  • Fantastic

    When Elden Ring released I spent two weeks doing research to see if this was finally the time to jump into the world of Soulsborne. This podcast helped me make that decision. Really well thought out episodes, w fantastic relaying of levels and events and most importantly LORE. Also love the series on berzerk. So thoughtful and tastefully done. more

  • Phenomenal Elden Ring Companions

    This is a fantastic, and dare I say, crucial companion to Elden Ring (as well as other Dark Souls titles!). Gary and Kole are fantastic at exploring the lore and gameplay. I’m so glad I came across this podcast, and have happily been listening to the paid content as I make my journey to become Elden Lord!

  • "Kill the hype inside of you" oh but not if its a dark souls game. Double standards??

  • Ahhhh. So, yeah.

    Awesome content, but I don’t have any idea how Kole Ross got so many podcasts under his belt. With nothing but fake, forced laughter and super lame jokes not to mention ending every sentence with a fake chuckle and “ahhh…yeah..” it’s un listenable podcast without the content or the guests. Bad podcast manners Ross, and as far as Gary goes, dude needs to watch the words that he says. If there were more Dark Souls podcasts to listen to this one would be dust.
