EXP Podcast #594: Hades Debrief
Like Zagreus himself, we have risen and are ready to throw ourselves against Hades once again. This time, it's a full debrief with plenty of discussion about the late-game mechanics and the story. I'd say spoilers, but you should know by now that there is no escape. Crack open a pomegranate and take in all of the Underworld's delights.
EXP Podcast #563: A Crossover Episode
Sonic in Fall Guys. Steve in Smash Bros. What's next, the car-insurance gecko in Spiderman? This week on the EXP Podcast, we tackle brand synergy and where it does (and doesn't) make sense to invade one world with the characters of another.

EXP Podcast #592: Hades First Impressions
Ever get the feeling that you're endlessly pushing a boulder up a hill? Or perhaps a self-important, washed up king won't stop blathering in your direction? Or maybe a bone hydra keeps mauling you? Well you're either in the year 2020 or in Hades (maybe both). This week we dive into Supergiant's latest game to compare our load outs and our interactions with all those weirdo relatives from Olympus!
EXP Podcast #591: Spelunky 2 Debrief
Get your bombs, ropes, and jetpacks ready folks; it's time for Spelunky 2! This week on the EXP Podcast, we debrief one of this year's most anticipated games, get into the philosophy of getting good, and hate on the mole rats with a fiery passion. This game, like its predecessor, is nearly endless, so I fully expect to come back to this game as the months (and years) continue.

EXP Podcast #590: Spiritfarer and The Last Campfire First Impressions
Look, let's be real: Jorge and I recorded this before Spelunky 2 came out because we knew we'd be doing nothing but playing Spelunky 2 by this point in the week. Furthermore, I'm highly confident that you, dear listener, are playing Spelunky 2 as well. In fact, at this point I just assume that everyone is playing it, so the best I can hope is that this show serves as a nice Spelunky 2 soundtrack. List closely though: if you need a Spelunky 2 break, we give some positive recommendations on Spiritfarer and The Last Campfire. Both games are quite charming and might be a good break from the adorable chaos in which we are all relishing.
EXP Podcast #589: Series S&M
This week on the EXP Podcast, we discuss the surprisingly affordable Xbox Series S ($299), just hours before Microsoft announced the price of the One X ($499). Both consoles are cheaper than expected! But if you want to be artificially gouged, there's also a Mario bundle coming out.

Great insight, hilarious, geeky
Very interesting and in-depth podcast about games, game communities, game mechanics, and the game industry. I look forward to this every week.
One of the best gaming podcasts out there
I’ve been listening for about a year and a half now, and I’ve got to say these guys are criminally underrated.
Their debriefs, even if I don’t agree with many of them, are very well thought out and often lead to you having a better understanding about what works/what didn’t in a game. For example, their breath of the wild debriefs were incredibly funny and engaging, and underscored what made that game so special. Their weekly discussion topics are refreshing to listen to as opposed the usual news roundup of other podcasts. Finally, their end of the year content is always really fun to listen to.
Great gaming discussion
EXP is always a treat to listen to. At the start of the episode, I don't know whether I get a thoughtful review, a nostalgic trip, or a hilarious debate, but it is always a good time.
