DualCast Level 15 - How RPGs Feel, Dragon Age 2 and Some Ranting

We have another episode of the DualCast for you this week, and it’s a doosey. Prepare yourselves! Joel, Matthew and I start off discussing how RPGs make us feel, and how that translates into what we want from an RPG and, ultimately, what really feels like an RPG to us…and what doesn’t. Then we tumble into a discussion about our time with the Dragon Age 2 demo and the may things that come to mind when we played it. Finally, we digress into rant after rant about retro RPG tropes, difficult bosses and artificial difficulty that eventually culminates in Joel admitting that it’s taking him months to play through Twilight Princess. That’s right. Months.
