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), Elliot Gay shares his initial thoughts on Bravely Second, as well as his perspective on what people are playing in Japan (Spoiler: People over there really love Yokai Watch).
Okay, the real reason I invited Elliot on the show is because he knows quite a bit about the Super Robot Wars series, which definitely comes up during the conversation. What can I say, it's nice not having to pitch people on the series every time it comes up in conversation. Dense robot conversation incoming!
I also brought Elliot on the show because he's been living in Japan for about six years now — he arrived about the time that he left — and is thus a bit more plugged into the gaming scene over there than I am these days. Of course, the more things change, the more things stay the same. Handhelds continue to dominate, and the PlayStation 4 hasn't been able to do much more than scuffle along. But hey, it's nice to hear the Vita is doing okay over there!
When you're finished listening to the show, we'd love to hear your thoughts. If you want to talk about Bravely Second, Super Robot Wars, or just RPGs in general, drop a line in the comments below.
