Awesome!!!

Just got through my first episode and especially after recently getting myself a PS5 the show really gets excited about future games and DLC as well as talking about things happening recently and you can tell they are true Sony PlayStation fans and it’s really cool to geek out while listening definitely can’t recommend enough. 5 stars easily

Needs less Justin and Sid

I wish the show could just be Tim, Kristen, and Bret. I could really do without Justin or Sid. I feel dumber listening to those two with their “uhhhs” and “ummms” every two seconds, their frequent tangents that derail the conversations, and just find them annoying. Justin is the definition of a “simp” as he always flirts with the women that he interviews, brags about his son and life in the Bay Area like a true millennial, and somehow always makes the conversation about Destiny 2 or Final Fantasy XIV. Sid has his annoying one liners, is super judgmental about everything from movies to bagels, always compliments games he has never even played, and disrespects the ones he’s never heard of.

I’ve listened since the beginning when it was just Sid and Jeff Rubenstein, and I hate that I have to force myself to listen to this every week hoping to not hear Justin or Sid’s voice.
