The Top 25 RPG Intergrade Post-Mortem

The Top 25 RPG Intergrade Post-Mortem

Why some games were picked for our updated Top 25 RPG list, while others were left to die in shallow puddles of rainwater.

Episode Notes

This week on Axe of the Blood God, Kat has run off to do sailor junk on the high seas, so Nadia and Eric hold the rig together by themselves. Well, that’s not entirely true. Kat joins them from SeaPhone™ to tackle this week’s main topic: Why some games were picked for our updated Top 25 RPG list, while others were left to die in shallow puddles of rainwater. This discussion involves a lot of self-flagellation and even more furious denial, so look forward to drama and mayhem. Soap operas wish they had this explosive narrative impact.

Also in this episode:

  • June is going to be all decked out in Final Fantasy (XVI? VII Remake pt 2?) news.
  • What is even going on with Summer Games Fest? Do we know? Do we care? (Kinda.)
  • One time, Nadia had to ask a bookstore clerk for porn manga. It was for work.
  • The Luca Goers suck.
