We'll have something special next week, but this episode follows the standard format and is full of everything you love about RFN. In New Business, James has full impressions of Phantom Brave, the Wii tactics game that perhaps no one fully understands. Jon has made significant progress in Chrono Trigger (no, really!) and, with his new commute by train, it looks like he will finish it soon and move on to even more role-playing goodness. Jonny got to play some Super Smash Bros. Brawl with TYP, but his main games this week are the awesome Portal 2 and Fallout: New Vegas, which he enjoys despite serious problems associated with the setting and Western RPG conventions. Greg completes the segment with a report on the El Shaddai demo (looks a bit like Killer 7, from the character designer of Okami), and he delivers the final word on Capcom's overlooked Okamiden for DS.
Since we ran out of time for Listener Mail last week, it was a great pleasure to catch up on this show with some of your excellent queries. First up is a survey on our favorite gaming systems of all time, including some controversy over whether PC is eligible. Then we launch into the cascade of Project Cafe letters, covering topics such as resolution/framerate utopia, the true meaning of development codenames, and whether GameCube could be the next Virtual Console system. Please keep those emails coming!
