AXE OF THE BLOOD GOD | A spoiler-filled discussion of NNK2's story, Monster Hunter World's new event, and more.

Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey and Nadia Oxford. You can find the previous episodes here.

Where did Ni No Kuni 2's story go wrong? Nadia and I have thoughts as we wrap up our discussion of Level-5's latest RPG. [download link here]

With Nadia having finished Ni No Kuni 2, we go in-depth on the story in a kind of impromptu RPG report. We talk about many of the subjects covered here, but we also touch on issues like Ni No Kuni 2's attempt to grapple with class warfare. It's a spoiler-filled discussion that begins at 22:52 and continues to 01:07:16. Join us as we finish up Ni No Kuni 2!

But that's not all! I also talk about why I'm trying to wean myself off Monster Hunter World, Persona 5's gay panic, and event more of the best legendary weapons!
