Arnaldo and Paul are joined by good friend and AAA video game producer, Mike, to talk about Sega's 8-bit video game masterpiece, Phantasy Star! The guys start off introducing Mike and arguing over which cover of Heroes Of The Lance is correct (turns out Paul was right) before moving on to introducing Phantasy Star and their experiences with the game and its in-game cake purchasing model (20:00). The production history of the game and its credits come next (1:03:30) followed by a discussion on its legacy, immediate sequels, and some more favourite moments (1:50:00).
