Final Fantasy 7 On the Switch is the Best of Times and the Worst of Times

Final Fantasy 7 On the Switch is the Best of Times and the Worst of Times

AXE OF THE BLOOD GOD | With Kat temporarily out of the picture, Anthony John Agnello and John Learned gab about A Link to the Past, Persona 5, Final Fantasy 7, and the joy (and agony) of reviewing RPGs.

Kat left us to go on vacation last week, and things are going pretty well without her. We only had to put out three fires this time! And they weren't even gasoline-fed! Last time Kat took off, USG somehow wound up with an irradiated patch of land that birds still refuse to fly over.

Anyway, come hell, high water, or irradiated super-fires, the Axe of the Blood God podcast will always be there for you. Guest host Anthony John Agnello is back, and we also roped in beloved freelance contributor John Learned.

This week, we discuss whispers of a possible remake of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. We also discuss whether Persona 5 will come to the Switch (yes), and if we'll play it all over again (yes). Then there's a rousing discussion about Final Fantasy 7, an obscure game you've probably never heard about. Unsurprisingly, all the talk about lengthy RPGs got us scarred games writers reminiscing about the ache of reviewing long games [Download link here].

Follow Anthony on Twitter and then do the same for John Learned. Make sure to read John's review of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, too. He wrote it just for us.

Show Description

Kat abandoned USG to go run with the bulls in Spain, so it's up to Nadia and special guests Anthony John Agnello and John Learned to keep the show afloat (they are both recovering from the black plague; please excuse their coughs). This week, we have a deep and serious discussion about a rumored remake for The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Persona 5 before we talk at length about Final Fantasy 7 on the Switch and the related music bug. Then our conversation smoooothly segues into the challenges of reviewing lengthy games like RPGs. Enjoy, and don't trust any dolphin that offers to let you jump off its stupid pointed face.
