Axe of the Blood God: Our Monster Hunter: World Review

Axe of the Blood God: Our Monster Hunter: World Review

PODCAST | Bob returns to talk about Monster Hunter World, and we've got more Cosmic Star Heroine!

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), Bob returns to discuss this review of Monster Hunter World!

Bob was pretty excited about Monster Hunter World, which he awarded a perfect score. He talks about his perspective as an expert on the series, how MHW fixes a lot of his long-running issues, and what it's been like to see the game he loves finally get some mainstream love.

But that's not all! Nadia and I also talk about the Secret of Mana Remake and this week's BioWare news, and we continued our foray into Cosmic Star Heroine. Join us for another week of RPG goodness with the Blood God!
