Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey and Nadia Oxford. You can find the previous episodes here.
A bunch of observers have been sharing their love for Project Octopath Traveler, and we agree! We think it looks great! Nadia and I share our love for its graphics, break down its battle system, and talk about how it looks on the TV vs. the Switch. We also delve into everything else from this week's Nintendo Direct!
Also in this episode, David Craddock returns to talk about this new book: Break Out: How the Apple II Launched the PC Gaming Revolution. Join us as we dive into the early history of PC RPGs and talk about how their roots extended into the rest of the genre!
