Tetracast - Episode 264: Golden Ratio!

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

With a little bit of distance from Xenoblade Chronicles 3's release, we mix things up this week as we open with a discussion on the recently released demo for The DioField Chronicle - a new and interesting-looking strategy RPG from Square Enix and Lancarse. We also make our occasional Monster Hunter stop to check out the new Title Update 1 for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. To wrap up the section, Chao introduces the crew to "erotic RPG" Dragon Knight 4, and Josh recounts his impressions of Tower of Fantasy.

News this week is a hodge-podge of things, as we open with some details shared at the THQ Nordic 2022 Showcase. We also discuss new details shared for Dragon Quest TreasuresMade in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness, updates to both Final Fantasy XIV & Genshin Impact, and new Neptunia RPG, 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.
