The Axe of the Blood God Review of Ni No Kuni 2

AXE OF THE BLOOD GOD | Kat talks about her review of Ni No Kuni 2 in the latest episode of the RPG podcast.

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 multiple delays, the sequel to Ni No Kuni 2 is finally launching this week! Does it measure up? We discuss! [download link here].

Our Ni No Kuni 2 review is now live, and I generally thought it was... good? It definitely has some issues, particularly a surplus of mandatory fetch quests. Nadia and I talk about that, the combat, the clashing visuals, and whether or not Evan Pettiwhisker will in fact be the first against the wall when the revolution comes

But that's not all! Triple-A action games love co-opting skill trees these days, and God of War is just the latest. Nadia and I discuss the phenomenon, as well as why God of War feels like a third-person shooter now. It's all in the latest episode of our RPG podcast!
