The Backlog Busters eschews the standard gaming podcast template by skipping the news and instead just tackling the “whatcha been playing” part. The show’s regular episodes are a roundtable of hosts discussing the games that they are currently playing—and it’s not always the newest releases. In between, shorter episodes focus on a singular game or other gaming-related side topics/quizzes.
Recently the show has run and wrapped up a draft for which gaming console should be the next mini-console, with some surprising results. The episode embedded below will give you a good idea of the format—talk about Octopath Traveler (above), Sea of Thieves, Last of Us Part II, and Mega Man X, among others.
