Souls Hackers 2 Review w/ Michael Higham and Diego Argüello

This week on Axe of the Blood God, Kat, Nadia, and Eric have a (digital) devil of a time talking about Soul Hackers 2.

Episode Notes

This week on Axe of the Blood God, Kat, Nadia, and Eric have a (digital) devil of a time talking about Soul Hackers 2. They’re joined by Fanbyte.com superstars Michael Higham and Diego Argüello, who both have plenty to say about this strange game. It appears Soul Hackers 2 strives to land somewhere between the dark, complex Shin Megami Tensei games, and the character-driven Persona titles. Does Soul Hackers 2 hit the mark? Or does it just hee-ho off into the sunset, destined to be forgotten?

Also in this episode:

  • The preliminary sales numbers for Xenoblade Chronicles 3 are looking pretty fine
  • The Embracer Group acquires everything on planet earth, including Lord of the Rings
  • Riku the Nopon refuses to die for your sins; you don’t deserve redemption
  • The gang talks about “‘The Garden of Eden’, by I. Ron Butterfly”

In the Post Show

Michael Higham and Diego Argüello sit in on this week’s post show, and the whole thing derails in about six seconds. The conversation bounces from religion to literature to something about furries and the Metaverse. Do not look in the dead, cold eyes of the Zuckerberg Metaverse dollar store Mii; it will swallow your soul. Available to subscribers in the Stars of Destiny tier and above!
