Retro Encounter 167: A Thirst For Battle Part I
We are strong / No one can tell us we're wrong
12.20.18 - 11:13 PM

The Retro Encounter panel's original plan was to record a single episode about battle systems in RPGs, but there ended up being so much to discuss that we're splitting it into two episodes. Today we focused on turn-based combat, from the earliest Japanese RPGs through grid-based systems to whatever the hell Final Fantasy XII is. So check the attacks queue, wait your turn, and strike that episode link!

Tonight's all right for fighting in today's episode of Retro Encounter!

Featuring: Michael Sollosi, Trent Argirov, Greg Delmage, Peter Triezenberg
