As always, if you like what you hear, or even if you don’t, please do send us feedback via email at midwestgamenerds@gmail.com, or via Twitter @mgnpodcast. Feedback can be anything regarding games we’ve already covered, games you want us to cover, what you like about the show, what you don’t.  Anything really!  Just communicate with us!  Let us know you’re listening and fill us in on what sort of content you want us to bring to your ears!  


I’m starting something new, right here right now: the feedback question of the week.  These questions will be posted on the facebook page along side our episode post, as well as on twitter.  This week’s question is: If we made merchandise (ie tee shirts, hoodies, etc) would you listeners be interested in purchasing any of it?  The first listener to respond to the question will win a super special secret prize, (I say super special secret prize because I don’t actually know what it’s going to be yet…) so be sure to get that feedback in fast!  You may submit answers via email, twitter, or facebook.


Today we’re going over the 2016 game release schedule as it currently stands.  There are a lot of great games coming out this year, and instead of limiting it to the ones that we’re anticipating the most, I wanted to shed a little bit of light on some of the games that we could possibly end up covering.
