There’s a newish podcast out there put on by Blake Leftwich of Salute Games, Matthew Taylor of The Robot Gamer, and Stephen Smith of Kombo.com and Video Game Collector. The show focuses on the guys discussing games that have slipped through through to release without getting much buzz or attention. As they do this, they often bring up other issues and discuss what they’ve been playing recently. This is one of my favorite gaming podcasts because these guys are exactly what you’d figure a hardcore gamer should be. No, they’re not Dew slammin’ loudmouths that run out and grab every first person shooter, Madden, and open world hyperviolent sandbox game. They’re real hardcore gamers that know gaming’s past, it’s current trends, and can properly identify positives and negatives of a game’s gameplay, artistic direction, and technical aspects.
Give the show a listen. The show can be found on iTunes or you can subscribe directly to the feed at www.salutegames.com/utr.xml. And for what it’s worth, The Stupid Gamer Podcast is coming back too, hopefully this week!
