Axe of the Blood God: The Fall RPG 2020 Preview

We preview Cyberpunk 2077, Yakuza 7, and the rest of this fall's biggest RPGs.

The fall release season is upon us, and that means that it's time to preview all of the biggest RPGs for the rest of 2020 [download link here].

Naturally, Cyberpunk 2077 towers above all, but it's not the only major RPG being released this holiday season. We also cover Yakuza 7, Trails of Cold Steel 4, World of WarCraft's Shadowlands expansion, and plenty more. Even if you're not planning to invest in a next-gen system, it looks like it's going to be a pretty big year.

Also in this episode: We react to the Xbox Series S price! We celebrate an underrated but important RPG in our Track of the Week! And we look at the reaction to two RPG releases from this week: Kingdom of Amalur Re-Reckoning and Perils of Gorgon, the new DLC for The Outer Worlds.
