    138: It's Not You, It's Us

    After 137 wonderful episodes, we bid you, our faithful listeners, the very
    fondest of farewells. We've arrived at the metaphorical fork in the road,
    and we don't even care what a dreadful cliché that is. We hope you've had
    as much fun, learned as much, and generally had as good a time as we have
    with Unconsoleable.

    Remember, aloha means goodbye, but it also means hello love: so to you, our
    listeners, aloha!

Great! Great! Great!!!

So after listening to 100 episodes, I thought it was time for me to review Unconsoleable.

What an amazing podcast about all things mobile games, from the perspective of two very interesting women.

With witty banter, and full of laughs Jessica and Anna dig into the mobile (and occasionally pc) gaming scene to tell us about new and interesting games to look for, games to stay away from, and bring us the latest in the gaming world news.
Then we have the episodes with one of the many, many interesting guests that have appeared on the show, that give us invaluable look into the mind of the indie dev.

As a solo game dev myself, I find this show to be a well of invaluable information from the point of view of the casual gamer.

Jessica and Anna aren’t afraid to get into the darker side of the game world, tackling such important issues as diversity in games, which I greatly appreciate, as it’s such an important thing to be aware of, and to help fix!

Congratulations to both Jessica and Anna on your 100th episode. What an amazing achievement.

Obviously this is a 10 out of 10, and you should all tell all your friends to start listening NOW.

List of my top 3 episodes
Episode 52 – Please Downplay our Achievement

Where have you been all my gamer life?!

Lifelong gamer, game developer, new dad. So few journos and reviewers *get* my gaming habits now (no more consoles - only mobile games and *rare* opportunities to play on PC. You UNDERSTAND! Definitely gonna tune in as often as possible! :)

So relatable chat about the game I play

I play a lot of mobile games & love game culture. It's so good listening to Jessica & Anna chatting about the games I care about. Super insightful. Good to listen to when I have some down time too!
