Axe of the Blood God Previews the RPGs of E3 2019

From Final Fantasy 7 Remake to Cyberpunk 2077, RPG fans have a lot to look forward to at this years show.

The Console RPG Quest is well underway; but with E3 2019 just a week away, we're temporarily putting it on hold so we can do a full preview of the show. It's gonna be a busy one for RPG fans [download link here]!

Pokemon, Cyberpunk 2077, and Final Fantasy 7 Remake will all be appearing in one capacity or another at E3 2019, and that's just the big RPGs. There are also plenty of rumors swirling around E3 2019, including reports of a new game being developed with the assistance of Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin. Suffice it to say, there's a lot to discuss in this episode.

And that's not all! We've got a little bit of an impromptu Final Fantasy 7 Report going as I play through the original on Switch, and Nadia has some updated thoughts on Trails of Cold Steel. Want to join in the conversation? Leave a comment and we may read it on the show! And don't forget to subscribe to the Newsletter of the Blood God for weekly thoughts on the world of RPGs.
