Homebrew Game Club Podcast

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I just launched a podcast focused on homebrew games. We're using a "game club" format where two friends and I pick one game to play for each episode, then get together after a month to talk about it. The first episode is more of an introductory discussion among the three of us about our histories with games and what we each bring to the table. I would like to think we represent three somewhat different perspectives, with each of us shaped by our professional experiences around the game, tech, and film/video industries.

You can listen to a short (45 second) promo clip on our main podcast feed here, as well as our "episode zero" introductory show. Our angle is sort of "smart commentary by way of stupid humor," which... should be obvious from the trailer. 

For links to Discord and other social media, check out https://linktr.ee/homebrewgameclub.

I'll be adding new episodes to the VGS Blog section as they post. Feel free to use this thread for general comments. We are just getting off the ground and are always looking for ways to improve, so constructive suggestions or other feedback are greatly appreciated!

I want to hear more from the Super Mario Bros. 2 cart! Why did you censor it??!?!

We had someone ask this on Discord also. I know we dropped the explicit tag but I didn't realize there was an audience for this kind of filthy content. 

If I've got a recording set up where Bart and Conor can't make it I might bring back SMB2 and Lizard cartridge for a three-way conversation... Not sure I'd be able to get a word in edgewise though as those are gonna be some extremely hot takes

Oh, and we're giving away a free digital copy of the excellent Witch n' Wiz for NES, courtesy of Matt Hughson! Just leave us a review on iTunes to enter, and we'll announce the winner during our upcoming Deadeus episode (due January 2022).

My stars & review are on the French iTunes... not sure if you will see it.

Our recap of the 2022 Midwest Gaming Classic is now live! Tune in to hear two tired guys talk about crazy game prices, chilling out in the Video Game Sage homebrew room, and eating a lot of quality pub food:
