Gaming Guru Podcast S3E5 - The real gaming warzone
Much has been said about the console wars between Sony and Microsoft but is the real war in gaming actually happening on the side of digital distribution. For the longest time Steam has been the unopposed monopoly of digital gaming distribution, but since players like Epic, Blizzard, Electronic Arts, Sony and Microsoft joining the fray, who is the real winner? Is it us, the consumers, the game developers or no one at all?
This week, Gareth and Tim take a look at these questions to find out.
Gaming Guru Podcast S3E4 - Can you trust game reviews anymore?
In a world where EVERYONE has an opinion do game reviews even matter anymore?

This week, Gareth and Tim take a look at these questions to find out what place game reviews still have (if any).
