Follow this show

This is one of the best video game podcasts in my opinion, unlike an actual play podcast they take the story from a game and make a script where if there is a game you wanted to play but never got around too can experience the story

Incredible show!

This has been such a fun find, the hosts are an absolute delight to listen to and they cover video games that are extremely relevant to my interests. I always have fun listening and feel like I’m part of the conversation- highly recommend for any fan of gaming podcasts!

Great Storytelling

What sets Tales from the Cartridge apart from other video game talkthroughs is the amount of preperation they put into each episode. Taking the time to write such good scripts makes it feel as if you're listening to an audiobook or radiodrama, especially when the voices are so good.
