Tetracast - Episode 277: Last Recollection of Dot Hack Fans

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

In this episode of the RPG Site podcast, we open things up with some recently-released Square Enix RPGs, starting with Jame's initial impressions of Harvestella. Then, we go deep into Tactics Ogre: Reborn, as Josh & Adam dive into all the ways it differs from previous versions of the game. Then, by fan request, James discusses his time with the biggest RPG of the month: Sonic Frontiers.

RPG news this week is headlined by the announcement of a new Sword Art Online RPG with Sword Art Online: Last Recollection (remember that trademark we thought was .hack? yeah). We also discuss Falcom's plans for next fiscal year, Square Enix's focus on the blockchain, sales numbers for Xenoblade Chronicles 3, several new release dates, 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.
