Gaming Bus Live Chat, Vol. 10: Tales of Phantasia

Welcome to another edition of the Gaming Bus Live Chat. Last week, I went back home, so to speak, as I had a chat for the Japanese game Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. The FESSers came out for this one, and the chat predictably… turned. Let’s just say we were noted for our craziness, and when you have a conversation turn from chapter 2x in Fire Emblem, to the possibility of my fiancée and I streaming a session of DDR with added kink, you’re not exactly dealing with sane people anymore. Frankly, that’s how we like it.

Speaking of sanity, I lost my own last week when I let my readers choose the game I would play this week. Mind you that a lot of these people have known me for eight years, and they know my likes and dislikes when it comes to video games. Of course, they also like to see me suffer. So when they saw the vote for next week’s game go up, they literally jumped all over Tales of Phantasia. Of course they were. Everyone knows I don’t like the Tales series, but what’s more fun than watching good ‘ol ‘Bus suffer through another game he doesn’t like?

I was hoping to be able to handle video streaming this week, but sadly, that’s not the case. We’re going to have to wait a little longer for that. In the meantime, my cussing out my game comes across just as well in text as it does in stereo.

Come one, come all, and watch me cuss out the weeaboos!
