“Dragon Age: Inquisition Part One – Drunken Age.” PlayStation 4. 2014. Name inspired by the screwdrivers we had while recording. The Dragon Age universe has gone to hell since we last left you at Dragon Age 2. Among other things, the mages and templars are waging an all-out war, strange green rifts are appearing in the sky, and the Divine Justinia, an important spiritual leader, has been murdered along with countless other people in a mysterious explosion. You are the only one to come out of the explosion alive…and you’re also the only one who can seal the dangerous rifts. Welcome to the Inquisition, Miss Trevelyan!

"Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae – Girls, Goblins, and Mullets." PlayStation 4. 2015. Well, we played the demo. We saw many things – mullets, product placement, and even a badass summon. We also discuss how Final Fantasy has evolved over the years and which Final Fantasies are our favorites. There are also opinions. Many of them. Probably controversial ones.

"Pokémon X-Y—Pokémon Noobs." Nintendo 3DS. 2013. All of you Pokémon veterans: come here for a laugh. We are new to the series, and it’s quite apparent. We not only mispronounce the word in Great Midwestern Fashion, but call TM’s “HM’s” and even sneak in a reference to FFX-2. For anyone new to Pokémon…welcome to X and Y! You start out as an ambitious young Pokémon trainer with clingy friends in the French-inspired Kalos region. Of course, things aren’t that simple – you are very intent on becoming the Champion, and as a little side thing this red-haired guy named Lysandre is out to destroy the world. Oh noes!

"Final Fantasy VI: Welcome to Our BBQ!" SNES. 1993. We at last get to our first installment covering arguably one of the best RPGs at all time. We also deviate from our format a little, preferring a more detailed account rather than our usual overview while discussing the World of Balance. Either way, we both love FF6 and are looking forward to finishing the second half of the game!

"Castlevania: Symphony of the Night – Creature of Chaos." PlayStation. 1997. Like platformers and RPGs? Also like eating old, old pizza? Then join us for a discussion of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, one of the most beloved and lauded games in the Castlevania series. In this installment, Alucard, the oh-so-cleverly-named son of Dracula, must search for the missing vampire hunter Richter Belmont and defeat his scheming dad, all while exploring the very appropriately-named "creature of chaos" (AKA Dracula’s castle).

"Final Fantasy XIV Part Two – Life After Level 15." PC/PlayStation 4. 2013.
Recorded on 9/27 – we didn’t mean to stay away for so long, we swear! Today we discuss what it’s like to level up in FFXIV…and to hit the level 50 level cap long before actually finishing the game. Laugh at our noobness, revel in our fundraising efforts for personal housing, and hear us complain about The Hunt. Come for the MMO talk, STAY for the sheep noises!

"Xenogears Part Two – Retro Bohemian Rhapsody." PlayStation. 1998.
At last! In our second installment of this two-parter, we finally finish what we started by discussing the game’s plot, villains, and game mechanics. The dreaded Disc 2 is discussed at length and with relish. Finally, the game is behind us and we can pick up the pieces and move on with our lives! Special bonus: we sound drunk, high, zombified…or something in our last segment. Maybe we were just tired.

Xenogears – "Total S in the Gas Chamber." PlayStation. 1998.

Danger, Will Robinson! At last, we are playing Xenogears, and we have a lot to say about it so far! (We are not fans of this game.) The first of a two parter, with a sizeable discussion of other games in the beginning of the episode. Disclaimer: these are our own personal opinions, and we respect the fact that this is a well-lauded Square RPG.

Fei Fong Wong, like many RPG protagonists, is living happily in a small village, albeit with some major amnesia and absolutely no knowledge of his past. His world abruptly turns upside down, however, when he becomes embroiled in a war between two powerful nations replete with shadowy figures manipulating everything behind the scenes. Why does he have an affinity with these massive battle robots called Gears? What happened to him in the past, even if that past might involve stuff from 10,000 years ago? And who is this mysterious girl called Elly, whom he swears seems familiar somehow? Why is this all so confusing? Listen to find out!

"Tales of Xillia Part Two – Bazonga Bonanza!" Playstation 3. 2011.
A lot goes awry in this episode. Lightning harasses the final boss in a not OK sort of way. Terra has officially broken some kind of record regarding the number of “mmmm-hmmmms” in a single episode. Both of us eagerly await the sequel to this game and share what little tidbits we know. Also…you MUST listen to the episode all the way to the end! There are, uh, some very interesting things waiting for you there.

"Star Ocean: Second Evolution – Fourscore and Seven Hundred Million Years Ago…" PSP. 2008.
It’s been one year since we started our first show with Star Ocean: First Departure! Ironically, we are celebrating this major milestone by discussing its sequel, also a PSP port and remake. In this installment, we dive into the problems of planet Expel, which is dealing with the disastrous arrival of an extraterrestrial device called the Sorcery Globe. Tsunamis, earthquakes, rabid beasts…you name it, it’s there – and it’s up to an Earth boy named Claude and a mysterious girl named Rena to sort it all out. We also do a light review on FFXIV’s PS4 version and how well it integrates with the PS4 hardware and accessories.
