If you read my Valkyria Chronicles 4 review from last week, you'll know that I'm fairly positive about it. Nadia and I delve into the battle system, the cast, and how it compares to the original game, plus how it looks on the Nintendo Switch. Don't worry, we won't have any spoilers, per usual.

Also in this episode: Chris Avellone talks Pathfinder: Kingmaker, Fallout 2, and the current state of RPG writing. It's a wide ranging interview, and a very fun one if you're an RPG fan. Check it out!
