It’s the beginning of a new season of S.Link FM! To start the year off, we figured recording a more casual episode was a good plan. We talked about the various Fire Emblem games announced, and the possibilities of Nintendo’s new console.
Then in the second half we talked a bit about the games we’ve been playing. From Resident Evil 7 to Gravity Rush 2, a lot of games were touched on. Hope you all enjoy!
After a two-year absence from the show, the mythical being known only as John Hardin has joined us once again. For those new to the show, John is the PR manager for Atlus USA and Sega. He’s been on in the past, but this is the first time he’s been on and can talk openly about Persona 5. So buckle up and join us for Episode 71!
Well we did it, we finally made it to the 70th episode of the podcast–it only took us nearly 4 years! Coming up in this episode in turn one, we go over the games we’ve been playing which include: Dragon Quest Builders, World Of Final Fantasy, and SMT IV Apocolypse. Then in turn two, we talk all about the shenanigans that went down at the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival in Las Vegas. All that plus we answer some listener questions sent to us this week!
It’s story time on this week’s episode of S. Link FM. This week we decided to look back on the RPGs that really resonated with us when we were young. Kyle discusses his first foyer into PC gaming with Diablo, Cheska gets swept up in Kingdom Hearts adoration, Serah tells us of her notes in Final Fantasy VI, Ron explains how Final Fantasy X’s themes of race and faith affected him, and finally Andrea shares tales of spending time with her mom and Final Fantasy IX.
No that episode title is not a typo. After deliberating for several months, we finally went ahead and did an episode on Pokemon. In turn 1, we discussing the linage of Pokemon and our childhood memories the games, anime, and card game. Then in turn 2, we talked at length about the phenomenon that is Pokemon GO.
(And yes, that’s a certain red haired S.Link host as a child with a cutout Pikachu)
With Andrea, Ron, and Serah banished to the shadow realm; it’s up to Kyle and Cheska to save the day. On this episode we talked about Star Ocean Integrity and Faithlessness and Tokyo Mirage Sessions. And of course, we touch on our trip to E3 2016. We also debuted a new format with this one, so let us know what you think about it!
Overwatch, DOOM, and Uncharted–Oh my! On this episode we talked about basically every other genre aside from RPGs. Thankfully Serah and Andrea reigned us in a bit with talk of Divinity: Original Sin. Also we talked a bit about our own predictions for E3 coming up next week.
If you’ve every wanted to hear the intricacies of warfare coupled with the romance game then look no further than this episode. This time we jumped head first into the world of Fire Emblem Fates, and the series at large.
It’s hard to believe, but after 10 years Final Fantasy XV finally has a release date. This episode we had a discussion on the Uncovered event, the Platinum Demo, and the various expanded media circling XV. We even had a heated debate, enjoy this one!
We’re back with another more chill episode were we talk about the RPGs and games we’ve been playing lately. Serah recounts her experience hiding from eyeballs in Bloodborne. Cheska tell us all about the means streets of Stockton and how it prepared her for playing Yakuza. Ron sells Justin Trudeau and Obama as best Fire Emblem couple. Finally Levito laments the loss of his beloved in Dragon’s Dogma. It’s a weird episode, but enjoy it all the same!
This past weekend we finally got the chance to sit down and record the long awaited “open world” Episode. We talked about our feelings on open world RPGs, and answered all the listen questions we had. Hope you all enjoy it!
To bring new year and season 4 of S.Link FM, we decided to kick back and talk about the games we have been playing lately. Some of the games discussed include Final Fantasy VIII, Rune Factory IV, Dark Souls, The Witcher 3, and Trails Of Cold Steel.
We’re going to do more chill episodes like this from now on too, so we hope you enjoy listening!
Another year has come and gone, and as such it is time for our annual holiday episode! As with every year, we went through our top 3 favorite games of the year and explained why we loved them. Enjoy and see you in 2016!
Note: The audio on this episode got a bit muddled up, so apologies in advance. Hope you still all listen to it though!
In this second part of our Mass Effect series, we talk about Shepard as a self insert protagonist vs wholly their own character. We also dip into the romances of the series and how believable they were to us. Finally we finish off the last bit of questions sent to us, hope you all enjoy!
This week it’s all about Turian tail, Batarian ale, and Reaper scale. Yes this week we’re talking all about Bioware’s space opera that is Mass Effect. We went over what about the series resonates strongest for us, along with what moments in particular defined ‘Mass Effect’ during our time with the trilogy. We even had some time to do predictions for Mass Effect: Andromeda, and of course take some user questions.
We’ll also be doing a second Mass Effect podcast in the coming weeks. So if you asked a question and it didn’t get answered, we’ll get to it in the next episode!
It’s time to kick the tires and light the fires because on this episode we talk all manners of speedrunning with Romscout. If you’re new to the podcast, Romscout is a well known Castlevania and SMT speedrunner, as well as event director at Games Done Quick, not to mention the Charity Event Manager at Twitch.
One this episode we talked Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Nocturne speedrunning, why some people dislike speedrunning, and dabbled a bit in metagaming. It was a pleasure catching up with Romscout again!
It was July 7th of 2000 when Square released the last PlayStation 1 Final Fantasy title, IX. While Square may often forget this gem, we have a lot to say about Zidane and the rest of IX’s ragtag crew as we celebrate the game’s anniversary.
Prepare yourself for an hour of Chocobo Hot and Cold, Beatrix praise, and off-topic Final Fantasy VIII discussion.
Some say that words are very unnecessary, as they can only do harm. However in the case of an RPG, that’s clearly not always the case. In this Episode we discuss silent protagonists and compare/contrast them with voiced protagonists. Silent protagonists offer the ability to let the player self insert, while voice protagonists are actually fleshed out characters. We discuss the strengths and weaknesses of both, as well as which we prefer overall. Hope you all enjoy it!
