USgamer's RPG Podcast Recaps the Best RPGs of 2016

AXE OF THE BLOOD GOD: Kat, Mike, and Jeremy get together to discuss Horizon: Zero Dawn, Final Fantasy XV, Zelda, Dragon Quest, Nier, and many more.

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), I expend the last of my energy to recap the RPGs of E3 2016 alongside Mike and Jeremy.

Our discussion runs the gamut from Horizon: Zero Dawn to Dragon Quest VII, with plenty of conversation about E3 in general in-between. We're all a bit loopy from the show - a week spent running around covering games will do that - but we manage to stay just coherent enough to make it through the end. Alas, I wish I could say that we get to rest now; but in reality, we've still got lots more to write. The glamorous life of a game journalist, am I right?

Next week: Grand Kingdom? Tokyo Mirage? More E3 chatter? Nadia returns as we get back to normal following E3.
