Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey. You can find the show notes for previous episodes here.
In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God (download link here), Rowan Kaiser returns to talk about what RPGs he's playing and answer YOUR questions. Yes, it's late July, so it must be time for a mailbag episode.
We cover a bunch of items in this episode, including our favorite RPG soundtracks, our thoughts on the viability of Japanese RPGs on console, and the classic desert island question (bet you can't guess my answer... no seriously). We also discuss the recent Hearthstone news, MMORPGs, and the surprisingly foundational role WarCraft III has played in it all.
Rowan also writes about RPGs and other topics for GamesBeat, where he recently wrote about the state of action RPGs. He also contributed this glorious rewatch of Babylon 5 for The AV Club, which is worth reading for the comments alone if you're a fan of the show.

Rowan Kaiser returns to talks about what he's playing lately and answer questions from the mailbag. What's our favorite RPG soundtrack? Do JRPGs have a future on console? We (mostly) answer these questions and more.
