One of my new favorites

Alright, so maybe I’m too late for the Dark Cloud competition, but that still reminded me that I need to give you guys a good review! This podcast is a great balance of history, overview, and context blended with the personal experience each of the hosts has playing the games today. It’s exactly what I enjoy in my podcasts and it was such a delight to stumble upon. As a fan of the PS2, I can’t wait to keep following you guys on this journey :)

Fun, laid back gaming chat

I came across this podcast after hearing their promo on another Greenlit show. I'm a difficult guy to please when it comes to gaming podcasts but I truly enjoy how much depth they go into with each episode. They could easily give a brief synopsis of the game and then rate/review it but they dive into the deep end without hesistation. Even better, throughout the episode they play clips of the soundtrack to give you an idea of how it sounds. Highly recommended.

Chill Podcast for PS2 fans

I found this show by searching "PS2" on spotify, and it has not dissappointed. Each episode is an in-depth review of a PS2 game, with the game's soundtrack playing underneath the discussion and between segments. The first season was a good mix of games I'd never heard of (Kessen, Fantavision), and games that I hadn't yet checked out but often saw on the shelf at the game store (SSX, Smuggler's Run). I like how the show doesn't just focus on good or bad games, but rather gives everything a chance. There's good contrast between the hosts too, with Dillon the american being more critical and the Englishman (I don't think I've caught his name in the 7 episodes I've heard) being more forgiving. Besides the game itself, they also talk about the developer and the gaming landscape at the time of its release. Check this show out if you're a fan of the PS2 looking to learn more about the games. Also, Dillon, if you're looking for a new sign off phrase, I came up with one. "P.S. play the PS2"
