The life of a Trails fan requires patience, with the wait for Trails of Cold Steel III being the latest test of that patience. Fortunately, it’s an experience that’s worth the wait, even if it ultimately leads to a bit more waiting.

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!

PC RPGamers awaiting the release of Trails of Cold Steel III can now get a taste of the game. A demo is now available on Steam, with NIS America also announcing a limited edition for the PC version.

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.
NIS America has good news for those who have been waiting to experience the latest chapter of Trails of Cold Steel. Two new trailers confirm releases and features for upcoming PC and Switch versions.
We’re back and better* than ever! On this special episode of the RPGCast we do a deeper dive into what we’ve been playing and discuss our holiday hauls.

It’s the final podcast of the decade! Alex, Anna Marie, Chris, Kelley and Peter end the year with a bang…and maybe a whimper too. News, your lists of top DS games, and what we’re going to play to ring in the new year. See you in 2020!

We’re all Pokécrazy this week, with Alex, Anna Marie, Chris, Kelley and Peter all discussing their Pokétales and where the series could go moving forward. Josh is the odd man out, but he’s got interesting demos to share instead, so it’s cool. Wait, wasn’t this supposed to be a short show?!
This week, Anna Marie is so excited about Blizzcon that she totally forgets the order of the show! Chris, Kelley, Peter, and Josh somehow still cover what we’re playing, news, and new releases…eventually, anyways.
Nihon Falcom’s The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is out now for PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe. Now there’s just the small matter of waiting for Trails of Cold Steel IV.
This week, Alex and Anna Marie can talk about their embargoed games, Peter finishes a game, and Chris worries about his cats. Kelley’s question of the week leads us down rabbit holes we probably shouldn’t have explored, but we’re doing it live and that’s how we roll.
While Chris destroys Anna Marie’s right joycon (press R to pay respects), the rest of the cast discusses their now playing, the news of the week, and there are still far too many games releasing every week. Please save us.
