Roguelike Radio pt. 2

A new episode of Roguelike Radio was posted yesterday. In this episode Andrew, Scott and Erez Ben-Aharon discuss Desktop Dungeons and it's roguelikeness. There's some interesting discussions going on and I'm not really sure where I stand myself regarding Desktop Dungeons. The game sure does condense the roguelike experience into a game where every move matters, much like in the most critical and memorable situations of a Crawl or Angband game. But in my opinion it also drive point too far in the sense that a lot of the RPG element is lost in the process, and by that also the attachment to your character.
