DualCast Level 11 – The Decline of JRPGs

We missed a week but we’re back in force now with a brand new DualCast for you to check out. This week we tackle a couple of related topics that generally come down to the things we think have defined the decline of Japanese games in the last few years, when they used to be at the top of the mountain. Once we get those heated topics out of the the way we have a more light-hearted discussion about travel in RPGs – the good and the bad. Toss in some stuff about flying bats in Fallout, Jon’s Sony obsession and a few random comments from the peanut gallery and you have this week’s RPG outing. Let us know what you think and if you have any suggestions for upcoming DualCast episodes!
