Fresh Takes on Video Games

In a sea of video game podcasts, I would have to recommend the Donkey Con Artists. They bring about fresh takes compared to your normal podcast filled with industry professionals. The bulk of this group are just average gamers with different tastes talking about how they view the latest video game news. Love it.

Great Overall Show

Really digging listening to these two talk video games. The show has a great balance- you can tell these guys love games, but they don't overwhelm the listener with jargon. It's super approachable to listen to. You can tell this is a passion project. Please keep up the good work Pat and Eddie!

Keep up the great work

Great stuff guys. Love hearing all the news in the video game world which I would otherwise not know. The reviews and input on each game are great. I can definitely tell the amount of research and time has been put into each critique and review of the games discussed. The interviews are great, music intro is great but my one problem would be, I'd love a backstory or intro going into the interviews rather then cutting to the music. Throughout all the podcasts when it went to the interviews I was surprised because either Edmund or Pat would be talking and then music hits and bam, interview and I'm left wondering what just happened. So some more fluidity in that aspect would be great as a listener. Other than that I look forward to episode seven and more. Sidenote, Destiny is amazing and Pat I didn't appreciate your disapproval of Destiny. So get a PS4 and come play the game with me. I was a non believer in the beginning as well but it turned out to be a great game.
