The Gaming Outsider Podcast – Episode 099: Excuses for Gaming

Happy Wednesday everyone! We have a hump day treat for you… a new episode of The Gaming Outsider podcast! This week Scott, Josh and Robbie discuss the latest gaming news including Robby’s take on the whole Nintendo NX information leak, the man who spent $2000 on an early copy of No Man’s Sky, a possible Harry Potter GO, and more. Games we discuss this week are Josh’s impressions of Star Fox Zero, Scott’s feelings on Spelunky and Telltale’s Batman series, and Robby’s progress on Red Dead Redemption and 10 Second Ninja. Our community topic is all about the excuses we’ve made in the past in order to get out of our responsibilities so we can play more video games!

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.
