Axe of the Blood God was at PAX East over the weekend, where Nadia and Eric were joined by special guests Scott White and Ash Paulsen! In a special live panel, they discuss the State of Final Fantasy from the good, to the bad, to the... Chaotic. Thanks so much to everyone for joining us, and you can watch the panel here!
 
Plus Kat, Nadia, and Eric talk about Xenoblade Chronicles getting pushed up (!?) to July and Elden Ring Patch 1.04!

This week's Axe of the Blood God is simple and clean. Friend of the show and Good Vibes Gaming host Ash Paulsen joins Kat, Nadia, and Eric to talk about Square Enix's surprise Kingdom Hearts 4 announcement. What, exactly, is going on in the game's mystifying trailer? How did Sora get doxxed? What happened to his Ronald McDonald shoes? Why did Goofy and Donald descend into hell to look for Sora instead of assuming he went to Heaven? The discourse is rich and flavorful. 

Also in this episode:

  • Final Fantasy XIV 6.1 is here. Time to dust off your catboys.
  • Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes pits Not-Byleth against Byleth.
  • Kat beats up her first shadow in her Persona 3 day-by-day playthrough
  • The "What is an RPG' discourse reaches new, depraved depths. But "If Bloodborne counts as an RPG, so does Actraiser! Tell 'em, Hawk!"
  • Nadia once had a Cabbage Patch doll, and that ended poorly for everyone.

This week on Axe of the Blood God, the PC RPG Quest continues! The gang is joined by their friend Jeff Green, who was at the epicentre of the major shift PC gaming underwent in the 2000's. On the surface, it was a grim time for PC RPGs. MMOs were encroaching on single-player adventures, consoles were eating into the PC RPG space...and what the heck was this "Steam" thing Valve refused to shut up about? Pffft. It'll never catch on.

Also in this episode: 

  • We introduce our characters for next week's D&D game! Be there or be square.
  • Starscourge Radahn was un-nerfed in Elden Ring, but the important thing is he still rides on a tiny horse. (Or is it a tricycle?)
  • Kat has started her Persona 3 playthrough, and she has some initial thoughts.
  • Actraiser is an RPG. End of discussion.

This episode of Axe of the Blood God comes at the end of a discourse-heavy week. E3 is pretty much dead, which spurs Kat, Nadia, and Eric into sharing their best E3 memories (Nadia still has her Witcher press Trapper Keeper).

Moreover, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 has been bumped to spring 2023. Whatever will Nintendo do this holiday season?...Oh, right. Pokemon's coming.


Also in this episode:

  • Nadia's playing Valkyrie Profile and keeps calling it "Valkyria Chronicles."
  • March Madness is done! Who came out on top as the best RPG Hero or Champion?
  • The new PlayStation Plus deal is "uhhhh." But at least we can play Tokyo Jungle again?
  • A book fair ran over Nadia's cat.

We also have a post show available to our Stars of Destiny subscribers! This week we share our Stephen King starting recommendations and talk about being really bad at math. Stars of Destiny and above subscribers also get access to our live recording every Friday at 5pm PT, which is always a party. As always we appreciate your support!
