So I think that the biggest thing you missed in the comparison between Tales and DQ fans, is that not only do DQ fans have a lot more cause for concern- there is already a history of DQ not coming west in the mid 90s. We never got the original DQ5 and DQ6, despite marketing for Dragon Warrior 5 around 93-94. We're currently in the second dark ages. Those of us who are long term fans from the beginning in the 80s, remember the first dark ages and don't like to see it happen all over again.
You do bring up good points about sales being an issue. I don't have any response, I have no idea how to improve it. I've purchased every single DQ/DW that has come west since day 1. What I do know is that heavy marketing helped both 8 and 9.
Now, I'm not as familiar with Tales prior to Symphonia, I don't believe we got all the games prior to that. But not being part of that fandom at the time, I didn't see it first hand. But at this point, getting new Tales games seems a lot more likely than getting new DQ games. I just can't argue with a 0 for 8 3DS DQ localizations being quite disheartening.

Great episode, as always!
I like the little songs between questions! One comment on that though: Is it possible to post the list of songs used in the show notes or on this board, in case somebody wants to track it down? (To be fair, I wish the RPG Backtrack was doing this too).
