Which Trends Will RPGs Adopt Most Over the Next 10 Years?

Episode Notes

Not a single person is ready for 2023, but guess what! It’s happening anyway! Time is kind of a dick like that. So Kat, Nadia, and Eric just steel themselves this week and take the full-bodied plunge back into work. That’s why this week’s episode is refreshing, but there’s also a small chance it’ll stop your heart. This week’s main topic of discussion comes from one of the Blood God’s most devout $50 Patreon tier disciples, Knot Hollow, who wants to know what the next decade of RPGs will look like. Well, the Blood God crew has takes, guesses, and ideas. More games like Disco Elysium? Perhaps. More games like Genshin Impact? Maybe. How about Elden Ring? Almost certainly. Come back in a decade for the opportunity to point and laugh about how wrong Kat, Nadia, and Eric were.

Also in this episode:

  • Fire Emblem: Engage isn’t out yet, but it’s already generating takes (and not just about the heroes’ Aquafresh toothpaste hair)
  • Pocket Card Jockey lives! It has not been put down like a spent racehorse after all!
  • One billion years later, Nadia’s finally watching Archer
  • It’s the birth of a new segment! The Blood God team goes back and re-evaluates former Pantheon entries and candidates! This week: Will Lufia 2 be granted mercy?

Very special thanks to Knot Hollow for their support, and for the support of all the Blood God faithful out there!

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Review

It’s the spoiler-free Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Spectacular! The panel has had plenty of time with Rebirth, or as I like to call it “Final Fantasy VII-3”. Does it improve upon Remake? Does it stand on it’s own? Do you need to play the lost mid-2000s Japanese feature phone game Before Crisis to fully grasp the importance of the character of Cissnei?
