Episode 34 – JRPG vs. WRPG: Round 1…FIGHT!

This week on VGRealness, the crew is all together for a JAM PACKED episode! Michael hosts (a relatively hashtag-less episode) this week and introduces a new segment, Review Corner. To kick off this new segment, he covers The Powerpuff Girls: Defenders of Townsville.

As always, the boys cover the news of the week, starting with some of the big news items out of GDC.

For the big discussion topic this week, the guys cover the similarities and differences between Japanese RPGs and Western RPGs. What are the main themes behind each and what are the things that we like and don’t like about each? Which do you prefer? Are you team JRPG or team WRPG?

To close out the episode, it’s the return of Phoenix Down — the segment where the crew talks about a game series that they want to see come back with a sequel!

DON’T FORGET! Our Smite God Pack contest closes on Wednesday March 26. See episode 33 for details.
