Combo Chain - A JRPG Podcast

Classic JRPGs, in brief

About the show

Combo Chain is a games club podcast about JRPGs, and other related genres. Each episode talks about the mechanics, story and the game as a whole...but really, we're all here for the stories, right? And the zen-like appeal of grinding. Really, it's so good. Hosted by Paul M. Davis and a rotating group of guests.
