Welcome to the latest edition of the Tetracast, RPG Site's regular, seemingly weekly, podcast!
We kick off this week's episode with a discussion about Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, and DOOM Eternal - they aren't RPGs but RPGs aren't the only things we play! On the RPG side, James completed Nioh 2 and found it to be a big improvement on the first game, while Adam talks about his time with the Wasteland 3 beta, which has promising RPG mechanics but a questionable tone. Finally, Josh discusses his experiences with the demo for Trials of Mana and the closed beta test for Genshin Impact.
On the news front, the team discusses the recently released information for both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles. The team then goes into a bunch of recently revealed smaller-scale RPGs, such as ones announced at the Nintendo Indie World showcase, along with Sea of Stars from the team behind The Messenger. The cast finishes off by talking about some upcoming Monster Hunter World updates as well as our continuing new life with COVID-19 upending everything.
This edition of the Tetracast features Bryan Vitale (@zeomassicot), Adam Vitale (@King_Seda), Josh Torres (@HDKirin), George Foster (@gepugg), and James Galizio (@theswweet).
