Tetracast - Episode 267: All The Anime Tropes

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

We go retro in this week's episode. Rather than discussing new games, we go with some backlog titles, with Adam opening things up with a recent playthrough of Koudelka - the predecessor to the Shadow Hearts series. Chao then discusses Shining Wind, one of the many spinoffs of the larger Shining series.

News this week is headlined by Tokyo Game Show lineups - with the show set to run from September 15 to September 18. We also have an announcement for Voice of Cards: The Beasts of Burden, a localization announcement for Trinity Trigger, and more.

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