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), Mike joins Kat to talk about the Disgaea series, the challenges facing NIS, and what he likes to see in a good strategy RPG
Along the way, we kind of realize that there's been a fair number of good strategy RPGs over the past few years, including the criminally underrated Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars for the Nintendo 3DS (no, really, it's great!). Mike is very partial for this genre, so it's great to hear his thoughts on Disgaea in particular, a cult favorite that tends to be overlooked by the mainstream press these days. You can read his review of Disgaea 5 here.
