There sure are a lot of great RPGs on the Switch lately. Seriously. The deluge won't stop. I've begged it to stop for even a minute, but to no avail. I need to breathe, damn it. Let me breathe.
Ahem. Doubtlessly developers and RPG fans have adopted the Switch as their platform of choice because RPGs are long, rambling games that are beautifully suited for playing in handheld mode. But then, that's always been the case, hasn't it? With Kat out of the picture this week (she'll be back, I promise), Eric and I talk about the history of handheld RPGs starting with the Game Boy, and exchange some of our favorites.

What's better than an RPG? An RPG you can stuff in your pocket and tote around like a designer dog. (Please do not shove tiny dogs into your pockets.) With Kat overseas taking care of Big Editor Things for the site this week, Nadia teams up with Eric to discuss the beauty of portable RPGs, and talks about some of their favorite handheld adventures. Also in this episode: The Grandia HD Collection is getting a big patch, and Eric gives his in-depth impressions of GreedFall.
