Okay.
I don't use itunes and there's no link for a direct download of the MP3. Can you guys make one please? It would be helpful, because I can *never* find the podcasts.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

I'll work on seeing if we can't just parse the RSS XML onto a standard page.

Thanks.

When I click the link Annubis posted, it just says Media Player can't play the file. Is there a way to configure it, because I have no idea how.

What browser do you use? It sounds like it's either your browser sending .xml to Media Player or Media Player who is associated to xml.
The former is probably more plausible since Media Player can't do shit with .xml

For the record:

Xenogears: A tremendous achievement of storytelling that (much like Eva) ran out of funding and time, resulting in half of an awesome game and half of something... else...

Kingdom Hearts:  I loved the first game because it was you and Donald Duck on a magical adventure.  KH2 had some great gameplay and awesome set-piece moments, but it felt like the series got away from the core roots that made it so whimsical and fun.  As of late, the series has been milked and processed to the point of complete garbage, and I'm not even sure if a third core entry could right the ship.

TWEWY:  That shit is awful.  Seriously, though, the gameplay just baffled me and I had no interest in the main character. 

Xenogears: I had no problem with the second disc, as a whole the game was great from start to finish(though I do agree the sewer portion was a little lame), the only thing that pissed me off was that the game ended as Episode 5. While Xenosaga did come out and was overall a good somewhat successor(it had a lame ep 2), it still didn't completely encompass the greatness of the first game.  So unfortunately due to all the licensing and sales, I have to reluctantly refer to Xenogears Perfect Works, have you heard about/read that?

Kingdom Hearts: I think maybe I just like Nomura's style, but I found KH 1/2 to be highly enjoyable.  Birth by sleep as well.  Coded, 358/2, and Chain of Memories were all pretty bad though.  The story did go over the top, but I still enjoyed it. I think when they finally do get to number III, it might end up being alright.  I think they just need to make III then end it with possibly wrapping up every single mystery they have, even if they have to retcon, but there should be a definitive ending. If they make any more it should be a blank slate, and possibly use the disney characters and use their worlds to make original stories(which could go horribly horribly wrong...)

TWEWY: This is by far my favorite DS game, maybe it is the XL you played it on(I played it on lite), but I had absolutely no problems with the combat system.  I found it rather engaging to go back and forth and it kept me in battles more than most other RPG battle system. It's basically I had to pay attention or I would die.  The setting of the game was great, I'll admit Neku was a little whiny at the beginning but after seeing what is really going on and after all the plot twists, it was rather a unique and amazing story that isn't really seen that much.

Firefox

Tools -> Options -> Applications -> try putting "Podcast" and "Webfeed" to "preview in Firefox". Should be one of those two. At worst check for things currently sent to Media Player.

Ahh phantasy star ....
a very nostalgic podcast.... for me at least

sadly my first phantasy star was 4...and now i really can't go back to play 2 or 3.....4 is simply that much better...

on a sidenote Steven ...you scare me... :p (naah not really.... when  i think about your phantasy star "expertise" it reminds me of myself and the first two shining force games on sega)


ps: thank you very much for the podcasts... overall keep up the good work... should you run out of recent news to talk about once again... you can always talk about 90s rpgs ... maybe something not as famous as final fantasy or chrono trigger ... simply great rpgs from "back then".

Indeed he is. Also, John, you're making me want to reinstall New Vegas that I haven't played at all just to try that DLC.
Friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn't matter, but work is third.

Dammit. I want to listen, but I want to sit down sometime over the next year and play PS 1-4 on my Sega collection, so I don't want to listen to the spoilers.
