Axe of the Blood God: Reacting to the PS5 Reveal, Persona 4 Golden on PC, and More

It's E3! Sort of.

In this week's episode of the Axe of the Blood God, it's time to talk about the big PS5 reveal, Persona 4 Golden, and more[download link here]!

The PS5 took center stage last week, and while it was mostly a very good reveal, RPG fans could be forgiven for being a little letdown. Outside of Project Athia and the Demon's Souls Remake, there wasn't much to sate fans of the genre. Nadia and I talk about why that's the case, and speculate on the announcements that do happen.

In other news, Persona 4 Golden is officially out on PC! We talk about why this is a big deal for the series, and what it means to be able to play with the Japanese VO. Plus, I yammer a bit about The Last of Us Part 2, the Track of the Week returns, and more.

One last thing: Have you listened to The Dialogue Box Podcast yet? Our first episode was released earlier this week, featuring the great Austin Walker! Make sure to have a listen!
