More Gwent Please

Look, the show is fine, no one’s arguing that… I just wish they spent more time discussing the finer points of Gwent, the collectible card game within The Witcher 3. I just don’t think there are enough modern gaming podcasts that specifically focus on Gwent and only Gwent. Leave all the other not-Gwent stuff to those other podcasts. Because Gwent is where it’s at.

Gwent.

Perfect Blend of Comedy and Geekdom

If you want a gaming show that feels like it's taking place in your mate's lounge room, Big Head Mode is definitely for you. It's funny, accessible and makes you feel good about the fact that you're not the only one who drops obscure gaming references into general conversation.

Check this group of guys out!
