The sad part is, that song has been stuck in my head all week.

I guess I scared everyone off?

Haven't had time to listen yet.

Holy ****; why did I listen to the ending? 

Bwahaha it's so bad it's good.

LOL thanks for the good episode. Must be damn hot wherever you guys are, it was going to your heads.

How did i miss TYP's singing! That's being used as my ringtone now.

The song... I knew it was coming but wow.

I really tried to sell it. I still don't know if putting it in there was a good idea or not, but it made me laugh when I listened to it the night after recording.

I started listening to the podcast, and so far so good... actually the first two games have excellent music, and the second game surprised me that it has such great music.

Uh... is this the new drunkcast?

Great podcast, and gladly that last song didn't get stuck in my head, not that you don't have a nice voice TYP.

Hey, you actually used my recommendation.  Very cool TYP.  You're now officially my favorite staffer.  I'm glad the discussion in the last thread inspired you to look into Shining Force.

I think that Shining Force and Shining Force II are both great strategy games.  The biggest difference between the SF and Fire Emblem games are the risks inherent with taking your FE characters into battle - if your SF character dies, you merely need to revive them at a church.

Just to clarify on the SF series:

There were two Shining Force games on the Genesis, and the second one is indeed considerably better than the first one. 

SF3 was actually a Saturn title and not bad at all.  It's not a black sheep, really.  The problem with SF3 was merely distribution - it was a late Saturn title and therefore no one played it.  Also, it was  a three part title where only the first part was released in the USA.  Parts 2 and 3 took you through the same story again from different vantage points, and as I understand it, the TRUE ending was only available after finishing all 3.

There was a really crap SF game for Game Gear that was ONLY battles and no overworld exploration at all. 

Also, there was a remake of the first SF for GBA, and it's a fairly faithful remake.

SF1 and SF2 are both available for VC, and worth picking up if you like basic strategy RPGs that aren't terribly complicated.

I didn't think he was going to do it, and then he did.
I thought he was going to stop after a little bit of the song, and he didn't.
I didn't think he'd have the actual song afterwards, but he did.

All in all, a pretty amusing episode even if each game devolved into some kind of weird tangent.

Hey, you guys should be thankful I didn't sing the last verse.
