USgamer's RPG Podcast Puts Final Fantasy's Run on the Super Nintendo into Perspective

AXE OF THE BLOOD GOD: What did Final Fantasy mean for the SNES, and vice versa? We discuss! Plus: God Eater and Fallout 4's last batch of DLC.

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 continue our "SNES in Perspective" series by looking at the big one: Final Fantasy.

It's a surprisingly tough subject to tackle. Final Fantasy IV, V, and VI have all been covered endlessly over the years, and it's difficult to offer new insight into them that goes beyond, "These games are really good." But we do our best! Also, this episode is an educational one, as Bob and Nadia debunk some commonly held myths about the localizations and other subjects.

Also in this episode: A discussion about God Eater, as well as Fallout 4's Nuka-World DLC. The latter brings with it an interesting conversation about roleplaying an evil character in an RPG. Check it out!

Next week: World of WarCraft: Legion! Promise!

Show Description

Kat, Nadia, and Bob continue their ongoing "SNES in Perspective" series with the big one: Final Fantasy. How did the SNES change Final Fantasy and vice versa? What was it about the 16-bit era that seemed to find Hironobu Sakaguchi and company at their best? We discuss! Plus: We delve into Fallout 4's Nuka-World DLC and God Eater!
