The Gaming Outsider

The Gaming Outsider Podcast is a show dedicated to video gaming of all kinds with a focus on the community. Here at The GO, we don't subscribe to just one platform, and we realize that we don't have the ability to play every game that's out there. Our goal is to discuss ours and our listener's perspectives on current and former games that we have played while keeping a positive environment.

It's a short and sweet episode today as Josh and Scott discuss (spoiler-free) a small title called "Her Story", a game that's more of an interactive movie than anything else.  Both of us were surprised and intrigued by this title, and truly hope that some listeners will give this game a chance.
