    I'd have to say, I disagree with your list still. FF4's town didn't explode, it burned. FF7's didn't technically explode either. If you said towns that were destroyed, sure, but most of them weren't exploded, lol. But, even then, letting that slide, Xenogears totally beats most of them and was so much more awesome cause Id is just such a badass character. 100 times more than overhyped Sephiroth and so many other villains in series. I just have a feeling you never played Xenogears really lol. But I guess this is just an opinion but damn.. Xenogears was deeper than any FF and had so many more awesome characters imo.

    Now I haven't heard this podcast yet but I'm just going to assume that you guys still haven't talked about GDC. Are you ever going to say anything about it or just ignore it? (I'm not trying to assault you guys or anything I would just like to know)
  • LordsOfTechno - May 22, 2009 10:25 p.m.
