Episode 60 - Dragon Warrior

26Apr

In this very special episode, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) take a trip back in time with one of their childhood favorites the RPG, Dragon Warrior/Dragon Quest. Are they looking at the game through rose-colored glasses or will this experience prove their fond memories true? Episode #60 of the Playcast, is dedicated to the memory of Shawn's childhood friend and one of the game's biggest fans, the late Jessie Patterson. Be sure to stick around after the show for a special treat. You will not want to miss it!

The guys discuss the game's story, the ins-and-outs of the gameplay, the graphics, the music, and sounds. Due to the heavy grinding required to complete Dragon Warrior, some reviewers have described it as "unplayable." Shawn and Rich determine whether this term fits and even get a hand from an old friend. In our Concertcast segment, the guys discuss their Top 5 albums that were released in 1986, the same year Dragon Quest came out in Japan. Can you guess what some of their favorite tunes are? And will they come away loving this game as much as they did back in the day? The answers to all of these questions and many more, in the newest episode of the RF Generation Playcast. Check it out!
