Customer Reviews

Matt & Satchell are Great!

Overworld consists of two portions: The first is headed by Matt Perez and Satchell Drakes. They invite excellent guests on the show and have an insightful conversation about how games and the people that play them tick. I always thoroughly enjoy this portion. The second portion is headed by Erik Kain and Paul Tassi, wherein they voice opinions formed in an echo chamber built with ignorance and lack of experience. Thankfully the first portion of the show is great enough to recommend on its own.

As for why the second portion irks me so much, the example from today's show is the assertion that games with voiced protagonists will always be better than those with silent ones. Previously, it was that all non-regenerative health systems in first person shooters are bad. Having these opinions is fine, but these gentlemen present them as if they are fact; That their opinions are the be-all and end-all for game design. These are the two examples that stand out in my mind as of right now, but every episode grants one of these nuggets of 'wisdom' without fail.

Great Podcast! Erik and Paul are funny and knowledgeable

I’ve been reading Paul and Erik’s pieces on Forbes for about a year and a half now and was ecstatic to hear they have a podcast! I think what has been talked about so far by them has been good and very funny. I find myself checking what day of the week it is to see if there’s a new episode from them (every Thursday, mark it down). A great show so far and I look forward to many more episodes. Keep up the good work guys!
