(Could you tell Magicman titles the shows? We certainly see what takes priority for him!)

On this week’s show we roll through our thoughts on the F2P news out of E3 this year, talk about Bless Online closing in the West and what the future looks like for Bless Unleashed, and take a look at Conqueror’s Blade through Jason’s First Look video.

  1. Da-Bomb to PSO2 coming west, I’ll be checking it out with the hubby when it hits PC, as we both really enjoyed the original. Yay!

    A-Bomb to a chest cold and pinkeye at the same time. Thanks co-workers.

    There was one other thing at E3 other than the FFVII remake (which I too bought the stupid expensive edition for…) that caught my eye, and that was the Dark Crystal based tactics game. I am so in!

  2. My favorite E3 moment was the new trailer for Fire Emblem 3 Houses. Before this trailer all the official info was playing up the ‘high school anime’ with a heavy focus on JRPG micro management and character growth. While I don’t think there is anything wrong with that kind of game, it’s not what I come to fire emblem for so … I’VE NEVER BEEN SO HAPPY TO SEE A TIME SKIP!! Learning that the post time skip is a cross between genealogy and the tellius games has made me so much more HYPED for this game.

  3. DA BOMB for Magicman he is like a jehovah’s witness for FFXIV and i started playing it after he prase it so much and man i love that MMO its hard and grindy at times but in general i love it. So thnks Magicman

  4. Had me at PSO2 coming to the West and lost me when it’s just on the XBONE. Let’s hope there’s a PC release at some point. Otherwise, I’m extremely disappointed. At least Final Fantasy 7 Remake didn’t disappoint with a PS4 release and not hold the phone until the PS5 launched, which I feared.

    • Yeah I said the same on the cast that consoles I think was the right way to go at this point, but XBox One only was a small target and they need to go to other consoles, in my opinion.

    • It’s coming to PC as well, Windows 10 thing, and on E3 Phil Spencer already said that it’s only coming first to Microsoft platforms, after that will come to all others like PS4 and Switch, but about crossplay stuff i really don’t know, it will happen between One and PC, the other platforms it’s kinda trick.

      • Nice, I figured the other consoles had to come later, but wonder why I kept missing the PC version in the west thing, you seem to be right though I finally found a story that includes PC in the Spring 2020 launch with XBox One. YAY!
