Tetracast - Episode 187: Backlog Bonanza

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

January is a quiet month until we see some RPGs releasing in February, and the crew discusses what we've been playing in that time. Adam has more than 100 hours into the PC port of Nioh 2, which seems to be a pretty good port of a great game, though there are some lingering issues. George has completed Immortals Fenyx Rising and has some mixed thoughts about the game's combat and puzzles. Bryan has been putting some time into a new fan-mod of Fallout: New Vegas titled The Frontier, and he is genuinely enjoying some of the quest writing. Finally, James has put some time into Toukiden 2 and the PC port of Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen.

The topical news section of the podcast this week is a little bit barren, but we have updates on a new Expansion Pass for Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town, an upcoming update to Genshin Impact, and a patch for Horizon: Zero Dawn. Cygames has released a new gacha game in Princess Connect! Re: Dive, Arc System Works has a niche adventure RPG coming next month in Kowloon Highschool Chronicle. Finally, the cast touches on the weird (and now-revoked) price hike for Xbox Live Gold, as well as the future of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1&2 Remaster developer Vicarious Visions.

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