Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey and Nadia Oxford. You can find the previous episodes here.
It's been tough for me to play Secret of Mana of late because my partner and I are both pretty busy, which makes it hard to make time for it. But I managed to squeeze in a couple hours last night, which was a good opportunity to see how it plays solo. Listen for my thoughts!
Also in this episode: A deep dive into Xenoblade Chronicles 2's systems, characters, world, and everything else. And yes, we talk about Pyra. Plus, a eulogy for Demon's Souls!

Kat and Nadia team up to talk about the week's biggest RPG news as the bid farewell to Demon's Souls, discuss Bungie's decision to throttle XP gain in Destiny 2, and Final Fantasy XV's ongoing run of DLC. Then they turn to the main topic: Xenoblade Chronicles 2 [22:52] Is the gameplay really too complicated? Are Blades slaves or friends? And what is going on with Pyra? Nadia and Kat cover all that and more in their review. Finally, Kat checks in with an update with Secret of Mana Report #3! [58:56].
