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.

Join Scott and Zach who welcome two special guests, Kristina Flores and Jimmy Ninetoes, to discuss Doki Doki Literature Club. This strange, trojan horse of a horror game looks innocent at first glance, but becomes something much more sinister later into the game. The foursome explore the themes of the game, some of the surprises and the pros and cons of such a unique experience. This episode is full of spoilers so we recommend playing through the game first before listening.

Thanks and we hope you enjoy the conversation!
