Our Review of 2023’s RPGs (So Far)

It's summer! That means it's time to grab a burger off the grill, fish a cold one out of the cooler, lie back on a Muskoka chair (ask your local Canadian), and talk about the year in RPGs so far.

Episode Notes

It’s summer! That means it’s time to grab a burger off the grill, fish a cold one out of the cooler, lie back on a Muskoka chair (ask your local Canadian), and talk about the year in RPGs so far. 2023’s been disgustingly busy with huge releases like Final Fantasy XVI, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Diablo IV, and so much more. Your time on this planet is finite, so listen and decide which of these billion hour games are worth playing, and which should be punted onto the backlog that God will unfurl at your feet when it’s time for your soul to be judged.

Also in this Episode:

  • It’s fun to fumble around in TOTK’s dark depths! Wait, we mixed up “fun” and “terrifying” again.
  • Did you know a Sharpie isn’t sufficient for redacting words in a legal document? Sony does now.
  • We kick off Book 3 coverage in Legend of Korra
  • If you’re a Sonic fan, listen to The Cult. And if you’re not a Sonic fan, listen to The Cult.
  • Just play Ys.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Review

It’s the spoiler-free Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Spectacular! The panel has had plenty of time with Rebirth, or as I like to call it “Final Fantasy VII-3”. Does it improve upon Remake? Does it stand on it’s own? Do you need to play the lost mid-2000s Japanese feature phone game Before Crisis to fully grasp the importance of the character of Cissnei?

Put on your black hoodie with the thumb-holes cut out and start drawing “the cool S” on all your homework because we’re taking things back to 2003 AND 2013 at the same time.
