004 – Fetch Quests

The RPG After Years

Welcome to Episode 004 of The RPG After Years! This week, we’re discussing fetch quests: why do they seem to be getting worse in modern games? Why so many? Is there such a thing as a good fetch quest?

  • What have the boys been playing? Scott has been playing a shit-ton of games this week, including Astral Chain and the Fire Emblem: Three Houses DLC! Rich is streaming FF14 and had an unfortunate experience with Alunda. Jay is still obsessed with Tales.
  • The Patreon is still going strong. You can get early access to episodes, ad-free episodes, lots of bonus episodes, live recording access, and access to the video version of the show; amongst many other benefits! patreon.com/rpgafteryears
  • News: Witcher 3 is still making bank with all its ports. Also, the Switch version got a major graphics upgrade!
  • News: The Final Fantasy VII Remake is HUGE–it takes over 100gb of space!
  • News: Coronavirus is affecting the games industry. Should we be worried?
  • News: Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is officially dead. Finally!
  • News: Atlus is teasing Persona 5 on Switch again. Also, there is some censorship in the upcoming Persona 5 Royal? We weigh in!
  • RPG releases: We go over all the recent and upcoming RPG releases!
  • The main discussion! What’s the deal with all the fetch quests? What are the the worst offenders?  Which RPG has the most?  What is the worst thing about fetch quests?  Should games have them in order to fill time or push the story?  Are they needed?
  • Our charity event, the Final Fantasy VII Materia Lockdown, is back! It will be launching March 3rd, so get ready to have your materia locked down! materialockdown.com
