Tetracast - Episode 218: It's Not Pachinko, It's Plinko!

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

In this episode, we have a somewhat slow week ahead of a deluge of big September RPG releases. Jess opens things up with early thoughts on Dark Deity - an indie Fire Emblem like that released for PC this Summer & is coming to Switch next year. Jess and Chao also discuss the recent 2.1 update to Genshin Impact, which very importantly adds fishing. Josh has thoughts on an indie mecha action game in Mecha Knights: Nightmare, James has final thoughts on Hajimari no Kiseki, and Adam wraps up with his time in Assassin's Creed Valhalla: The Siege of Paris.

News this week is headline by TGS stream announcements, such as Square Enix's line up including Final Fantasy Origin: Stranger of Paradise and Project Triangle Strategy. We also discuss debut gameplay for Marvel's Midnight Suns, DLC coming to Lost Judgment, and more tidbits dropped throughout the last week.

This edition of the Tetracast features Josh Torres (@HD_Kirin), Jess Reyes (@JPReyes__), 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!
