NicheCast – Episode 11

So you’re a regular visitor at Niche Gamer? The obscure games, the niche games, the weird games, whatever you want to call them, we love them and we know that you love them as well. We only cover these games on our regular feed, and we only cover them on our podcast as well.

The topic of the week for this week is whether or not the term “indie game” comes with a negative connotation. We clearly love indie games of all shapes and sizes here at Niche Gamer, but it seems like the larger sites like IGN and the like have somewhat of an identity crisis when it comes to covering indie games – thus bringing out the trolls from the woodwork. We tackle this with our regular logic and charm.

You can enjoy our podcast below, or you can download it here (right click and save as).

The songs in today’s podcast are Soldier Unleashed from the Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer official soundtrack, which you can listen to and buy here. The closing song is The Krypton Garden from Shatter, which you can listen to and buy here.

The giveaway for this week is quite a fun one – Cody, our resident staff writer and artist, will sketch the greatest suggestion he finds in our comments. The only line we’ll draw here is that it can’t involve (visible) dongs or vaginas or anything – it has to more or less be agreeable with our advertising companies, sadly.
