The RPG Reload Podcast – 003 – ‘Shining Force’

TouchArcade Rating:

It’s that time again, my friends. The most excellent Eric Ford and I got together to produce another episode of the RPG Reload Podcast. There are lots of exciting revelations this episode, the first being that we have our own theme song! It turns out at least one of our fine listeners is also a fine musician, and they have graciously provided us with an awesome arrangement of one of their songs. It sounds a bit like retro RPG battle music, and both Eric and I agree that it’s perfect for the type of show we’re doing. A big, big thank you goes out to Sweet Diss of Sweet Diss And The Comebacks for helping us out with a special TouchArcade Remix of their song Color Of Love from the album Emerald City Love Song. That album is available on iTunes if you want to show some appreciation.

On to business, however! This time around, our main topic is SEGA’s Shining Force ($0.99), which I covered in the RPG Reload a few weeks back. As usual, we talk about a lot of other things before that, including a pretty long discussion about Final Fantasy Record Keeper (Free). That springboards into a little conversation about the nature of free-to-play games and what we think about their potential. We also update you on Eric’s progress through Final Fantasy 13 and my journey through Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call, neither of which are iOS games. Come on, guys, stay on topic! All in all, it’s another enjoyable if erratic chat about all things RPG, and we hope you enjoy it.

If you’re not following us on Twitter at @RPGReload, you might want to. We gave away a bunch of Siralim (Free) item codes a couple of weeks ago, and we’re going to be giving out some promo codes for Templar Infinite Crusade ($0.99) sometime this week. We’d like to do more of that sort of thing in the future, but that of course depends on the cooperation of our friendly neighborhood RPG developers, so we’ll see how that goes. We’ll see you again on the first Monday of May, with any luck. Thanks for listening!
