The Dragon Quest podcast I do with Bradly Hale has reached level 2! This episode we talk DQ on mobile platforms, the upcoming DQX expansion, and have an in-depth talk about the original Dragon Quest (/Warrior, and specifically the Game Boy Color version)!
The episode is up on iTunes (or here if you don’t use iTunes).
