  1. I just finished listening to your 4th podcast and really enjoyed it! I just wanted to say that in -my- game, I never summoned Pate for the Last Giant boss fight, yet I was able to successfully complete his storyline. Not sure if that would be the case for everyone, but just wanted to provide some anecdotal evidence.

    1. Hmm. I’ll look into that and make a correction if need be on the next ep.

      I fully believe you as I hear many people talking about the next time you meet Pate, and I don’t believe everyone knew to summon him for the fight AND managed to carry him through it. But on the other hand all sources I’ve read claim that to progress most of those character’s story lines you need to summon them for their respective bosses. I’ll do some more digging.

      1. Hmm. It seems he probably will still appear at the next location, but if you carry him through the boss fight he will give you his full armor set, spear and shield.

  2. Can I simply say what a reduction to find someone who truly knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You undoubtedly know easy methods to deliver an issue to mild and make it important. Extra people have to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant consider youre not more in style because you undoubtedly have the gift.

  3. Very interesting, if that is true, Microsoft is going to be getting even more flack (if possible) from the blogosphere. I just assumed many weren't talking about IE8 since it's looking like it potentially won't be out now until 2009 after Bill Gates himself promised new versions of IE every 9 to 12 mo3hns&#82t0;
