Tetracast - Episode 227: Open World (ish) Fever

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

To open up the first half of this podcast, Adam discusses his experience with Shin Megami Tensei V at length (spoiler-free of course), outlining his thoughts on the RPG and describing how it compares to other entries in the series and marks a new direction for Atlus development. James picks up our non-RPG of the week with impressions on Forza Horizon 5.

News this week is headlined by a short delay for Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, gameplay footage for Elden Ring, a new indie RPG from Shoji Meguro in Guns Undarkness, and several release date announcements for 2022 games.

This edition of the Tetracast features Bryan Vitale (@ZeoMassicot), 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!
