Tetracast - Episode 229: The Werehog Wasn't That Bad
Welcome to the latest edition of the Tetracast, RPG Site's regular, seemingly weekly podcast!
This week, the cast goes over new releases such as James's experience so far with the Gen 4 remakes Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl and Bryan's initial impressions with the surprise launch of Ruined King: A League of Legends Story. Meanwhile, Josh goes over his mediocre time with Babylon's Fall's closed beta test, thinking that PlatinumGames has several things to hopefully tweak before release. On the other had Chao had a surprisingly great time with Blue Reflection: Second Light, thinking it was a clear step up from its predecessor and surprisingly strong RPG release for the year.
News this week includes new details for Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin and some details behind the scenes of the newly reshuffled RGG Studio. The crew also goes over expectations for Granblue Fantasy Fes, RPGs coming to Xbox Backwards Compatibility, several upcoming release dates for indie games, and more.
This edition of the Tetracast features Bryan Vitale (@ZeoMassicot), Josh Torres (@HD_Kirin), James Galizio (@Theswweet), and Chao Min Wu.
