EVERYTHING IS RACIST

Feels scripted and like a long advertisement

By Mike271821 - Oct 18 2018

The podcasts feel incredibly scripted and overall like one long advertisement for the games they talk about. I don’t want to be actively sold something I want to hear natural conversation about the games. The hosts also have a strange dynamic that doesn’t feel natural. One if overly enthusiastic like a late night talk show host and the other just answers questions like his guest. Not really enjoyable. They need to take a note or two from The Vergecast.
