Tetracast - Episode 162: In A Simulation

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

In this week's hodgepodge of an episode, we open up with a discussion around some Bethesda first-person games, with James diving into Prey (2017) and Bryan trying out Doom Eternal. Adam, for no reason, checks out the PC version of Final Fantasy IV to compare it to the 2D version. James also discusses games developed by Team Ladybug, including Touhou: Luna Nights, and Chao jumps in to mention Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth.

On the news side; several brief topics to talk about. Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning was officially revealed by THQ Nordic and is coming with a new expansion. Spiders Studio announced a new RPG in Steelrising, where you play as an automaton in an alternate version of the French Revolution. Limited Run Games revealed many new titles getting physical releases, including several RPGs such as Ys Origin. Amazon's New World MMORPG has been delayed to 2021, and Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin gets a physical release later this year.

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