Excellent indie review show
Great synergy between the presenters. I like that they are very positive despite obviously playing a lot of games...not the jaded gamer podcasters that are so common. Great format and fills a niche that other podcasts don't reach. Love it.
Such a relief to have a podcast that jumps right in to the reviews, no 10 minute preamble and no meandering outtro. It's all essential listening. I keep back episodes on file and refer during steam sales. Handy!
Edit: A real shame this show ended. It was the one show on Duckfeed that didn't require a wide knowledge of gaming in order to understand the content. Be great if it started up again.
Indie game podcast for people who are kinda meh on indie games
I was excited about this podcast because I wanted to learn more about indie games and hear the hosts’ opinions on the games I’ve played, but after listening to an episode or two, I learned they did not like Firewatch or Undertale. I’m open to listening to critiques of games I like. Their problems with Oxenfree were totally fair. But, I dunno, Firewatch and Undertale are the Ur-Indie Games. If you don’t like those, maybe you just don’t like indie games?
Introduces me to stuff I’ve either heard of, or just never thought to try. Also good for vicariously experiencing games I’ll never have time to play. Keep up the good work guys.
