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.

Show Description

This week's episode of Nadia and Kat goofing on Mass Effect Andromeda's odd animation problems (1:00) before returning to Persona 4 (10:45) and Chrono Trigger (26:27). 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!
