The RPG Cast has dived head first into #JRPGJuly in our now playing, but since the new month has rolled over, that also means new bugs and fish to catch in Animal Crossing as well! We’ve got a slew of editorial content to discuss and a smattering of news. Stay safe during the holiday weekend!

New Game Plus Expo comprises the bulk of this week’s news, while the crew ponders their love and hate for Phantasy Star Online 2. Just what has Anna Marie been playing the last two weeks? You’ll have to listen to the episode to find out!
The best way to predict the review score of a game is to play a demo of it. So never trouble another for what you can do yourself. For every minute you are playing you lose sixty seconds of ignorance. And without Pokémon tooth brushing games, life would be a mistake.
Before we go pre-order all the games from Steve, we get a podcast up for you. Chris and Kelley complain about Civ 6 on Switch. Johnathan rages in some streets. And Josh is trying to find where to turn all his sidequests into. Ok, we’re off to go be feline couriers.
With many media events getting pushed back, the news is a little trim this week. But we still manage to pull together our basket of zany personalities for a podcast we hope brings a smile to your face.
Things are looking grim: we get thrown out cars, assassinated for our kingdoms, drowned underwater, and struck out. If you’re scratching your head, don’t worry! Everything will make sense once you listen to this week’s podcast.
It’s a slightly more potty mouthed cast than usual, as Alice joins Peter, Kelley, Anna Marie and Chris to discuss what the cast has been playing for the week. Anna Marie’s 5-hour rule resurfaces and we explore what crazy black holes Chris has been down this week, alongside the news and your feedback.
There’s not a ton of news right now, which isn’t a big surprise considering the current challenges of making games. Instead we deep dive into our current games, with Jonathan, Josh, Kelley and Peter leading the charge. Anna Marie and Chris share hosting duties to wrap up this week’s panel.
We’re back with a juicy show to kick off May. Alex, Chris, Josh, and Kelley join host Anna Marie for a catch-up segment of what we’ve all been playing for the last two weeks. News of the last two weeks gets a little weird as games are being delayed left and right, yet Indivisible somehow gets released early? What a weird world we live in.
Alex, Josh, Kelley, and Peter join hosts Chris and Anna Marie for a lively show, but be warned: CONTAINS PERSONA 5 ROYAL AND FINAL FANTASY 7 REMAKE SPOILERS in the Now Playing section. Beyond that, the panel discusses news of the day, including the bizarre Cooking Mama drama. Hey, that rhymes!
Alex, Kelley, Nathan, and Peter have all descended into the slums of Midgar, so the Final Fantasy VII Remake dominates our Now Playing, but Anna Marie still manages to answer a question left over from last week about Persona 5 Royal. Our listeners recount their memories of the original FF7 and we even manage to squeak in some news of the week too.
We’ve let the boys sleep in this week! Alice, Anna Marie and Kelley rock the LadyCast this week, discussing their creepy Animal Crossing denizens, April Fool’s, which industry CEO is a giant jerk, and the big release of the month.
Peter, Kelley, Chris, and Anna Marie are joined by Alice this week; while she didn’t deliver any missiles, large robots may be a part of the podcast in unexpected ways! We discuss cheating on the stalk market, the news of the week, and your feedback. Now to wait for our copies of Persona 5 Royal to arrive…hurry up already!
Guest star Sam Watcher joins us, and that means this week’s podcast is officially explicit! Between the occasion cuss bomb, we discuss Animal Crossing and Chris’ poor decision making, Alex’s dive into Persona 5 Royal, and exactly why Kelley needs to finish FF7: Crisis Core in the near future. Anna Marie and Peter round out the ‘cast crew this week as we dive into the weekly headlines along with your feedback.
We’re all cooped up, but that doesn’t mean the video game news stops! Well, it actually was a little slimmer this week, but Anna Marie, Chris, Jonathan, Kelley, and Peter still have plenty of games to discuss. We also have an impromptu hand-washing sing-along?
We missed you all last week, but we’re back with a bunch of hot topics, including the FF7R demo, Dragon Quest of the Stars, and which alien Kelley got busy with in Mass Effect. Anna Marie gets really confused about review scores, and we can’t really decide when a Millennial starts and a Gen-X ends. Of course, none of that matters because Animal Crossing is almost here!
This RPG Cast was recorded in the dark before a dead studio audience. Josh fails at Fire Emblem. Jonathan becomes a rock star. Kelley pines for Garrus. Chris gets spooked. And Anna Marie harvests squid poop. Yeah it’s a weird show.
Anna Marie is finally back (and a little loopy on painkillers). There’s ample fawning for Mass Effect in our Now Playing, as Kelley chooses an unusual romantic encounter! Arguments break out over March and April’s packed release schedule, but a truce is eventually reached.
While you’re going to gaming jail, you’ll want to listen to our show so you know what games to bring with you. Fallout 76 has a new update, perhaps it’ll be a good choice for you. Phantasy Star Online 2 had a wonderful beta, maybe it’s the way to go. Unfortunately, Metal Max Xeno: Reborn was delayed so you’ll have to wait a bit for that one.
Today we learned that Pokémon Home may rival Kingdom Hearts for difficult to understand stories. The Switch is finally getting some Outer Worlds love. And Anna Marie passes a kidney stone. Well not live on the show or anything. I’m just really tired of waiting for this stupid stoooooh…we’re still recording? Um…enjoy the show everyone!
