USgamer's RPG Podcast Whiles Away the Dog Days of Summer With Ys, Witcher 3, and More

AXE OF THE BLOOD: Nadia and Kat discuss Ys: Oath in Felghana, Witcher 3, Pokemon, and Dragon Age Inquisition before hearing your pitches for your favorite lesser-known RPGs.

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), Nadia and I while away the dog days of summer discussing Ys, Witcher 3, Dragon Age, Pokémon, and listener pitches for lesser-known RPGs.

I've been delving into my backlog since getting back from Scotland, doing my best to get into Witcher 3. Unfortunately, I've had a harder time than I've expected engaging with CD Projekt Red's masterpiece, which I discuss at some length on the podcast. Nadia, meanwhile, talks about her experience with Ys: Oath in Felghana, which she's been enjoying quite a bit.

A few of you have asked if there will be an episode about the new Shiren the Wanderer game. Alas, that's more Jeremy's expertise, and his responsibilities make it very difficult to get him on the podcast. With that said, you should definitely check out his review.

On another note, I recently asked for some pitches for lesser-known RPGs on Twitter, but 140 characters isn't quite enough to express one's love for a given game. So I invite you to PM me or contact me at kat.bailey at usgamer dot net with your pitches, which I will in turn read on the podcast. Let's hear them!

Next week: We've got a fresh RPG interview coming up! It's also probably about time to do an episode about SNES RPGs...
