We're going back to the '90s again here on Axe of the Blood God, but here's a twist: We're going back to '90s Japan. Yes, it's another PC Console Quest, and we've invited our good friend PC98 Audi back to the show for the occasion. We discuss the PC-98's legacy, and how it affected '90s RPG development. Why did the platform have so many visual nove…
 
Hannah continues to have weird food opinions. Ben has learned the joy of drinking out of mason jars. Kylie is only there for a moment but she really makes a SPLASH. Hannah didn't have an obsession this week so she ceded her time to a listener email (shoutout to surprise asynchronous guest Sam!) Erin has been watching a drama-filled docuseries about…
 
We may be in the dead of winter, but Axe of the Blood God is hotter than ever. So sayeth the show's fans, anyway. It's true! No word of a lie! Ahem.

Emphasis on "new" Final Fantasy XIV's produ…

Sorry this is out a little late and also sorry no book club again! This has been a very distractible couple of weeks for Hannah! Everyone is under the influence of something this week.

We're already three days into 2022! No refunds on the year, suckers.

Let's start the year strong with some spicy 2022 RPG predictions! Wil…
 
NOTE: No Book Club this week- Hannah ran out of time. We're back after another impromptu break for the Holidays! Thanks for your patience. Hannah has a new wood stove and it is smokin'!

This week on Axe of the Blood God, Kat, Nadia, and Eric say farewell to 2021 by looking back on the year's greatest RPG triumphs (and a few, er, not-triumphs). 2021 was a bit slim on major triple-A RPG releases, but there's been a great showing from smaller games, including SMT V, Tales of Arise, Monster Hunter Stories 2, Loop Hero, Ys 9, and so ve…

"Live thy life to the fullest, but knowest thou always that the end walks ever closer." Is that an OK Urianger impersonation? Bah, whatever.

Kat's away this week on Axe of the Blood God, so Nadia takes the reigns, and chaos reins. Wait. Strike that. Reverse it. Thank you.

The trio have a hearty discussion about LGBTQ+ representation in games, old and new, eastern and west…

When we last met our Warriors of Light, they were confident they'd be Thal's balls-deep in Endwalker by this point. Fate had other plans in mind, as Endwalker won't be accessible until December 3. Hey, Final Fantasy XIV is a Square Enix RPG. It's never a surprise when the heroes' plans go awry in an RPG. Besides, the delay freed up some time to let…

Well I'll tell you what, that daggum Kat recently got herself in a whole heap of Twitter trouble when she sassed Legend of Dragoon. On this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God, Kat apologizes for her sharp words -- but she also struggles to understand why half the internet is still nostalgic for this underachieving Sony RPG. To that end, Kat, Er…

Axe of the Blood God gets sPooOoOoky this week as Kat, Nadia, and Eric talk about "creepypasta" RPGs.
