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 you love them as well. We only cover these games on our regular feed, and we only cover them on our podcast, too.

Niche News of the Week

We didn’t do a traditional list this week – we mostly focused on the biggest news from this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo. A normal Niche News will return next week!

Topic of the Week

Narrative in gaming – it constantly changes, evolves, and is (hopefully) improved upon. However, there are the usual detractors within the industry that continue to insist gaming needs to “grow up” to be accepted as art. We debate this, including the inane arguments over so-called misogynistic games, and more.
