The Gaming Outsider Podcast – Episode 056: A Playstation Experience

We’re excited to present our newest weekly update episode of The Gaming Outsider podcast to you all this week. In this episode we welcome a good friend of the show, Alaina Grimm, to discuss her experience attending the 2015 Playstation Experience event in San Francisco last weekend. We cover all of the biggest game announcements, discuss that epic Final Fantasy VII Remake trailer, and hear Alaina’s thoughts on the show overall and what she saw behind the scenes. As always each week the gang discusses what games they’re currently playing and jump into our weekly community topic. This week’s topic asks our community to pick three games that they would keep if they were only allowed to play those three games for the rest of their lives and nothing else.
