Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey. You can find the previous episodes here.
In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God (download link here), friend of the podcast Steve Tramer returns to talk Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy XV, and a whole lot of other games over drinks. It's GDC!
Most of the episode is spent on Final Fantasy XV—an RPG that has been suffering an increasing amount of backlash over the past few months. We talk about Square Enix's odd move to turn it into more of an ongoing platform, the infamous Chapter 13, and whether Prompto really is like Ferris Bueller.
Also in this episode, we jump into what is suddenly an ongoing series: our second Chrono Trigger report! I talk about my experience with Zeal, my party composition (Frog FTW), and lots of other stuff. All this and more in the latest episode of our RPG podcast!
