Tetracast - Episode 179: On the Brink of Next-Gen

Welcome to the latest edition of the Tetracast, RPG Site's regular, seemingly weekly, podcast!

On this edition of the podcast, Bryan opens things up with continuing thoughts on Nioh 2, enjoying his time in the demon destroying action RPG. James touches on a few games he's played in the last week, including Mad Rat Dead and Alan Wake

Josh and George then kick off a long discussion about Yakuza: Like a Dragon, the 8th mainline entry in the Yakuza series, and the first to be a turn-based RPG. 

On the news front, we are hot off the announcement of Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, coming in 2021. We also have new details on Bravely Default II, a surprising patch for Final Fantasy IV on PC, and some discussion about Marvel's Avengers sales performance. We also touch on new updates to Bug Fables, Star Renegades, Temtem, and Genshin Impact. The episode ends with some discussion on the future of Dragon Quest.

This edition of the Tetracast features Bryan Vitale (@zeomassicot), James Galizio (@theswweet), Josh Torres (@HD_Kirin), George Foster (@gepugg), and Adam Vitale (@King_Seda).
