Episode 38 is finally up!  Sorry it took so long, gang.

Thanks for the kind words, Perigryn.  I always struggle to make sure that the language of my review matches up with the score, and it's a fairly difficult thing to do at times.  Hyperbole in game reviews drives me nuts, though I know I can be an offender in this area at times.  Certainly something for me to work on.

i just finished listening to this jurassic hour and i really liked the end where john and micheal talk about the p.r. issues and review scores. i found that really interesting being the layman. it's really easy to take you guys for granted dealing with the bullshit. i just wanna say thanks for posting to a show i wouldn't have normally listened to. and thanks to john in general cause it sounds rather thankless and i really appreciate this site. i would like to add that i like the way the review scores work on the site that's why i was drawn to the site from the beginning. the reviews i've read seem very fair.

i'm excited to listen to the year end wrap up show, hope it's up soon.

It's always good to hear that your work is appreciated, though what I do is only a small portion of the site as a whole.  I'm lucky to have a devoted, talented staff that works with me.

Oh, we're all guilty, no doubt! When people get really excited about a title, we just do it. Especially when we're loyal to it, we want everyone to think it is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

At any rate, no problem! Looking forward to listening in on Ep. 38!
Just Greg, thanks.

Ahhh, sure was nice getting that podcast fix today.  You all have made me an addict i swear.

I have a request for Rob!  I was going through XBox Live's indie rpgs the other day and came across a game called Evilquest for 1 dollar, so I decided to try it out.  It plays a lot like Crystalis, but... you play the game as Rob Steinman.  I'd like to see Rob do an Indie review of that with a sort of first person review perspective.  Would be entertaining as heck!

Sounds fun, but I actually don't have a 360!

No worries, Chaosoft has stated they're at least getting it to Steam, and are also looking at iOS platforms.

Oh... and I was just going to throw a crazy prediction out there for this year, Konami announces Suikoden VI for Playstation Vita.  That would be badass.

Unfortunately, Lard, the Shadow Hearts podcast is looking like it's a ways off.  We are heading into a very heavy time for RPGs, and our biweekly schedule leaves very little time for us to get a retrospective in during the first part of the year.  I imagine we'll be able to talk about Shadow Hearts towards the end of March or beginning of April.  Sorry for the long delay, but I promise it'll be worth it!

Just so everyone knows in advance, if Rob doesn't like it I'm probably going to destroy him utterly. So if the podcast suddenly drops off, you'll know why.

I played Koudelka after beating Shadow Hearts 1 and 2. What did you think of it?

(If nothing else, it has awesome music.)

I could never get into Koudelka, what with it's frustrating battle system and (at least a perceived) lack of balance. I did also love the music though. I remember reading about Koudelka before it got released in the USA, being interested but then forgetting about it, and then reading about and subsequently playing SH and being blown away that they were connected!

Speaking of themed podcasts, did you guys ever do a Nier podcast? I want a Nier podcast!

It really is cool how many RPGs (and a visual novel) are coming out in February (or January 31):

FFXIII-2
Amalur
Devil Survivor 2
Hakuoki
Tales of the Abyss 3DS

I'm honestly impressed at the glut of post-holiday games that I want.
