Summary

On this episode of Random Encounter:

- E3 2018 has come and gone. We wrap up our final thoughts on the show with some input from the folks who couldn't attend the show in person.
- Octopath Traveler is so close! Alana dishes on the preview she wrote after spending a few hours with the game, and the rest of us generally gush.
- Xenoblade Chronicles 2's most substantial piece of DLC to date, an arena mode featuring Shulk and Fiora from Xenoblade Chronicles 1, had a surprise release during E3. How is it?
- Ys VIII is out for Switch, and in case our three reviews on the site aren't enough, we engage in a little more discussion of this excellent title with a messy patch history.
- Caitlin gives us the lowdown on two Western titles centered around player choice: the bloody Vampyr and not-so-bloody Detroit: Become Human.
- Shining Resonance Refrain is out...today, actually! Alana's preparing to write her review and shares her initial impressions.
- It's a good time for retro JRPGs ending in the number two, apparently. Alana and Sollosi jump back in time and space to Star Ocean 2 and Lunar 2, respectively.
- Fenner is back with the lowdown on another weirdo niche game with a super-cool premise: The Friends of Ringo Ishikawa!

Featuring: Caitlin Argyros, Alana Hagues, Derek Heemsbergen, Mike Sollosi, Robert Fenner
