RPGCast - Episode 333: "BACON


On this morning's podcast we have BACON! Er...excuse me. I mean to say that we learn about Nintend-BACON! Ok, fine, let's get this out of the way. There was bacon present while we recorded. We ate bacon, lots of bacon, and then we were happy. Also, games.

    Great episode! Quick comment though, Anna's statement at 35min about protecting copyrights is incorrect. There is nothing written in US copyright law that states a company has to pursue a copyright infringement case in order to preserve their copyright. Think about it, if that were the case, Nintendo would have lost their rights to Pokemon long, long ago. There are hundreds of Pokemon fan games with large player communities.

    Thanks for playing my segment! People can watch the video here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=WAG-x4Ae6Vg

    Anna: "Who's the Legend of Zelda guy?"
    Chris: "Link."

    That was golden!

    Oh, man. Today's show was really fun. Chris and Anna are a great pair of podcast hosts. I did miss Phil though. That guy is a very welcome addition.

    Not-so-long-time listener, first time commenter.

    Anyway, to answer the question of the week regarding which RPG I would like to see this year, my pie-in-the-sky, impossible wish is for a remake of Panzer Dragoon Saga. I would love to be able to play that game without having to pay insane eBay prices (not to mention buying a working Saturn), suffer eye-piercing, blurry polygons on my TV or have to resort to piracy to play something that comes highly recommended by the guests on an old episode of RPG Backtrack.

    Anyway, great episode, it was fun to listen to while I was stuck working on a Sunday morning!

    My understanding of American copyright law is admittedly shaky, but what I've been told is that free use of those items (even in distribution) doesn't disrupt your copyright protection, but letting people sell things you have copyright /may/ disrupt it (it's not commonly challenged in court since most cases are settled long before they're even "cases"). I know of quite a few fan games, but they're all free, and most won't even accept donations.

    In the US, trademarks do require constant enforcement. Copyrights not so much.

    AHA. I have a bad habit of using those terms interchangeably, even though I know they aren't...

    The game I'd most like to see made is Anachronox 2, and it'll never happen. Anachronox had so much story left to tell after the credits rolled. Still one of my all-time favorite games.

    Fortunately, the game next on my list is Pillars of Eternity.

    One other thing, I think from last week's podcast. Anna has mentioned a couple of times that original Devil Survivor 2 was a 3DS game. She might have played it on the 3DS, but it was most definitely released for the original DS. Devil Survivor 2 was to Devil Survivor 1 what Persona 4 was to Persona 3 . . . a quick follow-up on the same system using basically the same template and released very late in the system's lifecycle. I think the 3DS was already out when Devil Survivor 2 was released.

    I definitely did play it on 3DS -- probably why it's planted so firmly in my mind. Thank you :)

    Well, I'm obviously excited for Shadowrun: Hong Kong, which is supposed to be released by the end of this year. And I hope for many more Shadowrun CRPGs from HBS in the future.

    But the game I'd most like to see is a sequel to or remake of Aracanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura. This game had an absolutely amazing setting and atmosphere, and a really great character creation system. And it was a good attempt at a open world RPG. However, the game has a abysmal combat system (you can choose between real-time or turn-based, but they both suck), major balance issues between the different skills, spells, etc., uninspired dungeon design, and pretty awful graphics (even for it's time). Unfortunately, an official reboot seems unlikely as Activision apparently owns the license and I don't see them doing anything with a cult classic CRPG from 2001... But I hope that someday, someone tries to make a spiritual successor. If they pursued crowd-funding I think it would do alright on Kickstarter.

    Other unlikely games I'd really love to see made:

    Shining Force IV

    Growlanser VII

    Sequel to Return to Krondor

    Star Wars: KOTOR 3

    Neverwinter Nights 3 (
    or any game based on D&D 3.5 rules that ships with a toolset).

    Another Dark Sun. Or Al-Quadim CRPG*

    *Any CRPG set in a world that isn't post-apocalyptic or fantasy world based on medieval Europe would pique my interest.
    Currently playing (on PC): Hard West, Eisenwald: Blood of November, Dungeon Rats, Wasteland 2, Tahira: Echoes of the Astral Empire

    Ever since Mr. Cooper left RPGamer to begin a competing website, he has referred to RPGamer as "Cat Fancy" - a reference to the website's celebrity, Anna "Paws" Privitere. Having been referred to as Cat Fancy for years now, what are your feelings about the actual Cat Fancy's rebranding into "Catster" and their emphasis on whimsy and silly articles? Are there any plans to rebrand RPGamer to "RPGster" and rely on memes and pictures of adorable video game characters to bring in new readers?

    The RPG I would most like to see come out this year (or heck, even within the next two years) is a Baten Kaitos sequel, if I may be a broken record. Put it on the Wii U or 3DS and I will be the happiest person alive. The biggest thing to happen to this series since 2006 is having one song in the newest Super Smash Bros. :P

    For something more likely, but as still unannounced: Bravely Second.
    Bravely second...
    The courage to try again...

    We totally did this for April Fool's last year, complete with a doge-inspired set of "Frossy" memes starring Jack Frost.

    Now that Xenoblade and Zelda are pretty much locked into 2015, the one I want to make sure comes out is Persona 5. I'm still not confident it'll happen.

    God yes, this needed to happen.
