The 2022 Game Awards + This Year’s Hidden Gem RPGs w/Lucas White
The universe has survived another bout of Geoff Keighley’s Game Awards, where the real awards are the memes mined from cynical adults’ Twitter timelines. Does that work grammatically? Eh, whatever. Point is, Geoff Keighley threw a party and now there are new RPGs to talk about. Which Nadia and Eric do with the help of very special guest Lucas White. Another important topic of discussion: The overlooked RPG gems of 2022. A whole heap of games dropped way too late to get that sweet, sweet December recognition, and the Blood God crew does its best to give them a nice boost.
Also in this episode:
- The real treasure in Dragon Quest Treasures are the Slime friends we made along the way.
- Holy crap! Hades II is coming!
- Holy crap! Chained Echoes is really good!
- A riveting tale of Sonic the Hedgehog and election fraud.
In the Post Show:
This week on the Axe of the Blood God post show, special guest Lucas White talks to Eric and Nadia about the 2022 Game Awards (how could they not?), particularly the “Best Narrative” category. What is narrative to a game, anyway? And why do so many storytellers have trouble expressing themselves effectively through games. Also: Big thoughts on the upcoming Fire Emblem: Engage.
