Customer Reviews


Rocco DeMaro is destined for some great things. He pilots a fantastic podcast that happens to be about video games, but could really, entertain a much broader audience. If you are into gaming, this is a cant miss show.

My favorite podcast

There's a lot of great aspects to this podcast. Rocco DeMaro is truly a master of the craft. The editing, guests, humor, and general flow of the cast are all on point. The video games component of Side Mission Briefing is great and you won't find it lacking if you're a hardcore gamer, but for me - it's everything else that this podcast brings to the table that make it elite. There's a ton of cultural stylings, humor, and even some deeper moments. Rocco is such a great host, you feel like you really get to know him and whatever guests appear on the show.

I highly recommend going back and re-working through the entire series, it makes it all the more enjoyable to get the references back to other shows. Thank you GameTrailers and Mr. DeMaro for providing this wonderful free podcast, it's great!

One man army

Rocco is an incredible host for a very enjoyable podcast. The show has a strong personality, sometimes enhanced by the participations of his wife. Trust me, it’s interesting - they share some cool stories about gaming.

He also manages to keep attracting incredible guests, taking the conversation to high levels (I got Goosebumps listening to his conversation with Randy Pitchford from Gearbox).

The show is personal, authentic, and Rocco clearly love games. It’s easy to relate to his approach to games – particularly his ‘pile of shame’. Anyone who enjoy gaming and have a busy life will know what he’s talking about. :-)

You unlocked a true fan here, sir. That’s some achievement!
