The Gaming Outsider Podcast – Episode 086: Ideal Gaming Conventions and Expos

Happy Wednesday everyone! Sorry for the delay but we now have the latest episode of The Gaming Outsider podcast for the week of May 4th, 2016 available for your listening pleasure. In this episode we discuss the latest in gaming news including Nintendo’s frustrating Zelda delays, Mighty Number 9’s date shift AGAIN, and the scoop on the new Call of Duty titles releasing this Holiday season. In our “whatcha been playing” segment, I take one for the team and discuss the botched PC release of Quantum Break while also giving my impressions on the Overwatch beta. Scott talks about his time with the Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst beta, Robby gives us the details on FIFA 16 and Neverending Nightmate, and Zach gushes over the latest Dawn of War III trailer. Our community topic centers around gaming conventions and what we prefer to see at these shows. Prepare yourself for a heated debate this week! Also, listen for a special message from an awesome voice actor in the industry. Thanks and enjoy!
