USgamer's Podcast has a Name, and Also a New Episode

We greet the new year by making unreasonable demands of the new year. But first, we vote on a proper name for the show.

Now that we've reached our third episode of the USgamer podcast, it's about time we come up with a proper name for this here production. Handily, we have you, our cool readers, to help on that front.

Thanks to reader Jimbo McCoy, the USgamer Podcast Extravaganza no longer has a tentative name! We haven't retitled the feed just yet so as not to spoil this show, though — we spend the first segment mulling over your suggestions and picking a winner. Sadly, we didn't go with AXE OF THE BLOOD GOD, but it was close. The rest of the podcast concerns our hopes and expectations for 2015 — the usual fare, really, but with the lovable USgamer touch to set it apart.

You can download the full episode directly from this link via Libsyn. We're also on iTunes; those of you who refuse to pledge your allegiance to Apple can insert our RSS feed into the app of your choice.

Of course, you can always just listen here in the browser via the SoundCloud embed above.

Full info as follows:
