It's actually John's kind way of telling me that he doesn't like the podcast and wishes we never started it. 

Either that or he was busy.

lol thank you, sirs.

i listened yesterday at work.  i'm not one for mmo's either so i thought it was a very good praise of guild wars 2 that you liked it. is it free to play? i can't remember. i'm also really behind on the jrpg front. i just got digital devil saga 2, i liked the first one more than nocturne. i think it's cause the story kept me more engaged and really the story in nocturne is pretty sparse. i think nocturne is a little more difficult in the sense of combat. in dds it's a little easier to pick up on strategy cues.

Guild Wars 2 will be free to play, though they will have micro-transactions.  Should be interesting to see how it plays out.

I want to play either DDS or Nocturne when I need a (slight) break from Diablo 3.  I played a little DDS over a year ago, but it just didn't grab me.  I think I was distracted by my new job and all of that.  I'm really not sure which one to try first.  Any suggestions from our listeners?

Both are fantastic. Both have awesome combat and really compelling character progression. The games reward careful play and use of strategy. I prefer the story in DDS1-2 because of its greater focus on your player characters. But again, both awesome.

Robbie, please. Stop the graphics whoring.

We get enough of that kind of crap on regular gaming podcasts.

Are you referring to my Nocturne comments, Lard?  I have no problem with playing old games, especially if they have a solid art design.  I was just saying that playing a standard def game on a large hi def screen can be painful on the eyes.  Even a minor bump to 480p can make all the difference (just look at Xenoblade with component cables).

It wasn't that specifically. I'm aware that PS2 games are going to look crap on an HD tv.
Just the endless talk of how 1080p/60fps stuff looks so good and how games need to live up to this standard blablabla
Also, I agree. You need to stick with Nocturne. You haven't given it enough of a chance yet.
And start Shadow Hearts once you're done Nocturne.

HAHA!  I've actually been playing a ton of Nocturne and liking it quite a bit.  I have three or four dungeons left, so I want to beat it here in the next week or so.

I don't mean to come across like a graphics whore, but 60 fps is really important to me as a player.  It just makes for a smoother experience overall.  I played through Max Payne 3 on my PC, and it was extremely different from the console version because of the mouse control and the amazing framerate.

I am in full support of a future discussion on video games with good writing.

Also, good episode. Kind of interesting listening to the Versus XIII segment now that the rumor was debunked.

I think it is worth a followup discussion for sure. Thanks for your comment!
