Vote On the February 2022 Pantheon Selection!

Vote On the February 2022 Pantheon Selection!

Greetings Disciples of the Blood God! It’s time to help us choose the next candidate for inclusion in the Pantheon of the Blood God.  To celebrate the impending release of Elden Ring, this month’s theme is Soulslike Games. You can vote over on the Patreon! 

Here are the nominees:

Dark Souls, which is in the voting for the second month in a row! Will it win this time? It’s available on basically every major console you can think of, including Nintendo Switch.

Bloodborne, the Victorian horror dungeon crawler that many consider the actual best game in the series. It’s available on PS4 and PS5.

Salt and Sanctuary, among the first indie games to capture the feel of the Soulslike genre — a rare and worth accomplishment! It’s available on PS4, PC, Vita, Switch, and Xbox One.

Demon’s Souls, the Bluepoint remake that is among the handful of “true next-gen” games currently available. You can play it on PS5.

As part of this process, we will once again be hosting a month-long Game Club over on the Discord! Nadia and I will actively be playing the game we choose, and we encourage you to join with us on the Discord as part of the Pantheon Game Club discussion!

Voting is available to all Patrons! We will be closing voting on the morning of Tuesday, January 4, so make sure to make your selection before then! And as always, thank you so much to our $10 Patrons and above for your generous support!
