Tetracast - Episode 279: Dungeons in RPGs are an Endangered Species

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

Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving Holiday in the U.S. and we're here with another episode. After some major RPG releases in the first half of the month, this week is evidently lighter. We kick things off revisiting recently-released games, As every has gotten their hands on Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet. We follow that up as Bryan discusses his time with Star Ocean The Divine Force, and Adam reflects on the PC releases of Valkyrie Elysium

News this week is also light, but we did get a new trailer for Fire Emblem Engage, showcasing the Emblem Rings and how they affect the strategy gameplay. We also have new trailers for The Witcher 3's next-gen update, One Piece Odyssey, Rune Factory 3 Special, Dragon Ball Z Kakarot, and more.

This edition of the Tetracast features Bryan Vitale (@ZeoMassicot), Josh Torres (@HD_Kirin), Adam Vitale (@King_Seda), and Chao Min Wu. You can find links to the full episode of the podcast below along with our RSS feed, and also subscribe to us on iTunes or Google Podcasts, and follow on Spotify!
