Tetracast - Episode 235: Legions and Leaks

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

The cast starts out with Bryan discussing his time so far with Expeditions: Rome, going over his experience with both the turn-based tactical gameplay and feelings on the game's setting. After finishing with Monster Hunter Rise on PC, Josh decided to replay a little bit of Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, going into what's unique about "Old-school Monster Hunter". Finally, Chao discusses his time playing Valis: The Fantasm Soldier Collection on Nintendo Switch. Josh also goes over his excitement and expectations for the rumored new Armored Core game.

In a top-heavy news section of the podcast, the crew discusses their bewilderment at Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard amidst the allegations of the last several months, alongside the formation of a new union at Raven Software. The rest of the news section involves the announcement of Songs of Glimmerwick, a sales update for Monster Hunter Rise, new demos and release date for the Kingdom Hearts series on Nintendo Switch as cloud releases, and the incoming Shenmue anime series.
