Axe of the Blood God: We Love Project Octopath Traveler

PODCAST | We talk about all the news from the Nintendo Direct, share our thoughts on Project Octopath Traveler, and reminisce about the days of the Apple II.

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 share our love for a sneaky good little Switch RPG due next year: Project Octopath Traveler!

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!
