In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God (download link here), the Chrono Trigger and Persona 4 Golden Reports return, and Caty discusses Nier Automata!

There's plenty to discuss in this week's episode as Nadia and I hit on the Mass Effect Andromeda drama (as well as my thoughts on the opening) and return to Persona 4 Golden and Chrono Trigger. Then Caty joins us to talk Nier Automata and recommend some good SMT games ahead of Persona 5.

Then Caty returns to talk Nier Automata (41:00) and which Shin Megami Tensei games to play after Persona 5 (1:04:30). It's a double helping of RPG goodness!
