Excellent Concise Games Podcast from the UK

A very welcome brief podcast with excellent alternation between gaming news, opinion, and discussion on the latest games and from the recent past. Just wish that unplugged was seperate as I have little interest in boardgames. My previous review moaned a little about Neil's presenting style but he's improved no end, and now one of the best! Well done guys and keep up the excellent work. 5 stars if it wasn't for the boardgames.

Used to be great

Gameburst used to be the gold standard for news and topics however, I’m afraid to say that there now appears to be a general negative attitude from the majority of the team members. I find it very hard to listen now and often turn off when some of the presenters dismiss news items for no valid reason. Also, I’m the last person to give advice on sound quality and what to do on a podcast, but the sound of someone lighting a cigarette or smacking their lips too close to the mic is very distracting. On the plus side Gary is always excellent and offers a more balanced and measured approach. I just wish the other team members followed his lead.
