The NicheCast is Niche Gamer’s weekly podcast where we talk up the latest gaming news and events, as well as unique games, niche games, 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.

Topic of the Week
- E3 2021 – Can the event survive and thrive despite being online only? Will there still be big reveals like in years past, or have all the big dogs split off to host their own events like Nintendo, Bethesda, and more? We talk about E3 2021, our predictions, and how the show might still have a chance at the greatness it had in prior years.
