    Episode 228 - Metal Gear Solid 3 Is Hideo Kojima's Masterpiece

    Episode 228 - Metal Gear Solid 3 Is Hideo Kojima's Masterpiece

    In an effort to course correct from Metal Gear Solid 2, Hideo Kojima goes outside of the box and brings us Metal Gear Solid 3 on the Playstation 2. MGS 3 foregoes the complex sci-fi narrative of MGS 2 to give us a straight forward story about when the lines between duty and honor get blurred. Join us as we deep dive discuss what is quite possibly Hideo Kojima's magnum opus.

    Episode 227 - The Gaming Burnout Problem and How To Fix it

    You ever just fire up your game system, look at the games and shut the system off because you don't feel like playing anything? We've all experienced burn out in gaming to a degree. But not all burn out is the same. Matter of fact, it might be a sign of something else going on that needs your attention or it might be time to try out something new. This week, we dig deep into burn out and discuss our seasons with it.

My Favorite Podcast

I stumbled upon The Reformed Gamers podcast a few years ago during a time when I was questioning if as a Christian I was wasting my time playing video games or I even considered if my gaming was sinful. I grew up playing video games and I play with most of my friends so this concern greatly bothered me because I love video games but I also want to glorify God. The internet did not really have much to say on this topic except a few people either condemning it or saying it’s ok in moderation without much detail from that. Then I found Episode 115- Gaming to the Glory of God. I recommend this episode to all Christian gamers, especially if they are considering the same questions I had. Logan, Adam, and the many guests they have on the show prove that you can glorify God through gaming and parallel Biblical themes with the stories from games. I did not listen to podcasts much before I found this one. I look forward to every new episode! Thank you all for continuing to make good, quality content!

Top Notch Podcast!

Just listened to Episode 222, so good! So fun to hear the backstory of how Camilla, Logan’s wife got into gaming. Great job guys! The artwork, production, and content is top notch!

Deer Listeners

Awesome podcast. When I discovered you guys two years ago, I went back and listened from the very beginning. Now it’s a bummer because only one episode comes out at a time. Love to see what the future holds for TRG. Keep it up, you have a lot of supporters out here!

Words are hard, but TRG goes harder!
