Terrific Cast!

So glad the podcast did not end and has been rebranded as Press X. Having Mary back rounds out an excellent crew. The discussions are relevant, insightful and focused on gaming—exactly what the audience wants. Too many other gaming podcasts become social and political rants, so many thanks to these guys for avoiding that. The episode on games and consoles they experienced at certain points in their lives and the impact they left remains my favorite as I could relate to a lot of things being said. Keep up the great work!
