Fun entertaining podcast

I like this podcast. No-filter critique and discussion by real gamers who play almost everything coming out.

passionate and thoughtful games discourse

Bad End has quickly become the content I most look forward to for work commutes. If passionate and thoughtful games discourse is Your Thing you can’t do much better than hanging out with Caty, Josh, and Kyle for the bi-weekly episode. I appreciate the focus on games big and small, and that it never feels like a race to get through talking points. Finally, bonus points for not being the “official” podcast of Some Company.

Bad End Part 2

I wrote a huge review here like 6 weeks ago and it vanished, so I guess I'll write it again.

Bad End is the most refreshing videogame podcast I have listened to in years. Where the rest of the game industry and it's periphery have become dull and repetive, Bad End dares to critique and open up a real discussion on the nature of and news around games. You don't get bull, and you get honest opinions. There's a lot of value to that. You aren't going to hear many other podcasters talking about how they aren't even sure if they want to play games in the future; that games are becomming sophisticated dopamine loops with no real value. But you might hear such a challenging idea here.

While it can be serious in it's discussions the hosts are all funny and a treat to listen to. The humor is clever, self referential and fresh. You'll also learn about a lot of cool upcoming games.

Overall super dope! Give them a listen!
