Gamers In Beta Podcast


Jul 13, 2015

With a recent death in my family, Episode 110 was just what I needed to escape, albiet briefly, the mourning process. I thank DeviousMrMatt and MAINEac17 for coming on the show and providing me with some laughs.

We discuss a wide array of subjects this week and not all of them necessarily are about gaming. And this is exactly why we enjoy having Matt on the show, we can bounce back and forth between subjects without skipping too many beats.

When it comes to gaming, we did discuss our thoughts on maybe the over saturation of The Walking Dead franchise. Jay and Matt talk about their recent exploits in The Witcher 3. And CapnMikeM finally gets to play something other than Batman or The Witcher. Listen as he talks about Portal Pinball, Tales from the Borderlands, and Rocket League.

Lastly, we also discuss news items around Destiny, Gears of War, Batman Arkham Knight, Black Ops III, and more. We hope you listen to Episode 110 as you enjoy your summer.
