The RPG Cast crew discovers where the monkey’s paw has taken them this week. Chris is trapped in a room playing with kitties. Kelley has to survive a Pokémon/Shining Force Crossover. Anna Marie is stuck in a time loop and isn’t sure where the spoon is. Josh almost succeeded in not shooting any children out of cannons, but then he took an arrow to the knee.

Chris’ constant pessimism about everything(including things he hasn’t even played or doesn’t know — about) gets a little tiring, damn.
I will download demos, but if you give me the start of the game and let me apply my progress to the full release I’m more apt to play them.
QOTW: I use to play demos all the time, mostly because those were my games between games on my extremely limited income. Now, though, not so much. I download them out of habit, but very few get played unless I hear by playing them I’ll unlock some kind of bonus or item pack for the full game.
Correction Corner (from a Tales fan): Kelly, you’re correct that Tales of Zestiria does indeed suck, but you do not need to play Zestiria to understand Berseria. As a 1000 year prequel, Berseria adds context to Zestiria, but it stands alone with occasional nods forward that you don’t need to get to understand it’s story. Just wanting to put this out there because it’s my opinion that Berseria is a game worth playing and don’t want people scared off because they were told they need to play a crappy game to understand a very good one.
I download demos all the time. Sorry? Do I play demos? Almost never – there are multiple full games I own that I haven’t gotten around to playing, why would I play a demo? That said, I do appreciate the option – and the odd one does get me.
