Gaming Done Well
This is an interesting gaming podcast. It tends to follow the same format as some popular gaming shows, but it also seems to break it when necessary. There are episodes dedicated to just covering the week in news while others are just focused on the big game(s) of the week. I enjoyed their game of the year and Fall preview shows and can't wait to see that return this year hopefully. I do find the lack of stability among hosts to be a bit jarring, but it also allows for fresh and interesting perspectives on a constant basis.
I would recommend this if looking for a more low-key, good-natured video game podcast.
