Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey and Nadia Oxford. You can find the previous episodes here.
Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire is a very interesting RPG that has slipped through the cracks a bit. Nevertheless, we're here to review Obsidian's opus and explain why it's a PC RPG you should definitely be playing [download link here]
I'm joined this week by Doc Burford, who reviewed Deadfire for us and has tons of opinions on... well, pretty much everything. He explains why it works right off the bat, the balance of the battle system, and how it compares to the original game.
But that's not all! Doc has been playing a sweet noir RPG called Disc Elysium, and he explains why it's now one of his most anticipated RPGs ever. And we discuss why it's so hard to make detective mechanics work in RPGs. All that and more in the latest episode of Axe of the Blood God!
