Episode Notes

We’re in the final five of the Top 25 RPG Countdown, which makes it a good time to start making definitive statements. Here’s one for you: Suikoden 2 is the best RPG on the PlayStation 1.

Kotaku’s Jason Schreier joins Axe of the Blood God to discuss what makes Suikoden 2 so good; how it carries the 16-bit torch on to PlayStation, and of course, the Iron Chef cooking minigame. Plus, we debate who is more evil, Luca Blight or Kefka, and share our initial thoughts on Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield!
