“After all… why not?” Jens remarked while perusing his backlog. “Why shouldn’t I make Randy play a VanillaWare game?”
Jens was, of course, a long-time fan of VanillaWare and Atlus. He had fond memories of playing the original Odin Sphere fourteen years prior. He’d long internalized it as one of the “Great Games.” PVC representations of its cast of characters adorned his shelves, not far from his still unopened collector’s edition of Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir. The time had come to kill two birds with one stone. The time had come for Randy to find out just what kind of art this raging disco detective was all about. What could possibly go wrong?
Did we say detective? That’s right! Before Jens and Randy dig into Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir, Jens also gives his opinion on Disco Elysium and Randy tells him all about the couples therapy he’s been doing with his girlfriend in It Takes Two.
