The Axe of the Blood God Fall 2019 RPG Preview

The Axe of the Blood God Fall 2019 RPG Preview

From Pokemon to the Outer Worlds, Kat and Nadia talk about the big RPGs coming out this holiday season.

Fall 2019 is officially upon us, and some of the biggest games of the season are already out. That means that it's time to preview all of the major RPGs of the holiday [download link here]!

In this episode of Axe of the Blood God, Nadia and I sit down to talk about the RPGs we're most excited to play: Pokemon, The Outer Worlds, and more. We also talk about a lot of ports (tis the season), and I wind up getting on quite a few rants. It's an unusually ranty episode, I think.

Speaking of ports, Caty drops by to talk about Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, which is now available on Nintendo Switch, PC, and PS4. We actually wind up complaining about the sequel a lot, but we also have some kind words for the original Ni no Kuni, which occupies a fairly interesting place in RPG history. Listen and find out why this cult favorite is worth your attention now that it's getting a new release on modern consoles.
