NicheCast – Episode 13

stephen hawking

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

We haphazardly recap the announcements and press conferences from Gamescom 2014. How do we think Sony and Microsoft performed?

During the madness we proceed to answer fan questions, crack totally inappropriate jokes, and generally have a good time. In case you’re completely weirded out by Stephen Hawking psychically dual wielding two Sora’s who are both dual wielding key blades, give it a listen!
