The Gaming Outsider Podcast – Episode 081: The Great Framerate Debate

Happy Wednesday folks! It’s that time of the week again and we have another fun episode of The Gaming Outsider podcast! This week we welcome a very special guest. Grant Henry from the musical group Stemage, and the creator of Metroid Metal, joins the group to discuss his latest project, the current gaming news and what we’ve all been playing. Grant dives into Trackmania Turbo on the PC while Josh shares his love for Stardew Valley. Also, Scott shares his first experience with his first “Souls” game, Bloodborne. The big community topic this week creates a debate on the frame rate and how important it is to all of us. We include some of Grant’s Metroid covers in the show as well. Drop on by your favorite podcasting platform (iTunes, Stitcher, TuneIn) to listen to the show now. Thanks and enjoy!
