Axe of the Blood God Interviews The Outer Worlds Developers Leonard Boyarsky and Nitai Poddar

And we review the game too!

The Outer Worlds is officially out, and we're devoting the entire episode to Obsidian's brand new RPG [download link here]!

First, Mike Williams joins me to talk about his review. We go over the companions, the battle system, whether the comparisons to Fallout: New Vegas are fair, and what it could mean for the future of the series. You can find his full review here.

In the second part, I talk to developers Leonard Boyarsky and Nitai Poddar about the Outer Worlds' development. It's a fun conversation covering its design, Boyarsky's thoughts on the Megaton quest in Fallout 3, and much more. Make sure to check it out!
