Axe of the Blood God: The Cyberpunk 2077 Review Roundtable

[ad_1]

Following an eventful week for podcasts, we’ve got an extra long episode of Axe of the Blood God for you [download link here]!

First up, we break down the Mass Effect reveal, which has News Editor Eric Van Allen terribly excited. We also talk Dragon Age, Hades getting snubbed, and much more. Do we have opinion on The Game Awards? Why yes, we definitely have opinions on The Game Awards.

After that, it’s time to delve into Cyberpunk 2077 with Carolyn Petit and Alex Donaldson, who reviewed the game for Polygon and RPG Site respectively. Together, they talk about the impressive realization of Night City, whether or not it measures up to the legacy of The Witcher 3, and its handling of transgender issues.

Don’t worry! We avoid spoilers in this episode!

Show Description

Polygon and RPG Site reviewers Carolyn Petit and Alex Donaldson join the show to analyze the biggest RPG of 2020: Cyberpunk 2077! They talk about the ways that it does (and doesn’t) push the cyberpunk genre forward, its technical problems, and whether its handling of trans issues is as poor as it seems. [No spoilers!] Also, breaking down the Mass Effect reveal and more!
