The Gaming Outsider Podcast – Episode 071: Experiencing Games for the First Time

This week’s extra goofy edition of the Weekly Update with Scott, Josh, Zach and Robby presents a new community topic centering around games that we would love to experience for the first time all over again as if we never played them before.  Discussions over the week’s latest gaming news are here too, including yet another disappointing delay from Inafune’s Mighty Number 9, the sequel to indie darling Her Story which is currently in the works and our excitement over Platinum Games’ upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle game. Also, the gang talks about all of the games they’ve been playing this week, including Rainbow Six: Siege, A Boy and His Blob, Oxenfree, the Uncharted collection and more. Head over to your favorite podcast platform of choice (iTunes, Stitcher, TuneIn) or listen directly below by pressing play on the media player. Don’t forget to leave us reviews on iTunes, Stitcher and TuneIn as well which we would GREATLY appreciate. Thanks and enjoy!

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.
