Historical surprise

I was searching for a podcast about Dragon Age Inquisition and this popped up. So I downloaded it and the episode was about DAI AND The Witcher 3, which I prefer to play. Without any clue of what it was about I listened to it and couldn't stop with just one episode. Delving into actual history with actual scholars on the topic was a great surprise and I'm glad I gave it a chance and you will too once you listen.

An outstanding podcast - one of a kind

History Respawned brings historical detail and depth to the video games we love to play. It's a great way to learn more about the historical background to video games--and let's face it, it's hard to play games like Assassin's Creed, Far Cry Primal, and Bioshock, and not wonder at least a little, "What's the real history behind that?" Bob and John are historians in their own right, but equally as important, they are gamers and understand and love video games for what they are. This is the podcast for anyone interested in history and games.
