Star Ocean: The Divine Force Review

Star Ocean: The Divine Force Review

Digital Foundry's John Linneman joins Kat, Nadia, and Eric for a detailed review about Star Ocean: The Divine Force!

Episode Notes

This week on Axe of the Blood God, Digital Foundry’s John Linneman joins Kat, Nadia, and Eric for a detailed discussion about Star Ocean: The Divine Force. It’s been a Canis Major’s age since Square Enix did anything with Star Ocean, and the Blood God crew is ashamedly not up-to-date on the series. That’s why John is here. (Also, it’s because he’s cool). Is the new game everything Star Ocean fans have been waiting for? Find out.

Also in this episode:

  • Don’t sleep on Harvestella, it’s pretty dang good
  • Mass Effect 5 exists
  • Mazeltov to Ash Ketchum for becoming the Galar Region champion with the aid of a Pokemon that’s too horrifying to exist
  • Nadia made friends with some crows, then accidentally pissed them off with pistachios

In the Post Show

Alas, John is only able to join the Blood God crew for part of this week’s post show, but there’s still lots of slightly-unhinged opinions and discussion to be had.

Deep questions abound, including:

  • What are some good B- or- C-tier RPGs that deserve a revival?
  • Has Pokemon Arceus hurt the hype for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?
  • Will Kat ever give up her Squirrel Girl card in Marvel Snap?


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?
