The XboxEra PodcastJul 07, 2024



Episode 219 | "Nick was Neon Right”In a much quieter week in the gaming industry, the podcast crew return to talk through all of the latest in gaming news, in addition to the ups-and-downs of life itself in the XboxEra Podcast Episode 219!This week, Nick takes a break from his family holiday to indulge his over-inflated ego by not only naming the episode after himself, but to really lean into the fact he'd marry a picture of himself if he could. Sik and Jesse return alongside him to break down the latest in gaming, what we've been playing and to celebrate our wonderful XboxEra community all over again. Our next sub-a-thon is scheduled for July 26th, if you're interested in hanging out, fundraising and maybe some sweet giveaways! The episode is available via YouTube as normal, but if you're on Spotify, you can watch or listen - the choice is yours! It's in audio only on all other platforms.
