Best Xbox centric show
Really good show, worth a listen for any Xbox fan.
The latest episode (23rd Sept) unlistenable
This used to be a deep and interesting take in all things Xbox for the community. From late 2018 onwards however, the show has become virtually unlistenable and frequently incoherent. The contributors constantly talk over one another, the cast list rotates too frequently, the journalist aspect is lost to fandom and conversational tropes of “like” and “literally” and topics move from game to personal to another game, personal anecdote to another game. Frustrating and therefore, unsubscribed. Be journalists and proper content creators.
I love listening to Ryan and the crew breakdown the weeks topics. Ryan is always a consummate professional, Brandon is never afraid to raise counter points and make himself heard, Miranda has a great no nonsense view on the industry and Destin is just BAM! 👍🏻
