Tetracast - Episode 237: All the Combees are Boys

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

This episode of the podcast goes all-in on Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Bryan discusses his time starting out with the game while Jess and James continue their discussion last week about what Arceus does well, and what it all means for future games in the series to potentially build on from. 

A slow end of January means a slow bit of news this week, but the surprise announcement of Voice of Cards: The Forsaken Maiden heads up the discussion, as a sort of follow up to last year's Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars. The seemingly notorious PlayStation 1 RPG Shadow Madness is coming to Steam in not too long, and Genshin Impact gets another major update in the middle of the month as well. Finally, Pokemon games continue to sell well with Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl nearly reaching the 14 million sales mark, and Pokemon Legends: Arceus becoming one of the fastest-selling Pokemon games ever.

This edition of the Tetracast features Bryan Vitale (@ZeoMassicot), Jess Reyes (@JPReyes__), Adam Vitale (@King_Seda), James Galizio (@Theswweet), and Chao Min Wu.
