    In this episode, Austin experiments (see what I did there?) with his first Atelier game, which focuses on alchemy through crafting and gathering. There's also plenty of combat, which Austin talks about quite a bit, too. Early in the episode, Austin shares some fun facts about the game and the series, and then he's recapping his experiences with the game. Toward the end, Austin discusses why he thinks Atelier Ryza makes a great game to play if you're completely new to the series like he was.

    This time around, Austin is discussing one of his favorite JRPGs of ALL TIME: The Legend of Dragoon, which originally released on the Playstation in 2000 in the U.S. In the beginning, we explore the big names associated with the game and some behind-the-scenes fun facts that go along with Sony pushing to get a successful new IP.

    During the personal experiences part of the show, Austin talks about the way The Legend of Dragoon pulled bits from other, more famous JRPGs to make a nice Greatest Hits album for JRPGs in the 1990s.
