  1. Good episode guys, I loved the Japan vs NA segment!

  2. Awesome podcast guys :). Thanks for answering my question! (Bob) lol. Its really John, but eh. Keep it up!!

  3. Loved Naomi’s contribution to this podcast, and the main topic! Great job, guys!!

    I’d love to hear Naomi’s take on games from publishers/developers like Atlus that dare create and import JRPGs that dare break the stagnant mold (Shin Megami Tensei series, Radiant Historia, Etrian Odyssey series, etc.).
