More
Sequels are never better than the original right? Well this may be the exception to the rule. Part II of our Tokyo Game Show 2019 special is epic. I breakdown all the greatness of the Final Fantasy VII Remake gameplay, along with some things you may have missed. And I'll give my thoughts on the new Classic mode. Tales of Arise was there with a new trailer and it looks more "Tales of" which is very good. Plus a slew of smaller stories. Thanks so much for listening each week! Leave us a...

8/30/2019
More
In the weeks between Gamescon and Tokyo Game Show, news can be light. But we soldier on and actually have some cool stories to talk about. The first is the first solid details of Atelier Ryza's battle system. While still turn based, its a departure from previous titles and looks great.

We had a technical issue with the original upload so here it is again! Working for a nice change. If you already downloading the original file, delete it as the first part has no sound. Sound apparently is important to a podcast who knew? In Episode 65 we discuss all things Tales of Arise, FFVII Remake and some Trails of Cold Steel III new changes. All that and so much more in a week I didn't think we would even have enough material for a podcast. Thanks for bearing with our problems. ---...
