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