The Gaming Outsider Podcast – Episode 084: Video Games Are Not Toys!

The Gaming Outsider podcast has a new episode now available on this glorious Wednesday. This week we welcome back community guest Chase Christensen to discuss all things video games. For the weekly news, we discuss the new Street Fighter V patch and the inclusion of a new DLC character, a rumored Batman: Arkham remaster collection and the possibility of an upcoming Red Dead Redemption sequel on the horizon. The gang also discusses all of the games they’re playing this week including a LOT of Dark Souls III talk, the Fallout 4 downloadable content, Ratchet & Clank on Playstation 4 and more. Our community topic this week centers around the stigma that video games are just for kids. Is this a mentality people possess or are video games much more accepted as a hobby for adults?
