In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God, it's time to render our final verdict on Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition [download link here]!

Hard as it is to believe, this is the third major release for Xenoblade Chronicles—amazing for a game that once had so much trouble making it to the west in the first place. Caty joins us to talk about her 80 hours spent with the game, the new content, and the rest of her review. Ultimately, we're curious to know whether it holds up. You may be surprised by the answer!

Also in this episode: We explore rumors of a The World Ends With You sequel, talk about some of our favorite podcasts, and more!
