The USgamer Podcast: A Cuphead Review, SteamWorld Dig 2, Wrapping the SNES Classic

PODCAST | SteamWorld Dig 2, Cuphead, Forza Motorsport 7, SNES Classic, and more on the latest episode of our flagship podcast!

The USgamer Podcast is our weekly flagship podcast that is updated every Wednesday. You can find the previous episodes here.

The SNES Classic is here! And somehow, only Nadia's really messed around with it yet. Plus, we talk the grueling difficulty (but pleasant animation) of Cuphead, the mechanically-pleasing SteamWorld Dig 2, the loot box controversies of Forza Motorsport 7, and more in the latest episode of our flagship podcast! (download link here).

After our little lost episode kerfuffle last week, The USgamer Podcast is back on a (hopefully) weekly basis again. October's going to be a crazy month, but with the SNES Classic, a new Forza, and a controversial run-and-gun game with impeccable style in our midst, we're nowhere near short on podcast fodder. Join us for these topics, and as customary for these episodes, a point that makes Caty seem like a baby and makes Mike and Nadia feel very, very old.

We're here for you every Wednesday, so please subscribe! If you like what you hear, check out the Axe of the Blood God RPG podcast on Fridays!
