Tales of Arise Review w/ Eric Van Allen

This week, Kat and Nadia are joined by USgamer alumni Eric Van Allen as they dive deep into Tales of Arise. Plus Stardew Valley may be finished, news of a KOTOR remake and more.

Episode Notes

Tales of Arise has finally arrived, and it’s bigger than ten Superbowls. This week, Kat and Nadia are joined by USgamer alumni (and Normandy FM podcast host) Eric Van Allen as they dive deep into the latest entry in this beloved but oft-troubled RPG series. Is this the Tale that will save the world, and convert all the non-believers? Maybe. Just maybe. Anyway, it has a cute owl, so it’s automatically GOTY.

Also in this episode: Stardew Valley is finally finished (maybe), a Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake is in the works, and Yoko Taro is making a card-based game that will probably kill us all in our sleep, then instruct us to reflect on our words and deeds.
