The Game Awards Reax & LGBTQ+ Representation From Catherine To Final Fantasy V

This week's episode features a hearty discussion about LGBTQ+ representation in games, old and new, eastern and western. There's a long way to go, but there's been a lot of progress that's worth celebrating, too.

Episode Notes

Kat’s away this week on Axe of the Blood God, so Nadia takes the reigns, and chaos reins. Wait. Strike that. Reverse it. Thank you.

Eric is on-hand to help co-host, of course, and a very special guest enters the fray: Blood God Discord mod Valexia! The trio have a hearty discussion about LGBTQ+ representation in games, old and new, eastern and western. There’s a long way to go, but there’s been a lot of progress that’s worth celebrating, too.

Also in this episode:

  • The Game Awards hate JRPGs 🙁
  • Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is coming to PS4, Switch, and PC!
  • Everyone’s mad at Nadia because she liked that Imagine Dragons/Bastion song at the Game Awards
  • Analogue Pocket orders are opening up. May the odds be ever in your favour.
