Welcome to Postgame, Sidequest’s monthly podcast where the editors lay down hot takes on cold games.
In our first episode, we consider narrative cohesion in Final Fantasy VII Remake, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Persona 5 Royal, and Red Dead Redemption 2. Please note: we curse in this podcast.
BIG spoilers for Red Dead Redemption 2 start at around 33:05, or when Melissa says “Fast forward to Act 3.” They pretty much go through the end of the pod.
Melissa was mistaken about the way that the mission that causes the above spoilers works. In actuality, the game will force you to do the mission by starting it automatically when you enter camp after a certain point.
