Episode Notes

This week on Axe of the Blood God, the gang takes a step into the fascinating and revolutionary (if jagged and polygonal) world of massive multiplayer online RPGs from the 2000’s as part of the PC RPG Quest! Kat, Nadia, and Eric are joined by very special guest Amy Dunham, who worked on some of the most prominent ’00s MMORPGs. (And more than a few other games, too!) Tune in as we talk about World of Warcraft, EverQuest, Eve Online, Elder Scrolls Online, and much more. Rest assured, Nadia reps Rangarok Online, too.

Also in this episode:

  • Starfield is delayed, no Starfield for Kat
  • Final Fantasy XIV players are being sent to video game jail for using mods
  • Pokemon Home adds support for Brilliant Diamond, Shining Pearl, and Legends Arceus
  • Eric lords his Steam Deck over the rest of us plebes

On the Post Show:

This week’s Axe of the Blood God post show is a godless mess as usual. Master Chief is no longer a virgin, so let’s all gather around in a circle, clap, and tell him “Congratulations!” Also, there is a lot of Final Fantasy X discussion. Why don’t people on Besaid island eat chocolate cake? Because it’s SINfully delicious. Wakka Wakka Wakka! The Post Show and the live recording can be access through the Stars of Destiny tier and above on the Patreon.
