Bravely Default II Review

A totally new cast arrives in the third game in the Bravely series. Attempting to recapture the nostalgia of a bygone era, it defaults to some tropes while being largely successful in updating a classic job system.

RPG Cast – Episode 590: “Get Back in the House, Yona!”

Joshua asks “Am I fighting a house?!” (spoilers: he is). Chris is on the wrong side of 40, and somehow forgets JRPGJuly. Kelley espouses “Exposure: The Cryptocurrency of Artists.” Anna Marie is teaching the whole RPGamer staff how to speedrun FF4: Free Enterprise. Yes, things got a little…weird this week.

RPG Cast – Episode 580: “Marshmallow Is Canon”

It’s just the core trio this week, as Chris tosses a coin to his hunting horn partner Kelley, and Anna Marie rolls her eyes as Chris cracks terrible jokes about what the Vita really means. We all consider MiHoYo’s bottom line, as well as whether we’re classified as normies.

It’s a slightly quieter week after the mass dump of games that was February and the first week of March. Kelley doesn’t want her mom to think she’s watching hentai, while Anna Marie insists our reviewers don’t hate every game. Josh will one day be free of the epic grip of Cold Steel IV, but not before Chris convinces him if he just lifts a truck, he can find a new orbment.
