E3 2018 Wrap-Up: The Beginning of the End of the Current Console Generation

AXE OF THE BLOOD GOD | The current generation will soon be coming to a close, what it's like to interview Tetsuya Nomura, and more.

Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey and Nadia Oxford. You can find the previous episodes here.

If E3 2018 has proven anything, the end of the generation is nearly upon us. Nadia and I tackle that and more as we wrap up E3 2018 from an RPG perspective [download link here].

Nadia and I talk about Starfield, Elder Scrolls, and maybe even Cyberpunk being on the next generation of consoles; what it's like to interview Tetsuya Nomura, and why Pokemon Let's Go proves that Pokemon's random encounters have to die. Then we go to sleep, because it's been a very long show. Okay, not really, we're actually about to be busier than ever. Find out why!

Show Description

Kat and Nadia wrap up E3 2018 with a discussion of Valkyria Chronicles 4's Switch port, Fallout 76, Cyberpunk 2077, and more! Does Pokemon Let's Go prove that we no longer need random encounters in Pokemon? Are we okay with Cyberpunk 2077 being a shooter? How awesome does Fire Emblem look? And what's it like to be in the same room as Tetsuya Nomura? All that as we also announce a new weekly feature for the second half of 2018!

Music from Axe of the Blood God is courtesy of Lena Chappelle, who has also contributed the themes to Active Time Babble and Roleplayers' Realm. I also use music from the RPG Music Pack over at rpgmaker.net. Check it out!
