It’s Wednesday and we have another exciting episode of The Gaming Outsider podcast available now for everyone via your favorite podcasting platform. This week we welcome community member Brandon Smith to the show to discuss our community topic centered around this whole Gamestop “circle of life” fiasco that came out a few weeks ago. We hear Robby’s take on the whole issue, who previously worked at Gamestop for 10 years, along with our community’s thoughts as well. Josh shares his early impressions of Nioh, we talk a bit about For Honor, and Scott tells us all about his experience with Among the Sleep. News this week includes Breath of the Wild’s season pass, E3 opening to the public and more. Don’t forget to check out our Patreon page as well at patreon.com/thegocast and consider subscribing for some great exclusive content. We hope you enjoy this episode and have an awesome week!
