Episode Notes

Today on a very special episode of Axe of the Blood God, we host our very first Patreon-sponsored guest! Giuseppe Spinella joins Kat and Nadia for a very thoughtful conversation about the women of the Final Fantasy series. They delve into how said women have contributed to the series’ narrative with their strengths, their flaws, and in Garnet’s case, their very, very yellow attire. Please enjoy this spirited exchange, and thanks as always to our Patrons for your invaluable support!

Also in this episode: Nier Replicant’s positive reception demonstrates how much the games industry has opened up in the past decade, and Nadia touches all of Loki’s stuff and makes him mad in Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster.
