4.0 out of 5 stars from 117 ratings
  • Very informative podcast about gaming news

    The recording could be a little better but honestly the podcast is one of the best for keeping up with games industry news particularly from a European perspective

  • Great topics, AWFUL audio

    I love the conversations, knowledge, and discourse these guys bring to the table. But good god it is so hard to hear them, especially Chris. Every episode they are so soft-spoken and so muffled that I need to crank the volume, only to have my ear blown out by a random spike in volume. I’ve quit several episodes because I just can’t hear you guys. You gotta fix this.

  • Interesting, but…

    … please listen to your own podcast before you publish it! The volume is all over the place, with Chris’ volume typically very low, and the other host coming through so loudly it blows your eardrums out. I’m fiddling with volume all the way through the episodes, very annoying!

  • Great content, terrible quality

    As someone who works in the industry, it’s incredibly frustrating that this podcast is one of the best for news and analysis, but is nearly unlistenable due to the audio quality, between background noise and muffled voices. You guys have been doing this for years - invest in a microphone and turn off your Outlook chimes for half an hour!
