The USgamer Podcast is our weekly flagship podcast that is updated every Wednesday. You can find the previous episodes here.
The USgamer podcast is back... again! Join Nadia, Caty, Mike, and myself as we gab about all the latest in gaming! (download link here).
Hello, hello. Yes, we have returned. And yes, this wonderful podcast is going to be a weekly thing, as if you couldn't get enough of our RPG Podcast Axe of the Blood God already. This is a roller coaster episode, as we talk the recent Discourse around Hellblade and its maybe-permadeath. We also go over what else we've been playing that doesn't have hell and blade in the same name, from the recent Mayo-prevailing Splatfest to Mike discovering the glory of the Yakuza series for the very first time. Plus, some Mega Man talk as Caty takes a nap, because why the heck not.
Our cast this week is our resident Editor-in-Chief-mom Kat, along with Mike, Caty, and Nadia. Our big topic this week revolves around the non-issue on everyone's minds: what does good permadeath in games look like? Why do people get so mad about it? Can't they just like, I dunno, play another game or something?
We'll be back every Wednesday with a new episode with our ever-rotating cast of USgamer team members (we're a small bunch—just five of us on the editorial end, not counting guides). Hope you're enjoying our freshly rebooted podcast, and stay tuned for episode three next week!
