Episode Notes

This week, Axe of the Blood God tackles the 2022 fall RPG preview—which feels like a nutty thing to say, since summer only started yesterday. Right? Right…?

Oh.

Thankfully, RPGs help take away the sting of passing time for a little while. And it so happens the last quarter of 2022 is loaded with some bangers. Persona 5 for Nintendo Switch! Tactics Ogre Reborn! Valkyrie Elysium! Not to mention a couple of small indie games called Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. What a way to end the year that gave us Elden Ring and Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

Also in this episode:

  • Mickey is a sad divorced dad in his new Animal Crossing-style game (“ah-ha!”)
  • Xenoblade Chronicles 3 chapter 5 ruined Nadia’s life
  • Kat’s going to Japan and Nadia and Eric are not 🙁
  • Nadia ruined the Autumn of Avatar forever
