Axe of the Blood E3 2019 Reaction Pod: Final Fantasy 7 Remake Hype, Keanu Reeves in Cyberpunk, and More!

Nadia and Kat react to all the biggest RPG news for E3 2019!

The moment has finally arrived: Final Fantasy 7 Remake has a release date, and oh man does it look awesome [download link here]!

In the immediate aftermath of Square Enix's E3 2019 Press Conference (we seriously jumped on the mics as soon as it was done), Nadia and I react to everything we saw, including the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Final Fantasy 8 getting remastered, the weirdly flat Avengers reveal, and more. Suffice it to say, we're really excited about Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Like, really excited.

And that's not all! There was quite a bit of other RPG coverage at the other conferences as well. Nadia and I talk Microsoft's disappointing next-gen announcement, Cyberpunk 2077 stealing the show with Keanu Reeves, and Fallout 76's slow revival. And there's plenty more E3 2019 coverage besides that. Check it out!
