Alright folks, it’s out so it’s time to feel out if the Dexit folks were right or wrong. We also hear about Path of Exile 2 and more RPG news than you’d expect at this time of year. But let’s be honest, we just want to go back to leveling up our starters.

We figured it would be a short show because there’s not a lot of news this time of year. Turns out Alex, Kelley, Peter, Chris, and Anna Marie still had plenty to discuss with their now playing, your feedback, and the upcoming releases including Pokémon.
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.
Jonathan crashes the RPGCast this week because he heard that Chris, Anna Marie, Kelley, Peter, and Nathan were dissing on Tactics Ogre. We also discuss child care our Now Playing. But don’t worry, while the news is slim, it’s also pleasantly robust.
Not much news, but there are many games out this week. We won’t play any of them though. Alice is on about Space Station 13, Kelley re-upped World of Warcraft, Anna Marie is playing Dragon Quest III, and Chris is still playing Final Fantasy IV.
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.
Welcome to week two of #JRPGJuly! We have some newcomers, as well as sentai rangers! The fun never stops when you are chasing wigs and scoring big.
The first week of #JRPGJuly is in the books. Let’s see how things are starting out for the RPGamer staff with their chosen games.
With an engaging battle system, deeply customizable job system, and beautiful visuals and graphics, Octopath Traveler has a lot of wonderful parts. Does the total game exceed the sum of those parts or somehow fall short?
It’s the end of May and Whatcha Playing is back to round up the games our staff is currently hooked on. Lots of monster collecting is going on between Yo-kai Watch and Pokémon: Let’s Go while South Park, RPG Maker, and Moero Chronicle Hyper are all competing for staffers’ game time.
The JRPG legacy is synonymous with experimentation; even the most fondly-remembered titles, upon more frank inspection, reveal themselves as unique if not downright bizarre. How did this tradition begin, and where has it run off to?
A PC release of popular Switch RPG Octopath Traveler has been formally announced. The June 7 release on Steam will feature achievements, dual audio, and full controller support.
Square Enix has announced a free-to-play mobile prequel to Octopath Traveler. Champions of the Continent will use many of the same elements as the original Switch release and is coming to Japan this year.
In RPGs, there are often two distinct yet important parts: a story to entertain and gameplay mechanics to engage the player. Octopath Traveler has Joshua questioning just how much he values those individual parts.
July is over so it’s time for the last JRPG July update. This week Final Fantasy XV, Tokyo Xanadu, Zwei, Octopath Traveler, and Radiant Historia get their final due from our writers.
Many RPGamers have been waiting for Octopath Traveler to release and that time has now arrived. A final launch overview trailer is here to highlight the game’s basics, with a couple of extra tidbits also revealed.
It’s time for #JRPGJuly again and the RPGamer staff are back playing a whole host of different games for the occasion. Join in the discussion all month long. So what JRPGs are you playing?
After E3 2018 dropped a handful of new RPGs for Switch, we thought it might be a good time to look at some of the games coming to the platform. Here’s a brief glance at twenty RPGs hitting the system within the next year.
In an interview with Dengeki Online, two of Octopath Traveler’s developers revealed a few small details about the game. Game length and lack of DLC were amongst the things mentioned.
Another RPG received some attention from Nintendo’s Treehouse Live show. Those interested can check out some footage of Octopath Traveler before trying out the prologue demo, which is available now.
