Hope It Comes Back Sometime....
I started listening to this podcast knowing it was pretty much done. Despite that, they were all great listens. All four of the guys are pretty knowledgeable about gaming in general, and they can be quite funny. I also really enjoyed the personal gaming stories that they shared. I think they are a bit older than the average gamer, which I am, and that made it a better experience for me. I realize people have lives, but I'm really going to miss this podcast and I hope that it will return in some form or another.
PS-Stop picking on Tom! :)
Cool guys that you'd like to hang out with.
These guys are so cool and down to earth that it's hard not to imagine hanging out with them and having a few beers and having a good time.
Not insane like diggnation, not pretentions like the publications.
Just hope the wives and girlfriends let them keep doing the show!
Video Gaming Opinions for the NPR Set
This the the most intelligent of all the current crop of video game podcasters. Since they are not video game "journalists" their opinions are very honest. And unlike almost every other video game podcast they don't seem to have been instructed to "make it sound extreme". Nope, if you wanted to hear a 45 minute reasonable discussion of the history of Infocom, this is the place. Their discussion segments also bring up some very interesting and insightful points, it isn't as frequent as others, but that is because these guys have a life. But that means when they do speak they have more to talk about.
