050 – What IS an RPG?

Welcome to Episode 050 of The RPG After Years! This week, Scott, Jay, and Rich debate what makes a game an RPG!

  • Time to catch-up! What have the boys been planning? Rich and Jay have been going ham on various Tales of games. Rich also finally got to play Legend of Legaia. Scott has been all over the place with starting up his Twitch channel: Hollow Knight, Pokemon, Hyrule Warriors, and more! Jay has been absorbed into Trails of the Sky and Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

  • The RPG After Years is hosting an RPG Club! Think of it like a book club, but for RPGs. The NieR: Automata club has finished up, and nominations have wrapped up! Voting will be going on all week.
  • In the news: Square Enix has trademarked “Ever Crisis” and “The First Soldier.” Fierce speculation ensues.
  • In the news: A Zelda: Ocarina of Time beta build has leaked!!
  • In the news: Cyberpunk 2077 continues to be mired in controversy!
  • In the news: various games have been given release dates, including Trails of Cold Steel IV, New Pokemon Snap, and POSSIBLY Project Athia!
  • Main Discussion: Just what is an RPG? The boys debate back and forth, and Scott reveals his special formula to scientifically determine how much of an RPG any given game is. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VDxRliDj5q8q0BJhf-eFRa_VnbCqYisV/view?usp=sharing
