Axe of the Blood God 300: The RPGs That Made us
By the Dragonlord’s pantaloons! Axe of the Blood God has hit episode 300, and we couldn’t be prouder to bring it to you! Kat and Nadia hosted a live show, but if you missed out, here’s the neat ‘n clean audio for you. You can also watch a re-run at Kat’s Twitch channel.
This week, Nadia and Kat have a long leisurely talk with the Blood God audience about RPG “firsts.” Which game gets the credit as the progenitor of the genre we love so much? Did Dragon Quest III introduce classes, or did Final Fantasy III beat the dragon to the punch? And did you know modern RPGs owe a heck of a lot to Hydlide, that primitive “bump-and-stab” action RPG that has the worst overworld music in gaming history? Life is full of surprises, and we love reminding you all of that fact.
Also in this episode: Monster Hunter Rise is monstrously good, SMT 3 featuring Dante from Devil May Cry is coming to Switch in May, and Square Enix cancels a Final Fantasy XI remake that we had no idea was in the works.
Thanks for your support! Here’s to 300 more episodes.
