A must listen if you enjoy video games
Great podcast! Manages to be both charming, funny and insightful.
I never listened to split screen but I jumped on this from the beginning. Insightful and thought-provoking discussions about video-games and I can't get enough. It's cool to see a bit behind the scenes of video-game journalism. The takes and perspectives the hosts offer helps me engage more productively with the games I play.
Wooop woop! Looking forward to this!!!
I know this will be gold, just a hunch 😉✌️⭐️
