The First Super Robot Wars You Should Play

AXE OF THE BLOOD GOD | Kat and Nadia wrap Cosmic Star Heroine, talk about the impact of graphics, and pick the first Super Robot Wars you should play.

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

Super Robot Wars X launched on PS4 and Vita last week, but is it the first one you should play? Nadia and I discuss as I lay down a primer for the greatest mecha strategy series around [download link here]

This is actually a bit of a... rambling... episode. Nadia and I start by talking about the impact of graphics in games, and that mushrooms into a conversation that touches on Persona 5, our favorite RPG stories, Bojack Horseman, and Radiant Historia. But eventually I get around to talking about the history of Super Robot Wars, why I like it so much, and which one you should play first.

But that's not all! Cosmic Star Heroine is out on the Vita now, and Nadia and I are about ready to wrap up our Cosmic Star Heroine Report. Join us for our final thoughts!
