Axe of the Blood God: What Went Wrong With Mass Effect: Andromeda?

PODCAST | We discuss Mass Effect: Andromeda and Torment: Tides of Numenera in this week's episode of the RPG pod!

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 have our long overdue Torment: Tides of Numenera and dive into what went wrong with Mass Effect: Andromeda.

I'm joined by special guest Rowan Kaiser, who is intimately familiar with Mass Effect, and we discuss the game's very real issues outside of its animation problems. We also take the time to shower some deserved love on Torment: Tides of Numenera, which has sadly been overlooked amid the current rush. It's true, the Blood God likes more than JRPGs!
