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), Nadia and I cover the release of Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon, initial Xenoblade Chronicles 2 impressions, and of course, our ninth Final Fantasy IX Report!
It's a deceptively big RPG week thanks to the release of Pillars of Eternity: Definitive Edition, Skyrim on Switch (and Skyrim VR), and Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon. Nadia is also reviewing Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and she has some initial thoughts on how it compares to the original game.
Also in this episode: I explain why there should never be another "third version" of a Pokemon game, and we explore Zidane's existential crisis in Final Fantasy IX Report #9!
