Great podcast

Chris and Shane have a great dynamic- a good blend of funny and informative, and always thoughtful. Recommended for anyone who liked video games and the occasional loud noise.

Passionate, Thoughtful and Funny

Shane and Chris have great chemistry and their consistent quality is a testament to how passionate they are about the subject, even when the games they play are not so good. Keep up the good work fellas.
