The RPG Backtrack takes some lengthy strolls down memory lane to recall RPGs from the recent past all the way back to yesteryear. Co-hosts Kelley Ryan and Matt Masem lead a raucous group of panelists who all bring opinions both positive and negative to each week’s discussion.

RPG Backtrack 241 – Dadga’s Dogma

On today’s Backtrack, we talk about the finer points of exterminating deities in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo. Join us along with guests Anna, Cassandra, and David while we take a deep dive into Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse.

RPG Backtrack 236 – Action Jensen

It’s time to break out the oil cans and question our humanity.  We’re talking about Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (with a little bit of Human Revolution thrown in) on this week’s episode of RPG Backtrack, featuring guests Josh and Sam.

RPG Backtrack 233: 35 Goo-d Years

A podcast draws near!  Command? Join us with guests Cassandra Ramos and Andy as we celebrate Dragon Quest’s 35th birthday.  Needless to say, the game had a bit of an influence on all of our lives. 

RPG Backtrack 229: For the Gravy!

For anyone who couldn’t get enough job hats, Square Enix delivers with a sequel to its weirdly-named “Not Final Fantasy” for the 3DS. Join us along with guests Cassandra Ramos and Alex Fuller as we dive into Bravely Second: End Layer.

RPG Backtrack 228: Hedgehog Age

BioWare was on top of the world in the late 2000s. Then it got the bright idea to make a portable game with a certain blue hedgehog, and the internet rejoiced… or did it?

RPG Backtrack 226: Sim City Evermore

Bandai Namco surprised us with a sequel to its team-up with Studio Ghibli. Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom is a little less Ghibli than we would like, but guests Chris and Anna Marie Privitere still joined us to talk about how to make Evermore great again.

RPG Backtrack 225: A Frozen Tangled Toy Story

Like many games before it, Kingdom Hearts was a series that had trouble getting to three.  Join us along with guests David McBurney, Ryan McCarthy, and Shannon Harle, as we discuss the long-awaited third entry in the beloved Disney RPG mash-up!

RPG Backtrack 224: Slimecraft

What happens when Japan’s most popular RPG decides to mimic the world’s most popular sandbox game? Find out along with guests Robert Albright and Anna Marie Privitere as we mine some slimes and craft a castle or two!

RPG Backtrack 223: Blade-y Driver

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was one of the first major RPGs for the Nintendo Switch (if you don’t count Breath of the Wild).  Does it live up to the legacy of the Xeno series? Join us along with guests Alex Fuller and Michael Apps as we dive into the Cloud Sea!

RPG Backtrack 222: Third Trail’s a Charm!

The last game in the Trails in the Sky trilogy took 10 years to come to the United States. That’s a long wait! At least you don’t have to wait that long for us to talk about it. Join us as one long-time host says goodbye, and two new hosts take the helm along with some familiar friends to discuss Trails in the Sky the 3rd.
