Talking Points:
-Class and levels as an obstruction to roleplaying - a soapbox story by Scott
-Tone makes it work
-balance
-Size matters?
-Classes vs jobs
-Management aspects\customization
-Characterization as part of the class is frustrating
-Western vs jrpg classist notions
-Issues outside fantasy, where people have jobs too.

    I want to know what game genres, or even game/game series, you like outside of RPG genres.

    fun fact: scott sneaks song lyrics into the title of every text review he has ever done for the site.

    this is harder for video game reviews because he only gets 6-ish words

    I love flamethrower's question, so I imagine we'll be tackling that. Anything else you want to hear us go on about?

    Other than joe Abercrombie that Sam mentioned, which book or book series would be your personal choice to become a video game.

    How will we handle not just 1, but 2 Yakuza games released in the same year? :D

    Modern Tokyo and generic fantasy have been done to death, so whats a setting for a game you would like to see someone try?

    What game are you most annoyed about not playing/finishing and slipping into the backlog this year?

    Are there any RPG sub-genres not being served at this point, and if not is that a sign of a bubble in the industry that's going to burst?
