This Week In SwitchRPG History is a weekly series which will take a look back in time at the topics and conversations we had in years past.
Welcome back to another This Week In SwitchRPG History! This week in 2018 brought forth two reviews – Battle Chasers and Saturday Morning RPG – a new podcast episode, and a weekend gaming playlist. Check it out!
Saturday Morning RPG Review
Remember being much younger and being excited for your favorite day of the week? Cartoon day. Saturday. You know what I’m talking about – those shows you waited all week for that, looking back, were totally cheesy but so so good. Yeah, those. If you’re itching for a bit of that experience as an adult, buckle up because Saturday Morning RPG from Mighty Rabbit Studios doesn’t just drive down memory lane, it fast tracks you down memory lane like it’s a freeway.

Weekend Gaming Playlist
Well welcome back to the weekend, folks! For some of us, this weekend will be a bit extended thanks to a holiday, so for that, I’m thankful. And on top of that, my work just switched to our summer hours, so I now work four long days instead of five normal ones. What does this mean? A four day weekend! That being said, I will be enjoying a lot of gaming time, and I’m super excited. What will I be playing? You might be surprised. Read more…
I hope you have enjoyed this step back into the vault of SwitchRPG content! Stay tuned next week for more!
