Axe of the Blood God: The Final Fantasy IX Report #2, and SNES RPGs... From Hell

PODCAST | Our FFIX Report continues, and we talk about the worst of the worst on the SNES.

Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey and Nadia Oxford. You can find the previous episodes here.

In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God (download link here), we continue our deep dive into Final Fantasy IX!

The SNES Classic is now officially out in the wild; and having spent lots of time talking about how great the SNES RPG library is, it's time to look at the other side of the coin and discuss the worst of the worst. There are more than you think!

Also in this episode: Part 2 of the Final Fantasy IX Report! We continue our adventure through the Evil Forest and the Ice Cave, and we talk about what Steiner adds to the story. And hey, there's a Quina cameo, too!
