In this week's episode of the Axe of the Blood God, Nadia and I react in real time to the news that Suikoden is getting the successor we've all been waiting for, and much more [download link here].
Pretty much this whole episode is devoted to reacting to this week's RPG news, because there's a ton of it. Fable was confirmed to be returning; Obsidian announced its answer to Skyrim; a Shin Megami Tensei 3 remaster was announced, and Shin Megami Tensei 5 resurfaced. The biggest news of all, though, was that the Suikoden team would be getting back together to make what sounds like... another Suikoden game!
That last piece of news arrived while we were actually recording, so please enjoy as Nadia and I react to the announcement as it's happening. We're genunely happy! This sounds like the game we've all been wanting for 20 years or more. As always, it sounds like there are a ton of amazing RPGs to look forward to, and Nadia and I couldn't be happier.
