Great show, but I too skipped the retroactive as SRPG's make me nauseas.

I played SF2 for another hour today. It's a high quality game, and I'm really getting into it. Funny that some of you are avoiding the discussion due to your dislike of the genre, as I think this is by far the most accessible strategy RPG I've played. If any game could appeal to non-fans, it should be this one.

Maybe it is my bias and first-time SRPG exposure being Fire Emblem, but I find most of the Fire Emblem games to be far more accessible than this one. Though, this did come before any of the Fire Emblems that I've played so this one is a little more dated in certain mechanics.

Cosmic Walker has as much info out as Dynamic Slash so it's not alone. Weren't there a few more games from that conference without any further info?

Span Smasher (a brief mention of it at E3, supports M+)
Tact of Magic (released in Japan and never mentioned again or appearing to be coming to West)
Endless Ocean 2 (probably the most likely to be released considering the first one did and sold over a million copies)
Sin & Punishment 2 (only one confirmed so far to be coming to the West)

Response to Lindy Rap: ...wow... :D

Stratos: At least those had more info released, I think all of them even had playable versions somewhere.

True, KDR. I think there is only one video each for Dynamic and Cosmic. Interestingly, Dynamic Slash is listed as Dynamic Zan on IGN.

All of those titles are on my list of mourned MIA titles along with Soma Bringer, ASH and Fatal Frame 4.

NWR should do a feature on MIA games that never made the jump over the Pacific or came to PAL-Land but not North America and vice-versa.

The intro was bad ass.  DJ Hero interests me, but I don't really like rap.  Also the price is a big hurdle.  And the fact that I've never gotten into music games.  However, an all techno/pop/rock version would interest me a lot more.

I'm a bit surprised at the people skipping the RetroActive section.  I always listen to those even if it is a game I'm not playing or care for.

Agreed, it is part of the show and I find it to be an enjoyable listen even without playing along. It's the same with going back to old episodes as well. The news and events don't have to be current to get enjoyment from the show.

Nice to know I'm not the only one.  I needed something to listen to this weekend and ran out of podcasts.  Went back to some pre 75 shows.  Listening to them discuss the need to skip wii pre-orders is always good for some lolz.

I like to keep episode 103 permanently on my iPod podcast playlist.

I have all the old episodes D/L'd and I plan to go through them all at some point for fun. Maybe if I get another boring graveyard security job down the road.

So, was that compliment of my forum name sarcasm? Because, I think the name is kind of dumb. It's a ten year old relic, and I only keep it for consistency.

No sarcasm. I am a skiing fanatic and like the silly mental image.

Anyway, spectacular show as always, fellas. Andy's a keeper.

I can't wait to hear everyone's reaction to the intro.

That was the single greatest thing I've ever heard.

Gotta say, I've really liked Andy's contributions on the last two podcasts.  Bring him back sometime!

Thanks, Sundoulos!   It was fun to record them, and hopefully I'll be back on at some point in the future.  In the meantime, I can direct you to Newscast which features myself, Neal Ronaghan, and Zach Miller.  There's a new episode in the works which should be released by the end of the day.

I was thinking of sending this in for listener mail, but... I just saw a commercial for a movie called Pirate Radio. Suspicious, don't you think?

I think a video RFN at the hotel room at E3 would be pretty epic.

Jon's rap is tied for the greatest thing to ever air on RFN.

It shares the honor with James' Disaster Day of Crisis skit.
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

Naw, they tie for second. Infamous Episode 103 is #1 in my book.
