Tetracast - Episode 254: LeChungus

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

This week's episode is more focused on the news of the week instead of discussing the games we've been playing, but we open up Josh's experiences with newly-released visual novel Loopers, Jame's experience with buying a house in Final Fantasy XIV, as well as the pre-launch beta test for Mario Strikers Battle League.

News this week is headlined by the second major trailer for Final Fantasy XVI, which gives us lots to chew on regarding the sixteenth mainline entry. Square Enix also revealed Romancing SaGa: Minstrel Song Remastered, a re-release of a weird but cool PS2-era RPG. Across the globe, Owlcat Games also revealed they are developing Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader, the first traditional CRPG for a Warhammer game. We also have an update on Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, and more.

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