Episode Notes

You down with RGG? Yeah, you know me!
From Super Monkey Ball to Infinite Wealth, our prestigious panel covers the history and key players of Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio. Eric, Nadia, and special guest Michael Higham discuss the runaway success of the Yakuza/Like A Dragon series, the charm of 1988 Kamurochō, and the role these games have played in their own personal lives and careers. Much like Like A Dragon itself, this episode is full of heartfelt sentimentality contrasted with borderline absurdist comedy!

Also in this Episode:

  • Great tattoo ideas
  • BuT Is iT An RpG?!?!?
  • Visions of Mana!
  • Eric has been playing Palworld…
  • The Art of Fare Evasion
