Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey. You can find the previous episodes here.
In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God (download link here), Nadia and I share our impressions of Fire Emblem: Shadows of Valentia, then welcome Cosmic Star Heroine creator Robert Boyd to talk about the trials and travails of creating his latest RPG.
Cosmic Star Heroine, unfortunately, has been trapped under the shadow of Persona 5, but it's still a really nice RPG by the people who brought us Cthulhu Saves the World and the third and fourth Penny Arcade games. We talk with Boyd about its design, its lovely pixel art, and the hurdles he and his team faced in building an all-new engine.
Also in this episode: Shadows of Valentia impressions! Also, it's the penultimate Persona 4 Golden Report, where we finally unmask the true culprit behind all the killings in Inaba!
