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), I'm joined by Caty and Mike to discuss meaningful endings in RPGs! Also, I share my Ni No Kuni 2 impressions, and we talk Yakuza 6!
This discussion originally grew out of my fear of getting the "bad ending" in Witcher 3. But it eventually grew to a wide-ranging talk in which we broke down the endings in Mass Effect 3, Witcher 3, and Dragon Age Origins (among others); talked about making meaningful decisions in RPGs, and discussed how we roleplayed those decisions. Sticking the landing in an RPG is quite tough, especially when a lot of moving parts at play. We talk about all the ways that can affect an RPG's story.
Kat is joined by guest hosts Caty and Mike to discuss the difficult dance of making meaningful decisions in RPGs, breaking down the endings of Witcher 3, Mass Effect 3, Chrono Trigger, and more in the process. Plus: Kat shares her impressions of Ni No Kuni 2, and Caty and Mike talk about the localization of Yakuza 6!
