- The Venerable Forest / Star Ocean: The Second Story
**"Dias is the most kickass character in the game." Is he, though? In battle, I mean? I feel like Claude and Ashton both outclass him easily in battle. You're right about Leon, though. Useless kid.
I mean, Claude and Ashton may very well be better damage dealers in the long run, but Dias is pretty overpowered when you first meet him (for story purposes). It's kind of a JRPG trope, now that I think about it: you meet a character who wipes the floor with you, but he ends up joining your party, and your main hero ends up outclassing him (because main heroes are special snowflakes in most JRPGs). Dias is still infinitely more badass than either Claude or Ashton, though. I mean just in terms of appearance and his battle voice (particularly in the PS1 version).
I tried Skies of Arcadia once and couldn't get into it, but I really should try again. What's the best format/console to play it on? Could I play it on my Wii U gamepad perchance?
This is a very good question. I know you can play the GameCube version on a Wii with a GameCube controller, but I don't think you can play it on a Wii U.

On this track (not sure which composer did it)...

Awesome episode guys, I'm so grateful for all of your hard work!
And, for the record, although I think I have already posted about it, I enjoy the length of the show very much. I like having many different tracks in each episode. HOWEVER: if shorter shows means more frequent Rhythm Encounters, then I would be in support of that, too.
As it is now, though, each episode feels like a treat, an event. And I love it. As I've said before, of all my podcasts, this is my FAVORITE podcast.
As always, thank you so much for these amazingly kind words. It's so nice to hear from people who have as much fun listening to the show as we have making it! ^__^
