Axe of the Blood God Episode 25: Lots and Lots of RPGs (And Metal Gear)

Steve Tramer returns to talk Shadowrun Hong Kong and the delay of Persona 5, with Kat musing on Xenoblade Chronicles X and ranting about Destiny: The Taken King.

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), Steve Tramer returns to talk about the Persona 5 delay (sigh) and Shadowrun: Hong Kong, while I rant about Destiny: The Taken King and other subjects. Oh, and we talk a bit about Metal Gear Solid V. Yeah, yeah, I know it's not an RPG.

Apologies of this episode rambles a tiny bit. There have been quite a few RPGs coming out over the past few months; and even with Persona 5 now off the table until 2016, there are still several more to come. The episode ends up becoming a bit of a fall preview, so if you're wondering what to look forward to in terms of RPGs, wonder no longer!
