Stranger of Paradise and Persona 4 Arena Ultimax w/ Michael Higham

What do fighting games have to do with RPGs? A good fighting game character can have a backstory to rival any RPG hero's tale.

Episode Notes

This week on Axe of the Blood God, we’re spoiling for a fight. That’s why we pushed Kat off her chair this week and offered it to Michael Higham, Fanbyte’s fighting game expert extraordinaire. What do fighting games have to do with RPGs? Well heck, a good fighting game character can have a backstory to rival any RPG hero’s tale—and anyway, now’s a great time to talk about Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. So that’s what we do.

Also in this episode:

  • Our hero-themed March Madness continues to be madness.
  • We’re here to talk about Stranger of Paradise and Chaos. That’s our mission.
  • Nadia’s been fully absorbed by Elden Ring, RIP.
  • Nadia also forgot to add music for her segment. It’s all Blaidd’s fault, somehow.
