Favorite podcast, genuine and informative

So many other podcasts sound like they’re just reading game new. Here, the hosts are very much speaking their mind and giving original feedback and comments. Love you guys, thanks for this show! Don’t change anything, awesome show exactly the way it’s done now!

One host good, one host bad

This podcast has one host that plays WoW regularly, and seems to enjoy himself. The other doesn’t, but talks far more about Blizzard and has much stronger opinions. Each week, expect a rant about Blizzard that lasts half the episode, where she repeats everything she always says.

I’ve enjoyed this podcast in the past, but hearing the same rant week after week is very annoying, especially from someone who isn’t interacting at all with the actual games. There’s no doubt a big audience for this kind of thing, but it’s just not for me.

My Favorite Gaming Podcast

I enjoy listening to Bree & Justin chat MMOs. There is a certain place in my heart for MMOs and with all the toxicity in the political environment today, Bree & Justin are a nice, calming breath of fresh air on this subject I love. We have lots in common from my love/hate relationship for LotRO due to the shenanigans I’ve had to endure if I wanted to continue playing, to the nostalgia I feel when Bree talks about UO and SWG.

Keep up the great work and hit me up anytime on LotRO.
