Gamers In Beta Podcast


Jul 20, 2015

It was a hot and humid night in New England. Therefore, we had some Thunder accompanying us during the show. On the most recent episode, we discuss topical items such as Windows 10, Activision re-releasing Prototype, upcoming betas for Call of Duty Black Ops III and Gears of War 4. Plus we run down the games releasing this week and other newsworthy items from the past week.
