Tetracast - Episode 160: Bleak Hope

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

In this week's lengthy opening segment, the cast starts off with an RPG classic as Adam discusses a revisit to Tri-Ace's Valkyrie Profile. James finalizes his thoughts for visual novel Higurashi: When They Cry. George chimes in with some discussion for The Last of Us Part II, and Bryan has continuing opinions on Phantasy Star Online 2.

As far as news goes, the crew discusses recently shown footage for Cyberpunk 2077 and what we hope to see in the huge RPG. Ys IX: Monstrum Nox has been confirmed for localization, and new ports for Shiren The Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate are on the way. Sadly though, Tales of Arise won't make 2020, as the game has recently been indefinitely delayed. The cast ended with a rundown of news about release dates for The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV and Death end re;Quest 2, the reappearance of Biomutant, and a lite version for Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remasted Edition.

This edition of the Tetracast features Bryan Vitale (@zeomassicot), James Galizio (@theswweet), Adam Vitale (@King_Seda), and George Foster (@gepugg).
