Don’t like zach r.
Matt came back
I’m so happy to see Matt Casamassina came back for an episode. I’ve been listening since day one and very glad to hear his opinion. With games like Giant dancing plushies it good to see him post apple. Thanks Super Ninfendos!
Good content but fix the audio!
For a podcast about gaming and technology within the brand of a huge video game company the audio is terrible. Strange noises, choppy quality, just not up to par for a modern podcast. Please buy good mics and improve your setup!
