Thanks for defending me, Stephen.

We've talked about FF12 before, and I loved the concept for the game so much.  I just felt like it lacked balance and relied on physical attacks.  Great idea marred by poor execution, imo.

Ahhh, these sure are good "slacking at work" material.  Just listened to the Phantasy Star podcast today and it was music to my ears.  I can't help but think about Shining Force 2 though whenever I hear Phantasy Star IV, since i think they're both pretty much near perfection in RPGs.

If you all ever want to go on a rant about the Shining titles, you would have my undivided attention!  SF2 is still my favorite game of all time, but I love all the games in that series until Sega messed it all up after the departure from the Saturn.

Shining Force 2 was a great game. I've returned to it a couple of times over my vast life of gaming.

and I support the 1h Rob monologue over Vampire.

So Xenoblade is the second coming of Jesus?
Crud...
I can only hope they port it to somewhere Sony-ish or Microsoft-ish (yeah, not getting my hopes up) because I'm not going to buy a console for a single game.
I don't hate Nintendo, but there is really nothing else I want to play on the Wii, and I am not a fan of the wiimote either =/

(also, this episode made me feel special)

I'm listening now, I don't know why I stopped listening but I'm going to catch up on what I missed. Good stuff here.

How spoilery does the Xenoblade discussion get?
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

We stay almost completely away from spoilers.  We definitely don't talk about the point in the game where a furry gets nailed to a cross.

Wait, that might be another Xeno game...

Yeah, I started listening because you guys generally announce when spoilers are coming. I have Xenoblade but I doubt I'm going to have time for it until Xmas because of school.

Also, Pale Robbie -  if you haven't played Shadow Hearts yet, play it. The first one is more horror based than the second or third, so keep that in mind, but I thought the game was really unique.

The battle system takes getting used to, but all three games are genuinely worth playing.

And yes, I want a Shadow Hearts podcast.

Also, Tactics Ogre has been $20 since August. Go get it.

Glad you guys are enjoying the podcast anyway. I don't think I can listen to it as I really don't like the sound of my own voice. :P

Another YES (YES YES) for a Shadow Hearts podcast.
