Tetracast - Episode 201: RIP Pinball
Welcome to the latest edition of the Tetracast, RPG Site's regular, seemingly weekly podcast!
In this episode, Adam opens things up to chat a bit about Poison Control, a unique RPG from Nippon Ichi Software that unfortunately doesn't have much substance. The crew then continues with some spoiler-free discussion about NieR: Replicant, continuing from last week. A couple of non-RPG releases enter the episode, with impressions on New Pokemon Snap and Returnal. This weekly section goes a bit long with further chats on Final Fantasy VI, Monster Hunter Rise, and NieR: Automata.
The news side of this week's episode is a little bit light, with some chatter about games heading to new platforms. Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom looks like it is headed to Nintendo Switch, while Dragon Quest Builders II is headed to Xbox and Game Pass. We also have new details on combat in Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, as well as a bunch of sales updates to conclude the episode.
