RPGCast – Episode 493: “Skunk Trapper”

You won’t get skunked this week with a full-fledged RPGCast! We dissect the recent Nintendo Direct (BOWSER IS TAKING OVER), discuss our Now Playing (with a love-hate CompileHeart relationship), and have a heavy dose of fun feedback.

Question of the Week
What RPG franchise would you like to see made into a movie?

    I’m wondering if I should stop leaving comments. Ever since I plucked up the courage to do so that’s about the time that whenever I’d find a new game I love or really enjoy then the cast comes back to me every week to tell me how it ranges from “meh” to “garbage” XD
    I’m gonna be the weirdo who says how much he enjoys Anthem. I haven’t enjoyed a looter shooter this much since the days of Borderlands 2 or, more recently, The Division. The game is gorgeous, the combat is super fun, the four javelins give plenty of diverse and unique skills and armaments, and I love coming back to Fort Tarsis and talking to the citizens there. They’re slowly becoming like my new Mass Effect Normandy family. Owen is clearly best character, and I call dibs on Ryssa Brin as my waifu (her social awkwardness is *adorable*!)
    It’s story is less than compelling, I’ll admit. It serves as more of an excuse to get you out there and shooting things than a reason to care what’s going on, but the colorful group of people back in Fort Tarsis and super fun gameplay totally makes up for the game’s shortcomings, imo.

    QOTW: My knee jerk reaction is to scream, “NONE! Please no!,” but if I had to choose one I’d have to say Radiata Stories because I’d love a 2 hour movie about a young man who walked around town kicking people until they got so annoyed they got into fights with him. And then there’s a random cameo from Lenneth Valkyrie just because and then he wins at everything in life when the young man recruits her. At least that’s how I remember the game going XD

    Ooh, or how about Eternal Sonata! A 2 hour fever dream occurring during the last moments of Chopin’s life could be all kinds of fun and trippy.

    Whenever pretty much anyone on RPGamer says a game is “meh”, or “garbage”, there is a base 50% chance I’ll enjoy it. There is also a base 50% chance that I’ll hate it, so I do research or try a demo before risking up to $60 of my limited video game budget.

    QoTW: Let’s return to FF7 with Final Fantasy Advent Children 2, because I liked Advent Children, and I want to see the story behind the very last scene of the FF7 ending. Alternately, an FF8 movie would be interesting, if extremely unlikely.
