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), we examine some of the drama around Persona 5, talk about Breath of the Wild, and, of course, delve into another Persona 4 Golden Report.
I've already said my piece about Atlus' decision to heavily curtail the streaming of Persona 5. As for the localization, well, I don't think it meets the high bar set by Persona 3 and 4, but I also don't think it detracts from the overall story. All things considered, it's not a significant departure from Atlus' previous work. Perhaps you disagree!
In addition to discussing Persona 5, Nadia and I get back into Breath of the Wild (because who doesn't want a little Zelda talk), discuss the push to get the Switch's Seiken Densetsu Collection releashed in English, and cover Persona 4. As always, a pretty packed episode!
Sidenote! Next week is the hundredth episode of Axe of the Blood God! The theme of the episode will be "Why We Love RPGs," and we'd love for you to contribute. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (or just DM me) and we'll see about getting your letter on the show!
