Axe of the Blood God: We Pick the Fall 2017 RPGs We're Looking Forward to Most

South Park! Divinity: Original Sin! Xenoblade Chronicles 2! Kat and Nadia pick the RPGs they're looking forward to most this fall.

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), we dive into the RPGs that are coming out this fall. Xenoblade Chronicles 2! Pokemon! South Park! We've got them all covered.

Alas, we did not get a chance to chat about the news of the Secret of Mana remake, which dropped after we finished our recording. But if you want a preview, here's Nadia's take on it. Otherwise, we mostly focus on RPGs that are just around the corner, including Divinity Original Sin 2 and South Park: The Fractured But Whole. Nadia and I countdown the most intriguing RPGs of the fall and pick our favorites!

Also in this episode: More RPG parties! Thanks for all the great comments from those of who listened to the episode. It was a fun exercise, and hopefully we can do it against sometime!

Now here's a poll for our intrepid listeners: What should our next report be? Should we dive into Witcher 3? Wait for Divinity: Original Sin 2? We want your thoughts!
