tetracast - episode 264: golden ratio!

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

With a little bit of distance from Xenoblade Chronicles 3's release, we mix things up this week as we open with a discussion on the recently released demo for The DioField Chronicle – a new and interesting-looking strategy RPG from Square Enix and Lancarse. We also make our occasional Monster Hunter stop to check out the new Title Update 1 for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. To wrap up the section, Chao introduces the crew to “erotic RPG” Dragon Knight 4, and Josh recounts his impressions of Tower of Fantasy.

News this week is a hodge-podge of things, as we open with some details shared at the THQ Nordic 2022 Showcase. We also discuss new details shared for Dragon Quest Treasures & Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness, updates to both Final Fantasy XIV & Genshin Impact, and new Neptunia RPG, and more.

This edition of the Tetracast features Bryan Vitale (@ZeoMassicot) Josh Torres (@HD_Kirin), Adam Vitale (@King_Seda), James Galizio (@Theswweet), 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!
