USgamer's RPG Podcast Celebrates Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age

AXE OF THE BLOOD GOD: Another packed episode brings with it Final Fantasy XII, Super Robot Wars V, and Odin Sphere discussion.

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

In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God (download link here), we're joined by our fearless leader as well as Japan correspondent Elliot Gay to discuss Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, Super Robot Wars V, and more..

When the Final Fantasy XII announcement hit, I knew that I had to get the boss on the show. Jeremy's love for Final Fantasy XII is well-documented, and he joins us in the first segment to share what he appreciates most about it.

In the following segments, Elliot Gay returns to discuss Super Robot Wars V, which was announced over the past weekend. We both agree that it will probably be a placeholder while Bandai Namco works on a real sequel, but we're pretty excited about it being available in English. Finally, Nadia and I wrap up the Odin Sphere Leifthrasir conversation that we started last week.

Next week: A wild E3 approaches! Command?
