Hello and welcome to another Side-Quest episode of Talk This! It’s Dangerous to Podcast Alone. On these episodes, we talk about what games we’ve been playing over the past couple of weeks. This episode, it’s all about tone balancing, easy tactics, overlevelling, character confusion, and the latest adventures of Champ McDude, Phantom Thief.
Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright
Birthright is the easiest of the three Fates timelines. It follows your avatar after they choose to side with their blood family in Hoshido- Ryoma, Hinoka, Sakura, and (ugh) Takumi. Collect Hoshidan units, train them up, marry them off, and then abandon them for their much stronger babies. Enjoy this gentle, straightforward journey, then jump into Conquest where you will cry tears of sheer frustration forever.
Iconoclasts is a action platformer made by one guy named Joakim “Konjak” Sandberg for PC, Mac, Playstation 4, and Playstation Vita. Play as Robin, a helpful but unlicensed mechanic, living in a world governed by the Concern and ruled by a being called Mother. After Robin is caught by the Concern, she must gain allies and fight back against the oppressive regime. Also she must figure out how to work elevators. Oh gosh, that stupid elevator.
Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep
Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep is an action JRPG developed by Square Enix for the PSP, later releasing for the Playstation 4 as part of the Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix Collection. Birth by Sleep takes place ten years before the first game in the Kingdom Hearts series. Players must complete three storylines, taking on the role of best friends Terra, Ventus (call me Ven!), and Aqua. However, only tragedy awaits all three of them.
Persona 5 is the latest in the high school-set spin-off series from Atlus’s Shin Megami Tensei games. Take on the role of a Phantom Thief- Joker, also known as Ren Amamiya or whatever you choose to call him (Champ McDude for instance). Attend classes, make friends, and prepare for your future all while taking down corrupt adults through changing their hearts in a place called the Metaverse.
