Customer Reviews

Listen to this like you’d listen to good friends talk about games n’ stuff.

While it’s true that Shacknews is a gaming news website, its real value is its community: a collection of amazing people and personalities from around the planet and from all walks of life, sharing a common passion for video games. This passion can be seen through a number of lenses—culture, politics, entertainment—in a place on the site simply called The Chatty, where the community converges. The Shacknews podcast takes a weekly snapshot of that place, covering topics suggested by the community itself, and serves it up with commentary that is entertaining, relatable, and insightful. Because the suggestions are absolutely random, the fact they may have anything to do with games at all can often be completely coincidental. Shacknews Senior Editor Steve Watts leads the shenanigans, and is usually joined by Ozzie Mejia, Steven Wong, along with a rotating cast of guest panelists from the site and its daily livestreams; the variety definitely keeps perspectives and opinions fresh from week to week. On its tenth week at the time of this review, the crew and their colorful personalities have become a warmly welcomed addition to my slate of podcast subscriptions.

Great Format, Uneven Hosts.

I love the format, it brings something new to gaming podcasts. I'm into how they save the "what have you been playing?" until last, its a strong end to the show. However Stephen spends his time trying to be the funny one, never contributing actual information, and Josh is all around unexperienced and states the obvious far too often. He feels like a fan that got a seat on the show because they couldnt find someone better. Otherwise, its a worthy listen if they can manage to smooth out the hosts and keep things moving and up to date.

The Chattycast is the answer

The question is "what is the best gaming podcast in the known universe?" Host Steve Watts is joined by guests from the Shacknews staff (Ozzie Mejia, Daniel Perez, Steven Wong, etc) and their extended network of friends, family and colleagues to discuss the gaming news of the week, what games panelists are playing, and ultimately have some serious [LOL]s along the way. The show is now being recorded live on Wednesday afternoons in front of a live YouTube audience and goes up onto various podcast services on Thursday. Truly an amazing podcast that any gamer will benefit from subscribing to. If you were a fan of Weekend Confirmed, this is Shacknews' spiritual successor to the show. The Chattycast encourages community feedback to expand the conversation beyond a few game journalists jibber jabbering. The end result is a tremendously entertaining collaboration between the staff and community of Shacknews.

Awesomeness Confirmed.
