Tetracast - Episode 256: We've Been Waiting For This

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

Although this is a news-heavy episode of the Tetracast, we open up how we usually do with the games we've been playing. Chao is checking out a beta version for 1993 action RPG Illusion of Gaia as we discuss the Soul Blazer trilogy. Josh has been playing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, a well-received beat-em-up that harkens back to the popular TMNT arcade games.

In what might be the busiest week of the year for video game news, we have a lot to chat about in this long episode, including the reveal of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, a Crisis Core remaster, modern Persona ports, Starfield gameplay, Dragon's Dogma 2, and a whole lot 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.
