Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey. You can find the previous episodes here.
In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God (download link here), we talk about the Mass Effect series in light of new information about Mass Effect Andromeda. We also discuss Tyranny, and wonder what it'd be like to play RPGs as Sephiroth, Kefka, and Suikoden II's Luca Blight.
Also, we reach into our mailbag and discuss an underrated RPG: Grandia 2!
What does the Mass Effect series mean to you? What kind of influence does it have on games in general, if any? And which RPG villain would you love to wreak havoc as?

Nadia and Kat talk villains and space as they gab about Mass Effect Andromeda, RPG bad guys in their own games, and their hands-on experience with Obsidian Games' Tyranny. What would Final Fantasy VII be like from Sephiroth's point of view? How's Tyranny so far? And does anyone remember Grandia 2? All this and more!
