Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey and Nadia Oxford. You can find the previous episodes here.
Banner Saga 3 launched last week, and I'm joined by reviewer Hirun Cryer to discuss whether the final entry lives up to the first two games in the popular trilogy [download link here]
Hirun and I talk about the story, the combat, and oddly enough, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (it makes sense in the moment, I swear). But mostly we talk about how crushingly dark it is, and whether that's necessarily a bad thing. You can read our Banner Saga 3 review here.
Also in this episode, I'm joined by Gamesbeat's Jason Wilson and Divinity Original Sin 2 writer Kevin VanOrd to talk about number 20 in our ongoing RPG countdown: Divinity: Original Sin! Find out why 2014 gem deserves to counted as a modern classic.
Kat is joined by Mike Williams and Vidjagame Apocalypse co-host Matthew Allen to discuss number 21 on our Top 25 RPG Countdown: World of WarCraft! They talk about its RPG roots, why it changed MMORPGs forever, and why it continues to command a loyal audience to this day. Then Kat and Nadia respond to some of the more heated feedback from last episode's Octopath Traveler review.
