The Gaming Outsider Podcast – Episode 089: Dropping Quarters in Arcades

Due to some technical issues we had to release late, but this week’s episode of The Gaming Outsider podcast is now live. In this episode, Scott, Robby and myself present a very fun community topic where we reminisce about arcade games and pick one cabinet we would love to have in our man caves. We discuss the latest gaming news including Rockstar’s rumored game about the biblical backstabber Judas and our thoughts on the June list of Xbox Games with Gold freebies. Scott gives us the skinny on Deep Silver’s poorly received new release Homefront: The Revolution. Also, Robby talks about his early impressions of Overwatch and the Doom fiasco that made him quit playing the game. Head on over to your favorite podcast platform of choice to grab the episode now or listen directly below. We apologize for the delay and hope you enjoy the show!
