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. 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.

- 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.
