Gamers In Beta Podcast 196: Too Much Sexy Going On

Direct Download to Episode 196

With Holiday schedules all out of whack, we recorded Episode 196 on a Friday this week, which meant Corey couldn’t join us. Jay attempted to partake in the fun but alas modern day conveniences like the internet were not on his side this week. Poor one out for ol’Jay.

So without those two chatterboxes, you’ll notice we have a much shorter/streamlined show for you. For an hour and a few mins, kick back with your leftover Easter candy and listen to us discuss topics like the discontinued NES, the growing popularity of the Nintendo Switch, more Project Scorpio details, and of course, the new Star Wars trailer.

Community responses, what we’ve been playing, and more news items are here too!
