Axe of the Blood God Explores Battle for Azeroth and Remembers Deus Ex

AXE OF THE BLOOD GOD | We're all in on PC RPGs this week!

This article first appeared on USgamer, a partner publication of VG247. Some content, such as this article, has been migrated to VG247 for posterity after USgamer's closure - but it has not been edited or further vetted by the VG247 team.

Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey and Nadia Oxford. You can find the previous episodes here.

In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God, Mike talks about writing his expansive World of WarCraft history, and Nadia and I add Deus Ex to our list of the Top 25 RPGs! [download link here].

It seems only appropriate that we should add Deus Ex to the Top 25 RPG list on the day that CD Projekt releases the gameplay footage for Cyberpunk 2077. They are very similar games, after all. But Deus Ex set the bar in many ways, and it's a standard that not even its well-regarded sequels haven't quite been able to reach. We explore why in this episode.

Also in this episode, Mike talks about writing his massive World of WarCraft history and what he learned. Plus, we delve into the new Battle for Azeroth expansion and why the community is up in arms about the treatment of the Horde storyline.
