RPGCast - Episode 430: "It's Pronounced Candal-a-bra"

E3 has come and gone. What did we think? What did you think? We try to tackle all these topics as well as figure out why we need an Xbox One X. We also get lost in FFXIV's Deep Dungeon. What day is it? I'm still sick. Send help. And pizza.

    Yeah, I was talking about in battle combat spells. Jack Brothers is one in Persona 3 as well, but as far as I recall, it wasn't very good. On the other hand, Cadenza is a great healing spell for early in the game. it basically probably gets the most use in the first month of the game. After that, it could be good, but it's not worth it to keep Orpheus and Apsaras. Maybe even before the end of the first month you'd want to get rid of them, but it's definitely good for taking on the first set of Tartarus bosses. I think there's even a combo spell called Armageddon or something that can one shot just about anything, but I never got it and you'd have to already be pretty overpowered to get it.

    Agreed both about low expectations and underwhelming E3.
    Game of Q1/Q2 was definitely Persona 5 for me. What games am I looking forward to? Danganronpa V3. Besides that, mostly just working on my backlog.

    I have to give Persona 5 game of Q1/Q2, but Horizon Zero Dawn deserves an honorable mention.

    The one game for Q3/Q4 that I will definitely preorder is the Mario & Luigi + Bowser's Minions remake. I loved that RPG, and if anything can get me to play an RTS, it's the Bowser's Minions sidegame.

    Paws is the weakest character of Cthullu Saves the World. Paws got benched out of necessity in my CStW Hard difficulty playthrough. I'm sorry, but it's true. (I already have Cosmic Star Heroine on PC so don't enter me in the giveaway.)

    Game I'm looking forward to in the second half of the year? It's the easy answer, and it might still slip into next year, but it's Xenoblade Chronicles 2 for me. I'm pretty excited for Fire Emblem Warriors as well.
    Bravely second...
    The courage to try again...

    Amazon Pre-order pricing drop update: Thanks for the interesting speculation on the last episode Anna. As an update, I got my half off copy of God Wars, but apparently Amazon sold too many at that lower price because it was out of stock and it took them a week to get me a copy. So if the algorithm is trying to get rid of excess copies, it got overly aggressive in the God Wars case.

    Game of Q1/Q2: Yakuza 0 with Trails in the Sky The 3rd a very close second.

    Game I'm looking forward to in the second half of the year? Ys VIII looks fantastic and the Yakuza fan in me is very excited for Yakuza Kiwami. Stick a gun to my head... I guess I'll go with Ys VIII, but I want them both bad.

    1st half GOTY: Persona 5, but my "games I missed" list is longer than my current top 10 list.

    What I'm most looking forward to: Mario Odyssey, Fire Emblem Warriors and (fingers crossed for no more tech hurdles) Cosmic Star Heroine Vita.
