The RPG After Years

Welcome to Episode 1 (!!!) of the official podcast relaunch: We are now The RPG After Years! We will be covering all things RPGs from the oldschool retro classics to the modern age. And our topic this week is fitting: we will be discussing the merits of each of our favorite “Golden Years” gameS–anything from the PS2/Gamecube/XBox age and prior, and our favorite “After Years” game… everything after that!
