Live A Live Review w/ Reb Valentine

Episode Notes

This week on Axe of the Blood God, Nadia and Eric are joined by their special friend, Reb Valentine of IGN. Together, they Live A Live, Laugh A Laugh, and Love A Love. That’s right: Reb reviewed the long-awaited 2DHD remake of the highly unusual Super Famicom RPG Live, and she’s in love to say the least. In fact, Live A Live has seemingly charmed western RPG fans in a way that would have been deemed impossible back in 1995. Who says there’s no longer hope for humankind? Make sure to check out Reb’s full review!

Also in this episode:

  • Oh no Eric is playing Endwalker
  • Nadia replays Xenoblade Chronicles to see if she still loves it. (Yes.)
  • Yakuza 8 is real, it’s coming, and Ichiban is everyone’s friend.

In the Post Show:

Reb joins Eric and Nadia for some post-show shenanigans, none of which are well-cultured or well-behaved. This week, there’s some (peppery) discussion about the future of Pokemon and the path it’s taking. Reb is not thrilled with Pokemon Legends Arceus; Nadia and Eric disagree. Obviously, the only solution is for GameFreak to release another “historical” Pokemon tactics game wherein Nobunaga is inexplicably hot and in charge of a black Rayquaza. Hop to it, GameFreak. Availably exclusively to our Patrons in the Stars of Destiny tier!
