Hi guys! So where did the idea for VGC come from? How did it come about?
VGC was formed by a group of experienced reporters looking to build an expert source and trusted voice for video game news. Since it launched in 2019, VGC has become the destination for industry professionals, aspiring creators and the most informed consumers, who want reliable, no-nonsense reporting on the games people care about and the people who make them.
And why enter the world of podcasting?
In a short space of time, Video Games Chronicle.com has already established itself as a key publication in the games media, regularly delivering exclusive scoops and no-nonsense reporting to an audience who trust our coverage. Expanding our reporting to the podcast space is well overdue, and we plan to deliver one of the most insightful video game shows on the market, with weekly exclusives and insight direct from the source.
What are you most excited for in the gaming space this year?
2023 is the year of the blockbuster video game as the pandemic hangover finally comes to an end. Headlined by industry leading RPG maker Bethesda’s Starfield and Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, each month is punctuated with multiple big-name titles. That’s not to mention PlayStation’s Spider-Man 2, and the launch of PlayStation VR2.
What can the listeners expect from the VGC Podcast?
VGC – A Video Games Podcast delivers exclusive news, experienced insight, and expert critique on the fast-moving world of video games, plus more than a few entertaining anecdotes on what it’s like to cover this exciting industry.
And lastly, what do you think VGC’s plans are for the future?
The VGC podcast is the start of our expansion beyond the written word. In 2023 we hope our readers will follow us on their favourite podcast app, and across social media, for the most up to-date coverage of the games industry.
