Tetracast 345: Bloodstained Final Chapter Prologue

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

In the episode of the podcast, much like Japan during Golden Week, we take a break from RPGs as Chao discusses some thoughts with side-scrolling beam-em-up Slave Zero X, and James dives into virtual reality with Sushi Ben. Josh also gives some final thoughts on Megaton Musashi W: Wired.

News this week is headlined with fiscal reports from Square Enix and Koei Tecmo, as well as several indie RPG updates coming from the IGN x ID@Xbox Digital Showcase.

This edition of the Tetracast features Josh Torres (@HD_Kirin), James Galizio (@theswweet), 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 and follow on Spotify!
