Day 1

I have been listening since day one and I think this is a great podcast, keep it up, sorry so short not used to reviewing anything.

whydoineedanocknametoreview ,

I really want to be able to get into this show

Found this podcast a few months back. Liked that there were themes or shows that would focus on specific games. Mainly I wanted to hear about games I liked, was going to play, or figure out if a game I hadn’t played was worth it.
What I got was a 90 minute show about anchor with bits and pieces of video game related content interspersed.
You guys are clearly passionate about games but I feel like the show needs a lot of tightening up. Even on 2x speed the gaps between talking few like forever.
You have a formula but it also feels way too off the cuff for me. Please pick a direction. Either just be a group of folks talking about whatever comes to mind or stick to the points and be ready to go.

Again I really want to like it, but when I’m at minute 27 of a 90 minute show and you haven’t even started talking about what the episode was advertised to be about (in this instance FF VII r review). In 27 minutes I got three sponsor adds (I hear anchor is great), a plug for a charity, something about a meme and some sort of way too long song that I gave up on and fast forwarded through.

RPGs & Death Metal ,

The absolute best RPG podcast

In this podcast Bill and Rich (plus others occasionally) are playing through an insane amount of games, and you’ll have just as much fun listening to them talk about it. The banter is laugh out loud funny, the reviews are honest and fair, the opinions are expert but not elitist, and the excitement is contagious. For anyone with a passion for the genre, hit that subscribe button immediately.
