We revisit the PC-9800 with special guest PC98 Audi while breaking down the Activision Blizzard acquisition, Space Jam DVD, and more.

Episode Notes

We’re going back to the ’90s again here on Axe of the Blood God, but here’s a twist: We’re going back to ’90s Japan. Yes, it’s another PC Console Quest, and we’ve invited our good friend PC98 Audi back to the show for the occasion. We discuss the PC-98’s legacy, and how it affected ’90s RPG development. Why did the platform have so many visual novels? What’s the deal with, ahem, all those hentai games? We have much wisdom contained here, so stay a while and listen.

Also in this episode:

  • Oh God, Activision Blizzard and Microsoft. Oh God.
  • We have new picks for the Top 25 RPG Remake 2022 Intergrade.
  • Nadia plays Bloodborne like a dimwit.
  • Space Jam DVD.
