The Gaming Outsider Podcast – Episode 093: Is Gaming Memorabilia Cool?

Happy Wednesday everyone! Episode 093 of The Gaming Outsider podcast is now available to everyone. This week our community topic is all about collecting video game memorabilia and whether or not you should feel ashamed to display it proudly. We discuss games we’ve been playing such as Zach’s first impressions of Doom, Josh’s feelings on Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, a bit of Elder Scrolls Online talk, and Scott tells us all about Asemblance on the PS4. News this week covers Inafune’s attitude on the botched Mighty Number 9 release and the confirmation of physical media on Nintendo’s mysterious NX console. You’ll also hear plenty about classic Nintendo game arguments, all about those Vans Nintendo shoes, and Scott’s secret nighttime ritual.

Video games played a huge part in his childhood and continued to do so in his adult life. Starting out on an Atari 2600 when he was 3 years old, gaming has sort of grown up alongside with Josh and continues to be his biggest hobby. As an IT technician by day, Josh is an aspiring gaming writer by night who founded a few websites including 16 Bit Heroes and Too Busy Gaming, while also dabbling in retro gaming YouTube videos and live streaming events.
