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!
Kat and Nadia settle down to review Ni No Kuni 2! [22:00] How does the combat hold up? Why does the overworld look like it was imported from the PS2? And will Evan Pettiwhisker be the first against the wall when the revolution comes? We have answers to all these questions and more! Plus: The move by triple-A action games to co-op skill trees. Does it work? We discuss!
