Axe of the Blood God 109: Nadia and Kat Gab About the RPGs at E3 2017

PODCAST | Contrary to what Kat believed, E3 2017 was rich with RPGs coming out this year. Nadia never doubted, though. Nadia's perfect.

Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey and Nadia Oxford. You can find the previous episodes here.

In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God (download link here), Kat and Nadia talk about the wealth of RPG riches E3 2017 dished unto us. A Xenoblade Chronicles 2 release date – for this year! Confirmation of a Pokémon game for the Switch! And so much more!

Kat and Nadia scrape up what's left of their E3-addled brains to give RPG fans some good news: This year's RPG release schedule isn't looking barren after all. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is coming before the holiday season, which prompts Nadia and Kat to reminisce about Xenoblade in general (this is the Monado's power!!). They also talk about other RPGs that made an appearance, including Anthem, Yakuza 6, Etrian Odyssey V, and tons more.
