Interesting gaming topics

Great breakdowns of some classic games. Really interesting interviews. All in all this podcast is doing something different and important in the video game space. Check it out.

Travii_ ,

Bob constantly interrupts people.

For a podcast about games it is ok, except for some random factual errors here & there.

The thing that really takes it down though is the aggressive, arrogant, judgemental presenter named Bob who talks over everybody else, interrupts, interjects and rants.

Super entertaining

Bob, Jeremy, Henry and the rest of the crew all do an amazing job each week highlighting the super interesting history to some of the most iconic and influential games of years gone.

Easily on the best gaming podcasts being made right now.
