love the show!! just sometimes I feel like there is rambling. sometimes I just stop listening because I want the topic to move on that's only my advice. love hearing the news and especially the cheap/free games because most of the time I know nothing about what is out there. thank you for the show

A great podcast with a bunch of dudes (sometimes a girl), having a great time talking about video games. Weekly news and viewpoints from a variety of generations, with the occasional comedic relief, and interactive questions from the community, all compacted into one clip. Great for a listen in the car or anywhere you go. The online discord community are great people! come check it out!
