Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey. You can find the show notes for previous episodes here.
In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God (download link here), Nadia shares her thoughts on Bravely Second, the Job System, and the appeal of retro JRPGs. We also have a brief little Twitter mailbag!
Nadia is working on a review-in-progress, which you can check out here. As for me, I'm only a few hours in, but I feel much more susceptible to its charms this time around. It has nice art, some great music, and it's a lot of fun to tinker with the different Jobs. I've even started to like the cutesy writing. Unfortunately, Bravely Second also has some terrible timing, as I picked it up just as I was getting hooked on Dark Souls III. Alas! At least I'll probably finish it before Persona Q.
Next week: It's still up in the air! But I'm sure we'll find something to talk ab out. We always do.

Nadia joins Kat to discuss Bravely Second, the sequel to the surprise hit retro RPG. How does it stack up to its predecessor? What is it about retro RPGs that seems to inspire so much passion in its fans? And has the series finally managed to win Kat over? All these answers and more, plus a Twitter mailbag.
