It's down to a pair this week, as Kat and Eric gather to investigate the state of Cyberpunk 2077 with its brand-new next-gen patch and lament the loss of more eShop content. Make sure you get your Golden Sun downloaded while you still can, as two visions of the cyber-future both seem bleak. They also dive into the overlap of grand strategy and RPGs, thanks to Blood God backer Ruka!  
In other happenings: 
  • Eric learns to loathe the grind in Monark 
  • Kat is figuring out her feelings on Horizon 
  • Nadia isn't even here and the Nostalgia Nook still takes a dark turn

There are people out there who hang onto news about Nintendo Directs the way a religious person might fervently cling to signs of Jesus' return. Humanity is still waiting on the second coming of the Lord, but Nintendo offered a nice stop-gap last week. The February Nintendo Direct was bursting with incredible RPG news—and some of it was simply bananas. A 2D HD remake of Live A Live? Absolutely nobody had that on their Bingo card. Well, it's doubtful anyone had "Kirby inhales objects bigger than your mom in Kirby and the Forgotten Land" either. To reiterate a point made earlier, it was a strange Direct.

In addition to the Nintendo Direct RPG news, we talk about:

  • Nadia is bad at Final Fantasy Tactics
  • Waddle Dee broke the internet news machine wide open
  • Lost Ark is already huge — can it keep up that momentum?
  • More RPG nominations for the 25 Best RPGs of All Time Intergrade
  • If we get to $8000 per month, Nadia and Eric's dads will fight each other
  • $10,000, and we'll make it to the death

Kat's gone, so Eric and Nadia assemble an Elite 4 to review Pokemon Legends: Arceus. IGN's Rebekah Valentine and Fanbyte's Kenneth Shepard join the show to chat about how the new direction has panned out, its highs and lows, and how it embraces Poke-mythology. Will this be remembered as a trailblazer or an obscure side game? Either way, we never want to see Cherubi again.

Also in this episode:
- A Realm Reborn struggle is real
- We sing some Phantom of the Opera?
- Eric craves curling
- Nadia recounts crime
- New Top 25 entries and the reveal of a new tactic-ful February special!
