March 28, 2020
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!
March 21, 2020
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.
March 14, 2020
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?
March 7, 2020
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!
February 22, 2020
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.
February 15, 2020
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.
February 8, 2020
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.
February 1, 2020
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!
January 26, 2020
Woop woop! Explicit alert! This get a bit unclean as we try to figure out our Game of the Year picks for 2019. We find out just what you can get done with slave labor. We learn the true martial power of haircuts. And we finally realize Anna Marie shouldn't be allowed to keep animals.
January 18, 2020
Whether it be about spanking sounds or male pasties, RPGamer has a long history of being an authoritative source of information. That said, we're still trying to figure out what version of EarthBound Kelley is playing.
January 11, 2020
It's Alice's first appearance of the decade! Ther crew is rounded out by Alex, Anna Marie, Chris, Kelley and Peter who are back to discuss your treasured memories of the last decade, as well as the news, reviews, and releases from the last few weeks. Wasn't there supposed to be a break from releases...?
January 4, 2020
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. *Note: RPG Cast 526 may not actually be better than any other previous RPG Cast.
December 14, 2019
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!
December 7, 2019
Alex, Johnathan, and Chris run through the past two weeks of news, bemoan the lack of time to play games, and then commit to not trying to play anything new. Ring Fit Adventure wins RPG of the year. But seriously, why isn't Shining Force II on that thing?
November 23, 2019
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?!
November 16, 2019
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.
November 9, 2019
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.
November 2, 2019
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.
October 26, 2019
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.
October 19, 2019
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.
October 12, 2019
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.
October 5, 2019
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.
September 21, 2019
HONK! This week’s RPGCast has almost everyone playing a different game. HONK! We also discuss plenty of news and your feedback. HONK!
September 14, 2019
What’s old is new again as we deep dive into WoW Classic and how the heck did we even get onto this topic again? News from TGS, what games you’re playing in September, and even more releases coming in the second half of the month, please pity our reviewers.
September 7, 2019
We're back from PAX and have forty impressions to share with you. We got a cat, Peter's getting a baby, Kelley's getting a vacation, Alice got a ring, and Alex got Musou-ed.
August 24, 2019
While Fire Emblem: Three Houses seems to finally be put aside by most folks, a few are still learning the dangerous pitfalls of gift giving. As usual, cats and Robin Williams are discussed. Then someone pre-orders Pantsu Hunter and someone else tries to shove CDs into an iPhone to get monsters.
August 17, 2019
Remember your lost days of innocence? Neither do we. Peter, Kelley, Josh, Matt, Chris, and Anna Marie all prove they shouldn't be trusted with a podcast this week. Then we investigate whether...oh no, look out! Fraulein!
August 10, 2019
We hope you’re not sick of Fire Emblem: Three Houses from last week, because we’ve got even more this episode. We discuss strategies for raising professor rank and recruiting, in case you need some tips. We also cover a variety of games and their official release dates. Finally, our briefs are more like long underwear this week.
August 3, 2019
Johnathan, Nathan, and Chris try to figure out the code running behind Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Yokai Watch is coming out again. China has a bunch of cool RPGs. And Persona 5 Royal leaks some more details!
July 27, 2019
Fire Emblem Three Houses released this week and we're (almost) all playing it - but there's a bit of controversy afoot. Pascal talks about poor choices he's made in other games. And the news section is all twisty, tumbly, and turvy. Now back to our respective waifus, husbandos, and depressing games...sos.
July 20, 2019
Chris got kicked off his own show this week to make room for a panel full to bursting with #JRPGJuly updates! Some are playing new games, some are playing old games, but let’s face it - everyone will be playing Fire Emblem next week.
July 13, 2019
We’re back from our mini-vacation and #JRPGJuly is in full swing. Now playing includes praise for Persona Q2, FF14, and Atelier Lulua. We're also impressed with how everyone agrees in the feedback section. Now I must go find Chris and comfort him as he laments Marle.
June 29, 2019
Anna Marie loses her mind as well as control of her mouth. Chris investigates the impacts of bringing Diet Coke into Mementos. Peter buys more games. Nathan finishes Final Fanatasy VIII just in time to start playing Final Fantasy VIII. And Kelley just tries to survive Bloodstained's framerate on the Switch.
June 22, 2019
A post-E3 slump won’t get this podcast down! The RPG Cast chats about Judgment, discusses what little news did trickle in during the week, and looks ahead to an exciting #JRPGJuly.
June 15, 2019
Goku got moves. Square Enix got the dollar bills. Keanu got a fandom. And you got a really long post E3 podcast. Now go teach those youngsters how the weapon triangle works.
June 8, 2019
Kelly commits fowl atrocities. Chris gets satisfied. Josh does a musical number. Pascal takes a cold steel shower. And Peter is streaming now at!
June 1, 2019
After the giant Show 500 last week, we’re back to a more normal format. A robust Minecraft discussion during Now Playing precedes news including first hints of things being shown at E3. We also discuss your feedback and this week’s releases include a game both Kelley and Anna Marie are very excited for!
May 25, 2019
Today we celebrate 500 episodes of fun with memories and clips you picked. While we don’t know why you keep listening, we’re sure glad that you do. Here’s to 500 more and our apologies that we still don’t have that dang horse for sale.
April 6, 2019
It's the final countdown! Chris and Anna Marie are joined by regular Kelley and irregular Jonathan, who always brings interesting games and hardware to discuss. April Fool's just passed, and several companies got silly. We also considered piles of feedback in the Question of the Week. We'll miss you all, see you in six weeks.
March 30, 2019
A party of four puts on our thinking hats, contemplating games we haven't played - and which we should tackle in a packed April. Surprise announcements and an interesting debate on old looking games versus classic feeling games. Yup, that's the RPGCast! Question of the Week Are you getting any of April's releases?
March 23, 2019
A slightly smaller show doesn't mean any less action, news, or hilariously questionable jibes for this week's RPGCast. We learn we cannot, in fact, git gud enough, so we're gonna go back to playing games with tutorials and a real sense of direction now. Thanks to listener DanielNL for his title suggestion this week! Question of the Week Do you play Switch docked, undocked, or both?
March 16, 2019
We're joined by a new staffer (Peter) this week for a HUGE cast! We set off a KEMCO alert with massively overpriced DLC, we're accidentally forgetting about pre-orders, and as if we didn't have enough upcoming games, NISA announced all the things. This was all prefaced by an extensive Now Playing section, so your dose of weekly silliness has arrived. Question of the Week What 3DS game would you like to see ported to Switch via an HD version?
March 9, 2019
We’re all coughing, sniffling, and feeling terrible, but we love you and still wanted to record our weekly podcast. Join us as we get simultaneously excited and confused about…well…everything going on in March? This is going to be a busy month for RPGamers!
March 2, 2019
This week's cast discusses what foibles can hold back a game, including not being able to connect and bad translations. We also dive into DLC discussions - some pretty cool, some late, and some just crazy expensive! Question of the Week What ONE game do you regret buying at full price and why?
February 23, 2019
You won’t get skunked this week with a full-fledged RPGCast! We dissect the recent Nintendo Direct (BOWSER IS TAKING OVER), discuss our Now Playing (with a love-hate CompileHeart relationship), and have a heavy dose of fun feedback.
February 9, 2019
It’s a cozy foursome on the RPGCast this week. Discussing the highs and lows of their now playing. But in the end, we are left wondering, what the heck is a “nursenary?”
February 2, 2019
So this is actually Episode 491 because "Game Of The Year" was 490. After the show, Anna Marie and Chris got Taco Bell. Johnathan got distracted from his review. Josh got arrested by the feds. And Alex got the worst punishment of all, more Kingdom Hearts.
February 1, 2019
It's time for way too many people to get on a Skype call and debate the following. How much is Wheels is wrong? What decade will the Final Fantasy VII remake will come out? And most importantly, what did we do to deserve Metal Max Xeno and The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2?
January 26, 2019
Before the rush of releases at the end of January, we talk about your feedback, our briefs turn into longer discussions, and we get really confused about a new...farming...eSport?!
January 19, 2019
A surprise disappointment in our Now Playing, a surprise announcement in the News, and Chris shouting ELDER SCROLLS really loudly in the briefs (and beyond) sum up this week's podcast. Please, someone get that man a donut. Question of the Week What are your thoughts on the Trails of Cold Steel III news?
January 12, 2019
This week's cast has Pascal and Johnathan discussing their holiday gameplay time as well as whether Octopath Traveler is worth a second look. Also, Chris gets really frustrated about Atelier games and Anna Marie gets really frustrated with Chris.
January 5, 2019
Welcome to the new year! We played a lot of games over the holiday break – some new, some old. We also talk about your gaming goals and two upcoming RPGamer features. Please be excited.
December 15, 2018
Happy Holidays! We wrap up the final podcast of the year affirming it's OK for Anna Marie to play casual games, even if Chris disagrees. While Josh and Kelley are making New Year's resolutions, Chris also disagrees about what should be a brief story. We'll see everyone in 2019!
December 8, 2018
Chris and Pascal fail at tactics. Josh gets some bartending skills. And actually that's it. Except for our new game coming to the Epic Games Store! No not really, but we were feeling left out.
December 1, 2018
The podcast goes a little potty-mouthed as Chris complains about waiting for his Christmas gift, Anna Marie complains about hard games, and we discuss the mess that is Fallout 76 (and its collector's edition). What a weird two weeks!
November 17, 2018
Two long-gone cast members return this week as we discuss Pokémon, a huge amount of FFXIV news, and some curious info about E3. It's way too early, but there it is. Happy Thanksgiving - we'll be back in two weeks.
November 10, 2018
Things go off the rail before we get to the meat of the show. But we pull it together to discuss what we've been playing, too many Compile Heart games, and a potential dungeon crawling disaster.
November 3, 2018
It's Extra Life 2018. As Chris repeatedly dies in Dark Souls III, we discuss Blizzcon and the first wave of upcoming November releases.
October 27, 2018
This week’s cast crew discusses realistic horse bits and their impact on the gaming world. We also tackle unusual stories like a long-awaited fan translation, and we begin to take bets on "who’s the daddy?" Also, Extra Life is next week! Get hyped! Sponsor Chris for Extra Life! Question of the Week What should we play during Extra Life? Doesn't have to be an RPG.
October 20, 2018
Technical snafus won’t get us down! Before our trip to Las Vegas we discuss how Chris really needs a Switch (but there’s no way he’s getting one) as well as cRPGs both modern and retro, as Jonathan joins the crew this week. Can you tell we lost half the audio?
October 13, 2018
This week’s cast discusses multiple Dragon Quests, a Dragon Quest mod for a non-Dragon Quest game, squishy things that aren’t Dragon Quest slimes, and many delays for games coming out…in Japan?
October 6, 2018
We return from a weekend off to discuss good games, bad games, old games, and new games that aren’t out yet! Anna Marie hosts as we tackle TGS, the continued flood of holiday releases, and numerous site features.
September 22, 2018
Chris is merely a man. If you prick him, does he not bleed? If you give him two awkwardly full bottles of soda, does he not spill them on his laptop and require an expensive repair? And if you give him a cup of coffee after that repair, does not his cat spill it on the same laptop and break it again? What? Oh, those last two aren't normal? Oh, I guess he is an idiot then.
September 8, 2018
If you're not too busy swinging through the streets, perfecting your armour, or exploring the Dreaming City we've got a new RPG Cast for you. And if the current fall lineup wasn't already overwhelming, then get ready for a long list of new titles announced or shown recently that are going to make you wonder how you can ever get caught up.
August 18, 2018
While Anna Marie, Chris, and Kelley play the new WoW expansion, Josh dabbles in film criticism. Then Nintendo has a Blizzard come in. Finally, some people decide to start dating inanimate objects.
August 11, 2018
Anna Marie randomizes my sock drawer. Kelley does some gardening. Johnathan gets drafted. And Chris goes on a road trip. A really really long road trip.
July 28, 2018
Shenmue III is still accepting backers. Fallout 76 is still something we don't understand. And Utawarerumono is still unpronounceable.
July 22, 2018
Armadillos that look like hedgehogs. Chocobos that cheat. Monsters that invade. And squirrels that ride cat skeletons. It's a really weird week. It also seems no one can agree on the best Tales game. Question of the Week Do you have a favorite Doctor Who doctor? Whom?
July 14, 2018
This show marked the beginning of the Donut Wars. Why they began, historians disagree. All that is known is that the destruction left in their wake had long lasting effects on humanity. No fewer than 30 species went extinct in the aftermath of the Wars. It is also widely believed that Strawberry Cream Cheese began his tyrannical rule directly due to the power vacuum the Wars left. Also, Shining Resonance Refrain is kind of not very good. Question of the Week? What modern Tales game should Paws play?
July 7, 2018
Chris loses a filling. Anna Marie steals the Switch again. Kelley loses a child. And Alex luvs the muv. No dogs were harmed in the filming of this podcast.
June 30, 2018
Anna Marie puts shirts on. Chris enters mania. Kelley needs a loot box. And you, dear listener, what are you playing? Oh yeah, that car is totally the Ghostbusters car.
June 23, 2018
Chris gets stared down by kangaroos while playing every game in existence. Anna Marie shows us her kangaskhan. Kelley does a blind taste test of demonic dungeon crawlers. And Josh leaves Japan and jets on down to Egypt. Question of the Week? Did you get anything in the Steam Sale, and how much have you spent total? How bad do you feel about this?
June 16, 2018
E3 had a bit of something for everyone. From Pokémon walking simulators to dragons who fetch bacon. But the true star of the show was you all along. Assuming you know how to queue properly, that is.
June 2, 2018
E3 is just around the corner, so everyone's working on their backlogs before the new stuff gets announced. There are predictions, Pokémon, and vague Fallout announcements. Then there is a memorial service for baby meowth. Question of the Week? What are your E3 predictions?
May 26, 2018
Josh goes through small spell caster based torment. Kelley awakens from a kitty coma. And Johnathan tries to talk Chris into playing Suikoden...again. This episode of RPG Cast will never be on Virtual Console. Question of the Week? How much do you care about digital retro games dying?
May 19, 2018
Anna Marie proves she's insane and tries to get Chris to start up a human breeding program to boot. We hear from people about the new sock. Josh tells us about a witch school. Also Kelley goes to Antarctica.
May 12, 2018
RPGamer is brand new, but does it do that woo woo circle thing? We find the answer to "What is the Dark Souls of Jurassic Park?" Someone loses a leg but still runs around headbutting enemies. And of course, we get baseball coaching lessons from a gangster.
April 21, 2018
While Johnathan defends his pride from Scar, Alex practices being Daduza. Christopher learns that it's hard work owning a TurboGrafx. Anna Marie, meanwhile, has been beating three games in the time it took you to read this.
April 7, 2018
While Chris is tempted by another physical collector's edition, Kelley drowns in chili dogs. Alice survives Mars and seems to enjoy FFXV to boot. Josh, meanwhile, wanders deep into the mired woods that is Witch and the Hundred Knight 2. We may not see him again.
March 31, 2018
Half the cast is embroiled in battles in another world. Half the cast got to the bottom of the case with Detective Pikachu. But one mystery is on everyone's mind. Why is Squall wearing shorts?
March 24, 2018
Chris gets beaten by a pickle. Anna Marie gazes into the rep grind. Kelley migrates to Ding Dong Dell. And Pascal's future is made of virtual reality. But really, Moon Child?
March 17, 2018
Anna Marie hosts this week's Cat Fancy, as the cast tries to figure out if touching girls is OK (we discover it isn't OK to touch underage girls in several countries, as one upcoming title gets refused ratings). Games come out, games get delayed, games change their name, and Josh really hopes an anime game doesn't suck for once. Chris' addiction to Monster Hunter continues unabated, and since it's getting a big update, it's probably not going to end any time soon. Don't forget to leave us an answer to our question of the week!
March 10, 2018
We return from the depths of kidney despair to bring you a fresh show. Chris's FFXI obsession has passed (for now). Kelley learns to Musou. Jonathan becomes a snobby retro collector. Joshua samples the VR sandwich. Alice blasts off into open space. And Anna Marie plays literally everything.
February 25, 2018
RPG Cast is back, if a little bit lighter. See what one plays when they have three weeks without work. See what happens when THQ becomes THQ again. See what happens when FFXV is on Windows. See what happens when Goofy is turned into a Cthulian horror. Actually don't see that one; you can't unsee it.
January 27, 2018
Lots of mechs today. Watch out that they don't break you. Were you a supporter of Obsidian's last kickstarter? See when you get your reward for being one of their pillars. Finally, see if there's a princely reception or pathetic squalor waiting for you in the Royal Edition of FFXV.
January 13, 2018
2018 is shaping up to be the year of catching up on 2017 games. Not a lot coming out this week to dissuade one from that opinion. Although, Switch owners may have some stuff to look forward to. And Pikachu fans get a special surprise.
January 6, 2018
It's a new year but it has the same old shenanigans. Not finishing games, PC hackers, getting distracted by shiny new toys, and Tarutaru addiction. So sit down, relax, make some tea, and warm up during the cold winter's chill by listening to this week's show. Maybe you can figure out how to get Chris to stop playing FFXI.
December 16, 2017
We have a pawsitively clawsome lineup for you today. Play with your furriends in a mew unexpected expansion. Enjoy a new title from the creators of the vaunted Clawout games. Finally, if you're feline behind in your backlog, now is the time for kitten caught up. Make your purrlans, beclaws 2018 is coming soon!
December 9, 2017
Chris struggles with grains. Anna Marie goes on a month long Final Fantasy journey. Pascal enjoys being called "commander." Kelley is underwhelmed by her 'mon. And Josh bravely undertakes the task of trying out Tokyo RPG Factory's next game.
December 2, 2017
Xenosaga Chronicles 2 is here. Did you get a switch just for it? Chris and Alex talk through their experiences. Johnathan, meanwhile, has been delving through ancient Bioware dungeons. Oh and I just remembered, we're getting Valkyria Chronicles 4.
November 18, 2017
Armadas of sheep, ragequitting farmers, warring ogres, and super powered raccoons are unleashed upon the world this holiday season. Will the heroes of RPGamer be able to stand against the Black Friday hordes? Will they succumb to the despair of multiple unfunded Kickstarters? Will Noctis just join the cast and fix everything?
November 11, 2017
Chris needs help with Xenoblade. Alice discovers something in deep space. Josh is finally free from the tyranny of Ireland. And Kelley exits a prison of dungeon crawling only to immediately get tossed into a new one.
October 28, 2017
I'll spare you the puns and just describe the show. We all want to play SMT and Dragon Quest games, but no one wants to play FFXIV DLC. The jury is still out on the upcoming portable Final Fantasy. In the meantime, donate to Extra Life and try not to fall asleep.
October 21, 2017
This week we discover that about 4000 horror RPGs are coming out in time for Halloween. We learn that Chris is once again bad at finishing games. We listen to Kelley fall back into WoW and Stardew addiction. We find Josh being pelted by Summon Night heroes falling from the heavens. And finally we take solace in Alex holding steady with yet another visual novel RPG. At least some things you can count on.
October 14, 2017
Real estate scandals, early DLC announcements, lootbox gambling, and golf rap battles are some of this week's controversies. Also, Joshua Carpenter makes his first RPG Cast appearance. Welcome him like you'd welcome Chris. No wait, welcome him better than you'd welcome Chris.
October 7, 2017
At some point Chris dropped a keyboard on the floor during this show and lost a tilde key. Anna Marie lost her mind trying to keep up on all the new releases. And Kelley lost so many socks. So so many socks stolen by wicked feline thieves.
September 30, 2017
This week I have a challenge for you. Yes, you, the person reading this description. Call our voicemail at 608-729-4098 and leave a message about our question of the week. For each call I get, I'll donate $5 to our Extralife fund this year. Unless someone makes some crazy auto call bot and spams 10,000 calls. Don't get any ideas now!
September 23, 2017
As we acknowledge our robot overlords, we also listen to all the new stuff coming out of Japan. There's mechs, monsters, Chobobros, and deformed amazons. What else can you ask for? What? No, there was no FFVII remake news. Ok, stop asking about that.
September 16, 2017
Chris commits sins originally. Anna Marie reminisces about PAX. Kelley hunts monsties and travels octagonally. Alex is still searching for Ray Romano. And Pascal, sadly, seems to lack determination. It's all good though, since it sounds like everyone will finally get an NES Classic.
September 9, 2017
PAX is history but Chris is still feeling the siren's call of some of its best games. Alice is busy fending off aliens and hedgehogs. Meanwhile, Alex is neck deep in Otome byproduct. Which is probably illegal. Or at least it should be.
