The USgamer Podcast: Farewell to Visceral Games, Nintendo's Review Policy, and a South Park Review

PODCAST | Kat, Caty, and Nadia cover all of this week's biggest news and games.

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

In the latest episode of the USgamer Podcast, we mourn the loss of Visceral, discuss Nintendo's heavy-handed review policy, and review South Park (download link here)!

Visceral's abrupt closure has sparked questions about the future of big-budget single-player games, and what it means to be inundated with "games as services." We tackle all of this in our discussion, while also covering some of Visceral's history and their struggle to expand beyond Dead Space. Also in this podcast: A South Park review! And we talk about the fact that no one can seem to get hold of a copy of Mario Odyssey yet! (In North America, at least).

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!
