Tetracast - Episode 234: Rebirth Exceed!

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

As the year starts to warm up, the crew goes over what they're playing in January. Josh has already put a lot of time into the PC version of Monster Hunter Rise, while Bryan is taking a slow start to January to finish out Yakuza 6. Chao and James talk a bit about their current thoughts on Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, and then the crew goes into the usual tangent about fighting games,

After briefly discussing the new PlatinumGames CEO Atsushi Inaba, the crew then goes into a list of indie game news to look forward to in the early part of the year including Eternal Radiance, Infernax, Rise of the Third Power, and others. Next Bryan and Josh discuss their cautious excitement for Pokemon Legends: Arceus, wondering if it will do enough to bring back lapsed Pokemon fans. The crew also discusses new trailers for Expeditions: Rome, Elex II, and Lost Ark.

This edition of the Tetracast features Bryan Vitale (@ZeoMassicot), Josh Torres (@HD_Kirin), James Galizio (@Theswweet), and Chao Min Wu.
