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.

Topic of the Week

It’s time for our Gamescom 2014 predictions. What are Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo bringing? What about our European developer friends? We share our best guesses, and our biggest hopes for the upcoming convention, which goes down in Cologne, Germany.
