Kingdom Hearts III is suppose to happen after Versus XIII is finished. I can't imagine them making KH III in less than 2 or 4 year though... that said, some people in neogaf have said before that they can see Versus being released in 2014 to give "XIII-3" next year to be the center of attention.

Nobody knows if XIII-3 if even a thing, not yet anyway.

You guys are trolls for speaking condescendingly about P4Arena since its not an RPG, even though you cover visual novels!

Realm of coverage!

Kidding aside, good show.  Only criticism I'd have is that John and Rob fight like mommy and daddy used to... still love ya!

I think John will fire me at some point and replace me with some kind of robot that agrees with him on everything.

Nah, I can't tell that robot he's wrong all the time.

I really enjoyed episode 49! Thanks for making my day less crappy!

One quick note: the topic of Panzer Dragoon Saga came up. I believe the reason why this has not been ported to anything is that, according to Wikipedia (quoting Team leader Yukio Futatsugi) the source code has been lost. Therefore, Sega would have to rewrite the whole code to get this thing working again. Even though they would sell copies of that to any hard core RPG player that are hitting themselves for missing out on it originally (I am one of those people), I do not know if it would be enough to make their money back. Then again, I'm no economist, so who knows...

As a developer though, I can say that losing your source code is a very, very stupid thing to do.

I think back in the day developers were a lot more cavalier with their code. At this point, rebuilding the game to work on modern consoles might be more hassle than just remaking it. Or they could just emulate the damn thing-- oh wait, SATURN.

PaleRobbie, this isn't meant personally in any way, but you are 100% dead wrong.

Fuck microtransactions. Not every game content chopped up and sold to us separately. It's like the gaming industry has been co-opted by the advertising industry. Buy our game! Great with map packs! Less filling with extra weapons!

Just make a game that people enjoy and is fun to play and they will come back to it.

I don't really like microtransactions either, but the sales figures don't lie. It is a model that works if the objective is to make money, and the objective is usually to make money.

Regarding the EA lawsuit, I think the main issue isn't that EA copied basic mechanics, it's that they copied the basic template of the game right down to the look. I don't think they'd be including screenshots in their filing if it were otherwise.
There's not going to be some nightmare scenario where companies are suing each other for pressing a button to swing a sword or anything like that.
And somebody made a comment about dual analog sticks in FPSes, for Halo for. EA could probably sue for that too, since they were implementing that in the Medal of Honour games long before Halo was out.

I don't think EA will win against Zynga, but if they do there definitely will be a pile of "me too" lawsuits to sort out just where the line is now for infringement. Probably not the nightmare scenario of "swing a sword", I agree - but there would definitely be some dumb ones as everybody tried to get a piece. EA themselves would probably end up on the receiving end of quite a few.

Really liked the little interludes of how y'all got into gaming. I was actually going to bring that up in my next e-mail to you guys, but apparently you read my mind!

Stephen!  I'm with you 100% on those short stories in Lost Odyssey being the best part.  When I first got through the game, I'd always play the "Return of the Native" one for friends that came over and hadn't seen the game, that one was a tearjerker for me.  The main game annoyed me though because of Mack and Cooke...geez those little twerps turned a badass character into just a worried grandparent for the majority of the game.

And dang, you guys got me all excited when you mentioned final fantasy xi, thought you were going to talk about it but then i realized you were just picking on Derek.  Can't wait for Seekers of Aldouin!
