NicheCast – Episode 06

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.

This week, we get back into routine with the news post E3 2014, and we discuss a few hot topics that are currently raging the interwebs and forum-goers. The topic of the week? Is Phil Fish right? Should let’s players on Youtube have to pay up when they run advertisements on video featuring games they didn’t create (or own the rights to)?

Also, if you’re wondering where the horrifying fan art for a human Cat-Dog (or the joking subtitle for that matter) came from, LISTEN to the podcast!

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

Starting today, we’ll be raffling off six Playstation Now beta codes for the Playstation 4! All you have to do is comment on our podcast here with some feedback on how we’re doing – if you liked it, hated it, cried tears of joy, and so on. The codes we have are for North American PS4 users or account holders only, so apologies to our international readers!

Again please write in to Niche Gamer-cast @ Niche Gamer with any questions, comments, and so on that you guys have. We will respond to any emails we get on the air during the next show!

Also, if you want your band, music, and so on featured in our next podcast as the end song, write in with your music! We’ll be happy to feature it!

Songs featured in this podcast: Sunset Heroes from God Hand (for the Playstation 2), and Stimulation from Capcom VS. SNK 2 (for various systems).

    Making my way through the podcast and some thoughts. Been on the fence of getting PS Vita, so this has given me some food for thought.

    As far as mega man being reborn I’d be happy to let it die, I like fresh IPs and I hate when a series is basically milked to death. To many franchises don’t seem to know when to end.

    I’m pretty damn geeked for deep down

    And I would shit myself for a phantasy star 2.

    Other thoughts in general, website is great, podcast are enjoyable but you guys have some awkward differences in your mic volumes. Also the mobile site never seems to work. I for the desktop site on my phone and it works better.
