    Just a quick note: Microsoft brought back Lost Odyssey and you can buy it digitally on the Xbox One. I think I bought mine for under $10 during a sale, which is incredible since I remember paying a lot when I bought the multi-DVD game.

    It's a fantastic game. Blue Dragon is also available.

    "You gotta lightly tap that handbrake as go into a turn so you don't lose your speed, and the best thing you can hope for is to die in your sleep." As are all racing video game faqs from Kenny Rogers.

    Hah, interesting that Caty said only the first Kingdom Hearts is decent, even though for quite a while everybody was raving that 2 was the best.Edited November 2017 by riderkicker

    @AstroDemon I got my copy for free that was interesting, though I wish I sold my copy sooner.

    Hey, I may have missed it in a previous episode's notes or something, but I was wondering where (from whom?) the intro/outro music for this podcast comes from? I love it so much. I especially enjoyed it when you let the whole thing play on at least a couple previous episodes. Thanks!

    @donkeyintheforest We attribute it at the end of every post (it kinda gets buried by the automated "You May Also Like" section): but the music's by the band Slime Girls, you can find their bandcamp here!
