PC RPG Quest – 1990s: The Silver Age Of RPGs

Turn on Nickelodeon and feed your Tamagotchi, because it's time for the '90s PC RPG Quest here at Axe of the Blood God.

Episode Notes

Turn on Nickelodeon and feed your Tamagotchi, because it’s time for the ’90s PC RPG Quest here at Axe of the Blood God. John Walker of Buried Treasure joins Kat, Nadia, and Eric as they talk about this very tumultuous time in PC RPG history. The genre underwent enormous growth, but not before it suffered near-irrelevance amid the rise of DOOM and other first-person shooters.

There’s a lot to cover, so feel free to fiddle with your Slap Bracelet while the crew talks. Just don’t cut open the bracelet’s fabric, take out the sharp piece of metal inside, and start hitting people with it. That’s how Slap Bracelets get banned from schools. Not speaking from experience or anything, mind you.

Enjoy the PC RPG Quest? Make sure to check out our episodes covering the 1970s and 1980s!

Also in this episode:

  • Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker queue times will kill us all
  • Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl’s duplication glitches are making us nostalgic
  • NIntendo Online’s Expansion Pack kind of sucks.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Review

It’s the spoiler-free Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Spectacular! The panel has had plenty of time with Rebirth, or as I like to call it “Final Fantasy VII-3”. Does it improve upon Remake? Does it stand on it’s own? Do you need to play the lost mid-2000s Japanese feature phone game Before Crisis to fully grasp the importance of the character of Cissnei?
