Hello everyone, welcome to episode 176 of the LitRPG podcast. For the full show notes visit us at:

I’m Ramon Mejia. I’m here to bring you the latest LitRPG news, reviews, and author interviews.  I have a shorter show this week because I’m recording earlier than normal. I have 4 new reviews just for you.

New Releases and Reviews:

The Scared But Willing (08:43)

From the author of the Dream trilogy. Less military, more RPG fantasy, still has good action and group fighting.

Score: 7.2 out of 10

Steel Orc: Player Reborn (A LitRPG Adventure) (19:19)

Beginning is hard to get through, but has good crafting focus mid story, and action ending.

Score: 7.6 out of 10

Villainess Life: A LitRPG Supervillain Novel (22:15)

Boring super villain stuff, boring RPG stuff

Score: 5 out of 10

Eight-Bit Bastards: Level One (25:37)

Funny, nostalgia based, 8 bit fun. Minimal RPG stuff.

Score: 7.4 out of 10
