Just wanted to echo Stephen and Rob's sentiments-- thank you guys for listening and having kind words for us. It's the best "reward" we could ask for. :)

...aside from reviews on iTunes. <3

I still want you guys to talk about Barkley Shut-up and Jam Gaiden.  That would be groovy.

That stuff about being surprised by games due to lack of information was cool, although I do get that excited by localizations of games I thought may be doomed to be unlocalized like BDFF and Danganronpa.

I'm not sure what we were discussing, but it was probably Stephen. He's not a fan of the series, which I can respect. :) They're pretty grindy and tend to not change a lot from game to game. I enjoy them, though (especially VIII)!

Indeed.  He needs to play 8.  This series turned modern RPGs into what they are in the first place.  I tend to believe they are the best RPG gameplay experiences you can get.  The adventure you go on going thru dungeons, collecting items, trying to survive and making it thru.  Exploring the world often with a ship and flying device, too.  It set the standard.  It feels like other series just do 1 or 2 things really well and have flashy new ideas but are just terrible in other areas.  DQ is consistently solid.

I've actually played VIII, and the combination of higher definition Toriyama designs (whose art I really dislike) and the same old series combat sort of exacerbated my problems. I really only enjoyed the world map, truthfully. The only one I somewhat enjoyed was IX, and from what I understand many people hated that one, hah!

I am just not generally a fan of the hyper traditional turn-based RPG anymore, and never enjoyed the tone of them back in the day. As Rob and Co used to say, Stephen hates whimsy. Also generally speaking, I'm no longer interested in iterative "done-well-but-done-before"  game play. With my gaming time ever decreasing, I tend more towards unique experiences or excellent stories.

That said, I can totally understand why people enjoy them!

Well, I'm that arsehole that tried the Path of Exile beta and didn't like it as much as Torchlight II *and* is currently playing Diablo III while wishing it was more like Torchlight II.  But hey, I'm some kind of hipster fanboy who's shorting out a breathalyzer from all the Dark Souls in the podcast. 

And I think that Rob was making an unfair comparison in the world-building and narrative discussion.  In a vacuum, it's much, MUCH easier to create a compelling, richly detailed narrative in a novel than in a video game, if only because putting pen to paper is a less expensive, less labor-intensive process than programming additional environments, characters, and dialog into a video game.  Even your massive-budget BioWare and Blizzard games have shunted story details (i.e. your menu-hidden codices and information compendiums) because it's simply cheaper and easier than having more in the game proper.  I don't want to go down the dark rabbit hole of discussing the high cost of game development affecting quality and quantity of content (which you also sidestepped in the podcast, probably for good reason), but there ya go.  It's unfair comparing the world-building in a novel to the world-building in a game.

I also did not care for Path of Exile.  I like both Diablo 3 and Torchlight 2.
