Good Chats and Great Format
It’s a great gaming podcast to add to your rotation. The folks here have great insight into gaming, with lovely guests, and a great format for Side Quest guest reviews.
I’d give this 10 stars but it only lets me give 5, so I’m giving it 5. You should give them 5 stars too because every episode is incredible. Especially love Side Quests!
For love of gamers and devs
Matt & Geoff go in-depth on both mechanics, history, and objective data around how various games/franchises/consoles were made and the impact that they had on society, as well as subjective perspectives on the impacts that they've had on individuals and smaller groups. It's a varied perspective from differing perspectives, inclusive, optimistic, and just diving into the joy of what videogames are, what they have been, and what we can best take from them.
With the addition of their new guest spots, they have short bites of love and joy for different games/franchises and why they matter. It's a GREAT and refreshing reminder of why we play and love the games that we do, as well as compelling reasons to investigate meaningful games that we may've missed out on!
