This week we are down quite a few people, since it seems like everyone is travelling over the summer. This week we have Bel and Tam in their correct places, and Kodra and Thalen have been travelling as well but were able to sort out how to join the podcast. This is another one of those weeks where we thought we had nothing to talk about… then wound up podcasting for two hours withou stop. Tam is super excited about the new Mirror’s Edge, and it continues his trend of trying to do ninja things…. Without actually playing a ninja. We talk about how the ninja genre really never quite made a fully successful transition to three dimensional. From there we talk about how Tom Clancy games have gotten more and more paranoid over the years.
Kodra and Tam discuss a new to them miniature game they have been playing called Bushido that sounds suspiciously like the Legend of Five Rings setting. Which spawns a brief conversation about Magic the Gathering and spoiler season. Which leads its way into a discussion about Warhammer and how they went from completely fearing licensing games… to seemingly giving anyone with a heartbeat the right to make Warhammer 40k games. I spend some time returning to Rift and talk about how well they are messaging fights these days. Which leads to a discussion about Final Fantasy XIV in a not great light. I also talk about my experience watching the Warcraft movie and finally we wrap things up with a discussion about he start of the Final Fantasy V Four Job Fiesta.
