Love the show
Absolutely love the show! Incredibly informative and funny at the same time, incredibly chemistry between Daemon and the rest of the crew
Very enjoyable to listen to. I used to “watch” their YouTube channel but now just do their podcast. Thanks so much IGN!
Good Overall Show (Could improve with more critical analysis)
Good mix of personalities and they manage to have a good blend of humor and casualness while still covering the news and not going off topic for too long.
They are a little hesitant to be critical. While I don’t want the stereotypical jaded gamer reaction to everything. It’s ok to acknowledge the ways in which a particular game, strategy or approach could backfire.
For example, their reaction to the Xbox Series S was so uniformly positive that it made them sound like they were Microsoft employees. The Series S is a bold move on Microsoft’s part but some of the hardware decisions (less ram than the top of the line last gen Xbox One, GPU that is significantly less powerful) definitely carry risk with it that I think were glossed over.
I suggest that after major news stories or developments they focus on Positives AND negatives.
