    Final Fantasy X, Episode 9: Wedding Crashers feat. Jenny Windom

    Jenny Windom joins us as we head into Bevelle, which is essentially a greatest hits segment of everything that makes Final Fantasy X great.

    We start the show battling on an airship and end with a quiet moment between our heroes in Macalania Woods. There's a lot in between, so strap in.

    Enjoy the show!

    Final Fantasy X, Episode 8: Homeward Bound feat. Kyle Campbell

    Kyle Campbell joins us as we head into the Al Bhed safe haven called Home. Only to find that it's not as safe as we hoped for. This week we talk about Wakka's inability to just not be a racist a*****e, Tidus' journey from a*****e jock to the protagonist he was always meant to be, and finally learn about the secret nobody wanted him to know since his arrival in Spira.

    Enjoy the show!

    BioBits - Posters, Posting, and Being Online

    BioBits - Posters, Posting, and Being Online

    Well, another N7 Day has come and gone, and this time there was a poster teasing the next Mass Effect game. And folks, our hosts somehow found a way to talk about it for an hour. In a new episode of BioBits, our BioWare news show, we talked about what it's like being online when people are speculating about a game we know nothing about and don't seem to actually care what it looks like as long as they get more.

    Enjoy the show!

    BioBits - The Cycle Continues

    BioBits - The Cycle Continues

    Hello Normandy crew. It has been a hot minute since we talked about BioWare on this podcast, but luckily we have an excuse to now, as People Make Games has scooped both our hosts and has talked with some ex-BioWare devs about what it was like to be in that studio during the Mass Effect 3 ending controversy.

    It's time for another episode of our BioWare news show BioBits, where we'll talk about some original drafts of the ending, the controversy's affect on how we talk about video games online, and how freeing it can be to criticize something without expecting it to be changed. Enjoy the show!

Reflex OneTwoThree ,

Thank you

I've had a lot of hit-or-miss luck with podcasts, but found this group in the midst of a great streak. I simultaneously have some "I wanna fight you on that" moments as well as some really strong "YES, EXACTLY THAT, YAY" moments.
I haven't even TOUCHED a lot of the podcast at this point, but knowing this podcast is here is definitely encouraging me to pick up some ME games as well as dive into another Inquisition run just so I can come back and see how well we match up (and where we differ) with our Inquisitors.
Thank you for being here and doing what you do.

Crash Chords ,

Great pod. Great hosts.

These gents are a genuine delight. The show is a blast. The guests are stellar. If you’re a Mass Effect and Dragon Age fan it’s a must listen. They go so in-depth it’s like hanging with friends and just chatting about games.

It’s easily the second best BioWare related podcast ever made.

Thoughtful and relaxed BioWare banter

Kenneth Shepard and Eric Van Allen talk about beloved BioWare series like Dragon Age and Mass Effect. Their back and forth feels like listening to good friends debate and come together, and their guests are fantastic, especially when they disagree with the hosts.
