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 (download link here), Kat gets elbows-deep into Xenoblade Chronicles 2 just as I finish off Final Fantasy IX.
Today's podcast is a bit laid back, but what's better than chilling with your homegirls on a Friday afternoon? Sorry; I promise never to say that again. Just listen to the episode, please. Kat and I talk at length about the strengths and weaknesses of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and I talk about my final showdown with Final Fantasy IX's Kuja. I'll sum up my thoughts on Square-Enix's classic RPG next week, so stay on the edge of your seat. Do not move. I'll know.
