EXP Podcast #664: Rogue Legacy 2 Debrief
It's time again for us, our children, and our children's children to throw ourselves into the castle that is Rogue Legacy 2. It's been ages since the last game game out - and over 420 episodes, so there are some major changes. But does it reignite our passion and meet the standards of today's Rogue-lites?
All this and more in this week's debrief!

EXP Podcast #663: Gaming with The Batman
After watching the recent Batman movie, we came to a couple conclusions: 1) Batman's gamer tag is probably "V3ngence_420" and 2) there are some very interesting parallels between this latest cinematic take on the caped crusader and recent video game portrayals. This week we dive into the movie as well as various Batman games and how they've built on such an iconic character.

EXP Podcast #659: The Playstation Plus Premium Puzzle
The video game subscription scene got a bit more crowded this week after Sony revealed their new PlayStation Plus tiers. It's clear they're leaning into the retro angle as well as streaming games, but how does it compare to what Microsoft and Nintendo are doing? This week we do some analysis as well as grapple with the tangled web of monthly recurring bills that has come to comprise the bulk of our entertainment budgets.
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.
