Tetracast - Episode 211: Serious Speculation

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

On this episode of the podcast, we open things off with a slight format change - picking a handful of starting topics rather than going round-robin among the crew. First up this week is the Steam Deck, a portable PC that could make a big splash where other Valve hardware could not. We then shift gears a bit and go retro, when Adam discusses his playthrough of the Japanese-only PC Engine title Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys. We conclude the opening section with a quick no-spoilers return to AI: The Somnium File as Josh finishes up his playthrough to prepare for next year's sequel.

For news this week, we speculate on what Persona announcements we might see in the series' 25th anniversary year. We also go through the near-miracle western localization announcement for Super Robot Wars 30. We also touch on the comments made about the not-yet-existing Final Fantasy X-3, the recently-announced Bravely Default: Brilliant Lights, an alleged dispute over the Judgment series, and more.

This edition of the Tetracast features Bryan Vitale (@ZeoMassicot), Josh Torres (@HD_Kirin), James Galizio (@Theswweet), Adam Vitale (@King_Seda), and Chao Min Wu. You can find links to the full episode of the podcast below along with our RSS feed, and also subscribe to us on iTunes or Google Podcasts, and follow on Spotify!
