Axe of the Blood God: Breath of the Wild Champions' Ballad DLC, Kat Plays Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and More

PODCAST | Recapping Zelda's big night at The Game Awards, Kat's initial experiences with Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and more.

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), Nadia and I recap Zelda's big night in The Game Awards, and I talk about my initial experiences with Xenoblade Chronicles!

I always try to play at least a little bit of a big RPG, even if it's not really my jam. Happily, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has proven easy to enjoy.

In the pod, I talk about my experiences in the first couple chapters, how I'm finding the systems, and more. Also: The surprise release of the Champions' Ballad DLC! Romancing Saga 2! And NieR Automata!

Show Description

Kat and Nadia team up to talk about the week's biggest RPG news as the bid farewell to Demon's Souls, discuss Bungie's decision to throttle XP gain in Destiny 2, and Final Fantasy XV's ongoing run of DLC. Then they turn to the main topic: Xenoblade Chronicles 2 [22:52] Is the gameplay really too complicated? Are Blades slaves or friends? And what is going on with Pyra? Nadia and Kat cover all that and more in their review. Finally, Kat checks in with an update with Secret of Mana Report #3! [58:56].
