    PannenKoek2012 & Gamescom 2014!

    PannenKoek2012 & Gamescom 2014!

    He's the man who found the unkillable Goomba, and collected the uncollectable coin in Super Mario 64. Splashed across the front page of Yahoo, Kotaky and more, he's the irrepressible PannenKoek2012, the single greates font of wisdom for all things Super Mario 64. It's a fascinating discussion. (Also pinch hitting for DutchMogul is DigiPen's favorite son, Doug Zwick.)

Lbizz ,

Covers the questions and topics you wish you could ask

My favorite thing about the podcast is that it's always really casual questions with a great variety of guests, stuff that if I met up with devs at a con or something I'd want to ask. Love listening to these guys!

LaLa 1977 ,

So fun!

These guys have great rapport. I'm not a gamer, but I still love their wit and unique perspectives. For me, this podcast is totally playable. :-)

Dutch Mogul ,

Go for Rainbow is the best podcast in the known worlds

Of all of the podcasts I've listened to, this one is my favorite, and I've listened to, like, five or six podcasts.
