    WDGR Podcast Episode 139: The Very Last One!

    This is it folks. This is our very last episode. So let's make it a party, shall we?
    We had a very lively Twitch chat to join us as we celebrated 139 episodes of WDGR. Will and Drew talked about five games each want to beat after the show ends, including some long time thorns in their sides like Sekiro and Horizon: Zero Dawn.
    Plus, the two open up an extensive mailbag one last time, and take some time to address their future projects.

    WDGR Podcast Episode 138: Manly Indulgence

    It's the penultimate episode of WDGR, and as the clock ticks down on the final episode of the show, Will and Drew get together once more to chat about video games.
    Will brings us up to date on his Death Stranding experience. The game is getting even weirder, but he's into it. What is working for Will? Why hasn't he checked out with the creep factor?
    Drew's also diving into Twelve Minutes. How does the game sit with him? Is he enjoying the point and click puzzle adventure? Does he find himself losing interest?
    All this, plus Black Myth: Wukong, Quake in 4K, Hades, and the SNES 30th Anniversary!

    WDGR Podcast Episode 135: Maybe The Controller Will Wash The Dishes

    With the announcement of upcoming Director's Cuts for Death Stranding and Ghost of Tsushima, Will finds himself frustrated by the choices, as well as the gaming community. Are these upgrades to the PS5 versions worth the cost? Is Sony just charging extra for DLC? Or, is this something that's been going on for decades already?
    Plus, Drew has spend some time with The Ascent. Although his time has been brief, he's got some in-depth early impressions of the game. Where does he sit with the cyberpunk twin-stick shooter?
    All this, plus a weekend beach wedding and much more!

    WDGR Podcast Episode 134: Get Out of the Garbage

    Will's been sucked into PUBG, thanks to friends of the show Tom and Vic. How does this compare to Call of Duty Warzone? What was his first experience like with the beloved shooter? And how does crossplay function?
    Plus, Drew tried to take a nosedive into Microsoft Flight Simulator, but download issues and patches prevented him from taking off. What did he think of the experience once he was able to play? 
    All this, plus Planet Alpha, pizza, donuts, garbage, and more!

Will and Drew have a great perspective, but instead of sounding like insiders or tryhards, they really just invite you in for a couple of virtual beers to shoot the breeze about your favorite hobby...and maybe a few others along the way!

Who has time to play video games anymore?

While the two hosts give great insight into gaming and game mechanics, I love the ongoing discussion about backlogs, dedicating time to playing games, and giving priority to certain games to others. As a collector, I always find it interesting to see how others will prioritize certain games. Great show, I listen every week.

Excellent

Love this show. Always keeps me interested and always look forward to new episodes.
