Who are we?
"We are the overflow bin."
The story of our formation is simple: GameSkinny has a lot of interns, and these interns love podcasting and talking about games. The only problem is there’s only so much the GameSkinny Roundtable can talk about during our hour-long recordings sessions. So the solution we came up with was to create a spin-off podcast with a focus on console gaming! We’re just a group of gamers who love our consoles and who have a lot to say about them and their games. We know that there are others out there that feel the same way because, after all, #obscuritysucks.
We record on Thursday nights, with the edited episodes posted on the following Saturday. Episode 1 was recorded on August 22, 2013 at 10 pm EST.
