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

After close to a decade, Demon's Souls' servers were finally closed down last week. To capture this seminal moment, I brought in Souls expert John Learned, who chronicled the month leading up to Demon's Souls' demise for USgamer. We also welcome back David Craddock, author of the outstanding Dungeon H@cks, to share his own thoughts on the action RPG that started the Soulsborne phenomenon [download link here].

But that's not all! I'm cautiously interested in Square Enix's new Valkyrie Profile teaser, but I'm a little nervous in light of how the Secret of Mana remake went. Plus, Nadia and I aren't too happy about the unfortunate Chrono Trigger PC port (Warning: Much ranting within). And Nadia finally shares her thoughts on the unique Final Fantasy XV mobile game!
