Episode 8 - The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Welcome back, everyone! We took a bit of a break to figure out how to move forward, and we're ready to get back into action! Albert and I are back with a good friend of ours, Alex, who will be joining us from now on. We take a deep-dive into one of the best RPGs of the last decade. As you can probably tell, we changed up the format a little bit; we'll be focusing on just the retrospective from now on. News will still be around though! It'll just be a separate podcast that is coming very soon.  You can find all of our content (reviews, features, and of course, podcasts!) at our website: http://www.viewportgaming.com It would be much appreciated if you share this with your friends and family if you enjoyed listening to it!
