Our Favorite RPG Cowboys, Fallout 76 Beta Impressions, and More!

AXE OF THE BLOOD GOD | Kat and Nadia pick their favorite cowboys from Final Fantasy VIII to Fallout, and also talk more about the Fallout 76 beta.

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

A little game called Red Dead Redemption 2 launched last week, and that got Nadia and I thinking about our favorite RPG cowboys. We list some of them here, and also talk more Persona 5 and the Fallout 76 Beta in the latest episode of Axe of the Blood God [download link here]!

The list Nadia and I were able to come up with is actually pretty diverse. It includes wannabe sharpshooters, caravan drivers, sheep ranchers, and business tycoons. It does not include any characters from Wild Arms, which despite being "a western," leans more heavily on fantasy elements. Have a listen and let us know what you think!

Plus: The Fallout 76 beta is rolling out on PC and PS4, and I have some thoughts after getting to play it a bunch. And I've got more thoughts on Persona 5 as well!
