Following up our examination of the original Suikoden, Mark joins me yet again to discuss the sequel to that game, Suikoden 2.

Suikoden 2 is regarded as one of the greatest RPGs of all time, but does it hold up? What changes were made from the original game? Is the story one worth revisiting, or is it just a jumble of video game cliches?

All this and more in our in depth conversation about Suikoden 2!

A Few Thoughts About Suikoden

One of the games that had the biggest impact on me while I was growing up was 1996’s Suikoden. Released on the PlayStation, it was a traditional Japanese RPG that featured a large cast of characters and a story that focused on political intrigue.

I recently dusted off my PS Vita and fired the game up. 15 hours later, I had a new appreciation for the game (along with some old frustrations). In this video, I’m joined by Mark to discuss the 27 True Runes, bad inventory management, and weapon sharpening!
