A Solid Chill Podcast

Easy to listen to, capable of covering a sizable amount of information accurately in a reasonable timeframe, and just all around comfy. What else are you looking for in your vidya news podcasts? Definitely an hour and a half well-spent.

Linkyheart ,

Got a spare hour? Give em a listen

Fun, informed, and entertaining! Definitely appreciate them attempting to find anything interesting from the Ubisoft direct. Can't wait to see what they talk about next (especially Nintendo direct cause Metroid Dread hype).

Top Tier

What happens when you combine an insane love for Banjo-Kazooie with an equally insane love for Dark Souls-games?
