Looking forward to checking it out.  I think it's a very good idea, as I found podcast 16 to be one of my favorites.  Game soundtracks was actually what drew me to the site back around 2001, so I think it's great that the music section is coming to the forefront more on the site.

I'm very glad to hear it! Music isn't going anywhere, either, so stay tuned ;)

This week, I enjoyed the Ninokuni talk, and I'm kind of curious about it and might play it after I max out FF: Dimensions on my Note 2...

but I severely disliked hearing the phrase Diablo 3 again.  As for a game I absolutely enjoyed and gave like a 89%: Xenoblade was something I was hoping to not really hear in the p.c. because I'd rather avoid going back to stuff that was discussed a lot already.

I agree. I think it's time to move on. I don't think we plan to discuss them as often as we do, they just keep coming up. I appreciate the feedback!

Fair enough.  Next week we'll talk about Mass Effect 3! 

I kid, but you're right.  I think comparing video games is one of the easiest (and perhaps meaningless) ways to talk about them, and it's something I often struggle with.  It's easier to say, "This game is like this or like that" instead of looking for the appropriate words to convey an idea.  Definitely going to work on that in the future.

I'm in a lit-centric program in grad school, and most of professors actually argue for the opposite-- that putting literature in context with other literature is the BEST way to understand and evaluate it, so I have to disagree that comparisons between games aren't meaningful. On the other hand, comparing D3 to EVVVVERYTHING probably isn't the most engaging thing, so I can see where you're all coming from :D

And thanks for the feedback!

*eye twitch*

Kidding aside,  good Podcasts (56 and the music special). I'm ironically putting together a playlist of the most "epic" game music (Suicide Mission, Finish the Fight, Snake Eater,  etc.). Anyone have any suggestions?

On a side note, I just finished Heavy Rain last night. If anyone hasn't played it here, grab it this weekend and play it at night by yourself. That game is... something else.

Really, you like Heavy Rain, Crispy?  I think you need to go back and listen to one of our older episodes.  I simply don't have the space to go into how fucking awful that piece of pretentious shit is. 

All kidding aside, Heavy Rain tries really hard to do some cool things.  I personally think it fails miserably at just about all of them (how it handles Madison sexuality/vulnerability, the giant freakin' plot holes, generally awful narrative, piss poor acting, etc.) but I think Thomas Wayne said it best when it comes to these things.

Don't worry Crispy, at least one of us on the staff really likes Heavy Rain.

Eh, I'm not saying its far and away my favorite game, but I thought it did a very good job of creating tension. For instance, I'm really claustrophobic, so the crawling through the tunnel scene (besides the plot hole of him not pushing the glass aside like a normal person would) freaked me out. I don't think I've ever said "Oh HELL no!" out loud to myself that many times.

But hey, maybe I'm confusing story-induced stress with QTE-induced stress.
