    Speaking of classic franchises, FF is an all time favourite of mine; Especially FFVIII, which was my first one. Like Nolan, I can basically recount the 1st disc on the game all through to the end and I still find time to play through it at least once each year.

    The conversation about Medievil made me thing about how that is one of those franchises that solidified in my mind despite having relatively few titles, and the gameplay not an experience i would care to repeat.

    Now final fantasy 8 is a title that has stuck in my mind for an entirely different reason. As one of my least favorite entries in the series. A brooding game about mopey characters who complain about losing their memories.

    Hey guys, I keep trying to remember to leave feedback, but my mind is a whirlwind these days. The last time I left feedback, you addressed my comments thoroughly, and I appreciate that.

    I'm liking the 1998 month idea, and I think there are other years that could be deserving of a month as well. You could make an argument for any year from '99 to '04. A lot of great, influential games in that span. I noticed my favorite '98 game of all time, Crash Bandicoot Warped is not on the calendar. No hard feelings.

    By the way, has anyone ever told Brad he looks like Gene Simmons' year book photo?

    1998 month is really fun for me since it's the year I was born! Playing medievil with my sister is one of my first video game memories, so hearing you guys talk about it really brought me back. Thanks for the podcast guys!

    Thank you, Chris Davis, for streaming Body Harvest. I've known about that game for years but I had never tried it out. In fact, I think this may have been my first time seeing it played. I decided to try it out and I'm enjoying it! I'm not very far in but I plan on playing more soon.

    Loving 1998 month so far! Keep up the great work guys!

    It's awesome to hear Nolan is working his way through Fallout 2. I first played them in 2013 and it took a bit to get used to the crazy UI (especially having to use different cursors to do different things) and how difficult combat is in the beginning, but I have a soft spot in my heart for both of the originals after completing them. Plus, given that New Vegas was developed by many of the same people working at Obsidian, I think it's interesting to see how similar tones and RPG mechanics were handled in a different era.

    Also, I agree with Brad about Soul Calibur 6 but I'll add that I really hope the single-player content has meat to it this time around. I know that's not reasonable to want in most fighting games, but Soul Calibur has traditionally had a larger focus on that stuff, save for the most recent entry.

    Hearing Nolan's thoughts on Fallout 2 reminds me of when I tried playing Persona 1 after finishing 3 and 4. It was a jump from what I was used to and the game didn't really explain much. My only saving grace was the instruction manual which was admittedly a dry read. Still, it's interesting to try out an older title in a loved series to see how it all started.

    I'd like to thank Brad for naming me Chatter of the Week for the second time last week, I appreciate it. I'd like to say that I really enjoyed hearing your tales of nostalgia such as brad gushing about his salt water taffy and hoop and a stick. I've loved this podcast for how varying your tastes are. Hearing the origins of your passion for games was great.

    I love Fallout 1 and 2 the most than the modern Fallout games, even though they're still great. It makes me wish they'd make a modern isometric, tactical Fallout game for current gen since that's been a thing since XCOM.

    While listening to the podcast during my commute I was so shocked by the praise Nolan had for Fallout 2 that I literally passed out (jk it was an actual medical thing) & had to go to the hospital (I'm fine now) but thank you guys for keeping me company while I was waiting to get out of the hospital.

    I'd love a way to play those older Fallout games but being stuck on console I guess it is never to be. Here is to hoping one day they remake them for consoles or something.
