PC RPG Quest – 2010s: The Great Convergence w/ Len Hafer

Len helps the Blood God wrap up the PC RPG Quest with a deep dive into the computer RPGs that shaped the '10s. And oh, what a decade it was.

Episode Notes

Summer is a time for schmoozing with friends, which is why Axe of the Blood God invited veteran guest Len Hafer to talk about the best video game genre in the whole wide world. (Psst—that means RPGS.) Len helps the Blood God wrap up the PC RPG Quest with a deep dive into the computer RPGs that shaped the ’10s. And oh, what a decade it was. Kickstarter dreams and nightmares! Bioware’s troubles! World of Warcraft! The rise of CD Projekt Red! Final Fantasy XIV’s fall and resurrection! They don’t make drama like this anymore.

Also in this episode:

  • The Live A Live demo is…live. And it’s already something special.
  • Mega Man Battle Network is getting a collection. Hey, it’s RPG-adjacent. And the second game has a lot of swear words in it for some reason.
  • Is it “Nicky-Nicky-Nine-Door” or “Ding-Dong-Ditch?”
  • Come to our upcoming charity stream for Trans Lifeline, or else.

In the Post Show

Len joins the gang for the usual hodge-podge of good stuff that the Blood God Crew wrings out of itself at the end of every show. This week, the discussion turns to live-action and/or animated adaptations of video games that we’d like to see. Plus, lots of Summer Games Done Quick discussion… and hey! Nadia got a gaming computer that’s worth half a damn! This episode is available exclusively to Patrons in our Stars of Destiny tier and above.

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?

Put on your black hoodie with the thumb-holes cut out and start drawing “the cool S” on all your homework because we’re taking things back to 2003 AND 2013 at the same time.
