The Game Awards 2023 Recap: An Embarrassment of RPG Riches and Just Plain Embarrassment

All the awards, trailers, and controversies in The Game Awards 2023.

Episode Notes

It was an embarrassment of RPG riches as well as just plain embarrassment at this year’s Game Awards 2023 as Keighley Fest 2023 once again brought us trailers, celebrities, and way too much Hideo Kojima. Nadia, Kat, and Eric recap everything that happened at this year’s show, including the major reveals (Monster Hunter! Exodus!), the winners (Baldur’s Gate 3… a lot!) and controversies (maybe don’t play developers off the stage when they’re trying to honor dead colleagues!). All that and more in this week’s episode of Axe of the Blood God!

  • GTA VI mania!
  • Dragon Age gets a short reveal
  • Nadia’s Christmas Pit

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?

Put on your black hoodie with the thumb-holes cut out and start drawing “the cool S” on all your homework because we’re taking things back to 2003 AND 2013 at the same time.
