Axe of the Blood God: We Review Ever Oasis and Talk About All the Rest of This Week's RPG News

PODCAST | Ever Oasis, a .hack remaster, and much more in this week's episode of our RPG podcast.

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 talk about our Ever Oasis review, the .hack remaster, Terra World, and more!

Ever Oasis could have been taken a bit further, but it's still a competently executed and extremely cute RPG by the director of Secret of Mana. Nadia and I have plenty of thoughts on the subject as we talk about that; the news that .hack is returning, and that Hironobu Sakaguchi is expanding Terra World. Plus, we have reader comments, and plenty more random thoughts besides (including my pitch for a Game Journalism game).
