Customer Reviews

Sidstah ,

Well formed, insightful, and fun opinions on a variety of subjects in the gaming domain.

I’ve been listening to the platformers on my way to work and it really makes my hour commute zoom by.

I find the topics generally germane to gaming and things that, as a nerd myself, am usually interested in.

I enjoy it when they discuss movie trailers, you generally get some tidbit of info about the movie, or universe it is set in, that you wouldn’t have known otherwise.

The real meat of the podcast is the game reviews. Most of the time they will break down the general feel of the game, its mechanics, and discuss unique features of it.

I recommend the plarformers! Great podcast personalities and entertaining material.
