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

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was an underrated addition to the Nintendo Switch last year. Coming toward the end of the year, it spawned a fair amount of debate over its relative merits. But there's no question about it over here: We love it [download link here].

This week Nadia and I are joined by Venturebeat's Anthony Agnello, who helps us recap last week's Nintendo Direct and mourn Valkyrie Profile being consigned. We touch on a lot of different subjects, but we mainly stop to dwell on Xenoblade Chronicles 2's relative merits. It's really good! Listen and find out why.

But that's not all! Nadia and Anthony have been playing Radiant Historia, which means we finally get a chance to discuss it on the podcast. Praise be! And of course, we have letters, as well as a little bit of a Pokemon rant. It's all in the latest episode of Axe of the Blood God.

Show Description

Kat and Nadia are joined by RPG enthusiast Anthony Agnello to recap Thursday's Nintendo Direct, including the news that South Park is coming to the Switch, and Dark Souls is getting an Amiibo (at last!). Then the trio talk about what makes Xenoblade Chronicles 2's great (with some spoilers), and why Radiant Historia is an RPG you should play on the 3DS.
