  We can chat about rpgs all day -- even 24/7 on our cellphones if we're on a work break :)

I'm at the beginning of podcast 110.. and I'm a monthly listener.  I download the file and use winamp so I can work on stuff and have rpg talk in the background.... but I gotta ask you guys:

How are you not using Discord yet?  It uses twitch if you wanna sign-in automatically, or other sign-ins so you don't have to sign up.  It uses a BROWSER window like skype can -- or optional program too.  Although its used as a chatroom, people are starting to use it for its voice chatting.  You can control others' volumes with it!

RPGFan should get a discord channel called "Rpgfan" simply, then the entire community can chill in there.  Ive attached my own discord channel because im a twitch streamer (twitch.tv/borg1982).

When you load discord in browser or app, your name is automatically inside EVERY server/channel you were invited to.

I'm on the Paper Jam part of the cast now and I had to come here to defend Sticker Star.  Its true that its a bad excuse for an RPG, as you cant even level up or anything, but judging it on its own merits as a unique game with a new core idea, its fun.  I loved hording the most-glowing / colored stickers to save them for bosses.

I'd still give the game a 7.0 "OKAY", but its definitely not a 8.0 "Must-Play" or higher or even 7.5 "Solid".

Havent tried Paper Jam yet.

I'm about half done with 104 now.  That Darkest Dungeon game is hard to understand when I'm watching a streamer play it and go too fast.  lol

Might have to see a slow letsplay, but the podcast helped make some stuff clear.

I listened to the podcast with Bloodborne & Type 0 talk... I gotta say I basically agree in every way about Type 0:

I feel like the game is a terrible RPG but a good action game.  Unfortunately I'm not a huge action game player, so I gave the game a 6.75/10.  It would have gotten lower but the final chapter was really fun.  Even the story after the final boss was the best moment!

But upon further reflection I fully agree:
-Terrible sidequests, so I ignored 95% of them.
-Bad voice acting
-Terrible academy town traversing
-Kinda boring chocobo system
-Having to get sightkills just to have new options for equipment (hundreds of them PER person)
-Not many total missions really at all
-Not a fan of the Eidolon system

I guess I could go on for a while... but the reason why its not lower than 6 is because it was thrilling enough to just play and kill shit... lol

Indeed.  He needs to play 8.  This series turned modern RPGs into what they are in the first place.  I tend to believe they are the best RPG gameplay experiences you can get.  The adventure you go on going thru dungeons, collecting items, trying to survive and making it thru.  Exploring the world often with a ship and flying device, too.  It set the standard.  It feels like other series just do 1 or 2 things really well and have flashy new ideas but are just terrible in other areas.  DQ is consistently solid.

Hey all, I'm listening to the newest podcast (#69) and I pay for FF14 as well.

I actually livestream it at my page www.twitch.tv/borg1982  [if you check past broadcasts you can see highlight videos].
I am by no means an MMO veteran, in fact I never liked a single one before FF14.

Even though I'm only a half-hour into the podcast, I was wondering if you guys use TWITCH.tv as well, to live stream what you do.  It's the sickest website ever, and I think it makes gaming even more addicting.

I'm at the end of the Rhythm Encounter #2 and I really enjoyed hearing the main theme/overworld themes I already knew I loved, in order of my favorite:

1. FF7
2. DQ8
3. FF9
4. FF6
5. CT
6. CC
7. Golden Sun

Many of the rest of them were my first-listens and they sound like great picks.

The Golden Sun 2 Sakuraba pick motivated me to come here and give you all my favorite map song of all time, and as well, my favorite video game piece of all time:

This week, I enjoyed the Ninokuni talk, and I'm kind of curious about it and might play it after I max out FF: Dimensions on my Note 2...

but I severely disliked hearing the phrase Diablo 3 again.  As for a game I absolutely enjoyed and gave like a 89%: Xenoblade was something I was hoping to not really hear in the p.c. because I'd rather avoid going back to stuff that was discussed a lot already.

I'm definitely not "the internet" but I sure didn't like Diablo 3 at all for many reasons - none of which have to do with errors.

Going back to that terrible May of 2012, when I shortly realized it was the biggest disappointment of waiting 11 years for a game, I just didn't like how it boiled down to being a Auction House based game, where all power comes from that.  Not to mention, its a money-suck for Blizzard to make money off fake video game 'items'.

This is to all the guys who do the podcast.  (And also my first post in ages):

Very favorable review of podcast 55.  I've been listening to all of them for the last year at work and it helps me get thru the day easier.  #55 is an excellent overall review of 2012's RPGs.  Fully agreed with Guild wars 2, Diablo 2 comments, also agree with all the negative comments regarding Diablo 3.  I voted for Xenoblade as my favorite game of the year as well.

Keep it going, guys.
15  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What one RPG would you award 100% to? on: March 28, 2012, 01:19:57 AM
Easy answer for me... I've been saying it for decades.

It's Final Fantasy IV (any version, really).

- An ATB battle system that forces you to act fairly quickly, giving the feeling of danger.
- A totally balanced party of fighting, white & black magic, and other skills. (Well-rounded)
- The first, best storyline that I've ever seen in a game, that moved me 21 years ago..
- Interesting aspects that gives the game flavor such as different airships and the hovercraft, three total surfaces to explore, etc.

It's no wonder why it was remade so many times.
