Tetracast - Episode 205: We have progressed beyond the need for Mario

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

In this episode, George Foster opens things up with his thoughts after completing Biomutant, which seems to have some decent customization options but misses the mark elsewhere. James and Bryan continue to chat a bit on Final Fantasy XI, and Josh closes out the section with quick thoughts on Scarlet Nexus' demo and some Knockout City.

In the topical news portion of the episode, it's all about Dragon Quest. The 12th main entry has been announced, although details are sparse, along with a remake of Dragon Quest III and a spinoff in Dragon Quest Treasures. A Metal Max stream also took place this week, announcing an English localization for Metal Max Xeno Reborn, details on Metal Max Wild West, and an announcement of a new Metal Saga title. In a packed week of news, we wrap up the episode with discussions on Horizon Forbidden West's State of Play demo, a new mecha SRPG in Relayer, and more besides.

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