The Mid-Year Review 2022: From Pokemon Legends To Citizen Sleeper

What are some of our favorite games this year? (Elden Ring might get a mention.) Which RPGs were surprise hits? Which seemed to slip under the radar? Opinions are shared.

Episode Notes

This week on Axe of the Blood God, recent political going-ons have the gang physically, mentally, and spiritually taxed. Kat, Nadia, and Eric elect to take it easy and do a mid-year check-in of the RPGs. What are some of our favorite games this year? (Elden Ring might get a mention.) Which RPGs were surprise hits? Which seemed to slip under the radar? Opinions are shared.

Also in this episode:

  • Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is looking quite fine.
  • Eric is trying to build a Gundam model, RIP
  • All glory to the Disneyworld Dead Lizard Patrol

In the Post Show

On this week’s post show, Kat and Eric descend down an End of Evangelion hole, and Nadia just kind of sits with her gob as wide as a boot because she has no idea what they’re talking about. But then the gang answers an important listener question about how they’d build their ideal RPGs. Eric and Nadia have answers that are almost normal, but Kat unleashes a nightmare idea on the masses. For the love of God, don’t let her anywhere near RPG Maker. Available via the Patreon!
