Challenge Mode #3: Perceptions of Gaming

Welcome to episode three of Challenge Mode!  It’s the show where we revisit video games, the culture surrounding them, and the people who play and make them!

This week we talk about gaming culturally and what different groups of people think about gaming! New episodes of Challenge Mode will go up every two weeks right here in the Gamer Heroes podcast feed, so keep it here for more Challenge Mode!  Enjoy, friends!

Catch our KCCC (Kansas City Comic Con) 2017 live panel! We talk with the audience about guilty pleasure video games including some classics from the N64 era, DOS PC gaming, and maybe a few arcade additions!

This episode was recorded live in front of a panel audience, so audio quality might not be as good as usually but we hope you enjoy the conversation! Next week we’ll be back with thoughts on Doom for Nintendo Switch and Narcosis on Xbox One!
