Undiscovered Gem!

This show is really insightful, well put together, and just overall high-quality. Each episode combines news and current topics with deeper, in-depth conversations about games. You’ll be hard pressed to find something this genuine and under the radar in the games podcast scene - it’s an undiscovered gem!

Not enough groceries, but we’ll survive

Look, a video game podcast can be done in a ton of different formats, but it works best when the hosts are able to make it feel like you’re just sitting down, hanging out, and chatting passionately about the industry. Maybe buy some groceries together while you’re at it, Amazon fresh lets you do that from your couch now, I hear. Regardless, Adam and Liz have a great friend energy that’s engaging from the start. They play off of each other brilliantly, they walk you through any topic effectively in case you may not be familiar with what’s being discussed, and they have incredibly engaging conversations about such a wide range of topics you won’t be able to help but check out their next one!

The Greatest Story Ever Played ,

Listen to this podcast!

Each week Adam and Liz talk about a specific topic related to gaming. Ranging from topics like "The Case for Short Games" to "Difficulty in Games". They also discuss each episode of Life is Strange 2 as it is released.
