DualCast Level 8 – Xeno-games, Swords vs. Guns and RNGs!

This week’s DualCast is a rather eclectic mix of enthralling topics for RPG aficionados. We start off with a rather detailed discussion about the legacy of Xeno-games, from Xenogears to Xenosaga to Xenoblade. What makes them memorable? What did we like? What are our hopes for the latest title on the Wii? After that we go into a rather light-hearted discussion about which means of enemy beat-down we prefer in our RPGs – swords or guns. Finally, we discuss the dreaded Random Number Generator as it pertains to RPGs, especially that of the MMO variety. So, give it a listen and let us know what you think!
