We're a video game podcast with hosts from all over the world. Started by Londoner Cliff Goldsmith in 2015, he quickly recruited VaderVanOdin from New Zealand to be his co-host, with Jeremy Greer (US) and Josh Crowe (UK) after that(also I'm here now! -Bwade). Each week we bring you a different line up of people, views, topics, and feedback from our listeners.

We're back with another action packed episode! This week, Josh and Vader are joined by debut guest, and podcast enthusiast, John Gamble. John is an absolute delight to talk to, and if you take away just one thing from this episode, it'll most certainly be that John LOVES fighting games, which is cool!

The podcast slingshot is primed and ready to fire another episode of Dark Insight at ya!
After the break last week we return for another show, where an exhausted Cliff returns and is joined by a knackered Josh and a groggy Vader (who'd only just got out of bed, like a champ) to discuss some vidya gaems.
There's a brief discussion regarding the travesty that was the Mighty No. 9 physical Kickstarter mix up, how the Switch appears to be out-doing everybody's expectations by selling a ridiculous amount of units, Josh details his trip to London Comic Con and Cliff was lucky enough to be given the first 2 episodes of the new Little Nightmares comic. There's also a quick bit of follow up regarding Jalaid and the, frankly, heart warming response to that. Thank you to each and every person who was involved, even to the most minute degree. Just a tiny amount of effort and make the world of difference.

The boss is back! Our man Cliff is here to host this episode, and is joined by Jeremy and Bryan. They sit down to talk about basically everything. We start off with some good ol' Kenny Chesney, then get into a lengthy conversation about our favorite beverages. Following that, we talk about some stuff we've been watching like that new Wonder Woman and that new Castlevania animated series. Cliff also spends some talking about his crazy journey to own a Switch! Eventually, we even talk about a game or two.

We're back with another Dark Insight, so pull up a chair in front of this lovely fire, grab yourself a biscuit, maybe give the lovely dog a pat on the head to reassure it that it's in good company...and relax!
This week, Josh and Vader are joined by the fantastic Matt from Monster Dear Monster! Together, the 3 of them discuss the weather, and how an 800 watt microwave is enough to shrivel the U.K. to a blubbering mess, then it's onto the news! A smattering of topics are talked about, including but not limited to the new Castlevania Netflix series, some juicy deets on Nintendo's online service proposal, and how a honeymoon ruined somebody's gamer score. I know, imagine that, digital achievements being upset by a truly wonderful event! You just couldn't write it!

black wake, diablo 3, eternal, psvr, snes mini, zelda breath of the wild
Hello everyone! This week Bryan, Jeremy, and Vader try to sit down and have a nice old fashioned talk about video games, but the internet was not cooperative. You'll hear in the show that things get downright weird, with multiple realities overlapping and people disappearing for long periods of time. So bear with us, we did the best we could on this one, but when it comes to interdimensional podcast travel, there's only so much you can do. We did manage to talk about some video games, though, including: Jeremy's new PSVR, Odin finishing Zelda Breath of the Wild before any of us, and Bryan manages to find a roguelike card game.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! It's Superma...no wait, that's not quite right. It is, however, a new episode of Dark Insight! This week, hosts Josh and Bryan are joined by friend of the show and debut guest, Dave Cox, who hosts the Monster Dear Monster and Crouching Tiger Hidden Podcast shows, both of which are very much worth listening to!

Oh my lord this is the third Dark Insight this week! On this episode special guest Jala Prendes (from The Level!) joins Bryan and Jeremy to talk about some dang video games. No E3 chat, though, since we already did that. Instead we talk about the future of Hitman, Bryan's obsession with roguelikes, and Jeremy's progression through Nier Automata. Plus, TONS OF OTHER GAMES. It's like gaming Christmas over here. Check the links below for everything we chat about!

We're still talking about E3 y'all. This episode is a bunch of listener comments and questions, so many we couldn't fit them into the main episode. So enjoy this, make sure to check out the links below to follow everyone on Twitter, and have an amazing week. We love you, listener!

E3 2017 is over! Finally! After months of nothing but press conferences and trailers, we can finally relax and look at some stuff that isn't games. Just kidding, this episode is dedicated to E3. Jeremy, Bryan, and Vader sit down to talk about their favorite games of the show, the ridiculousness of Mario, and their least favorite things about the show. Check the links below for an idea of what you're getting yourself into, or to watch a trailer for whatever game we're talking about.

Listeners, its your friendly neighborhood Jeremy Greer here. I have no idea what is happening with this episode. While the audio quality is great and everyone seems to have a good rapport with one another, there's a strange man running the show! I'm pretty sure it's a wizard. Anyway, it's super early and I don't really feel like putting the normal amount of effort into the shownotes because I'm super hungover. THANKS, RICHARD

HELLO AND WELCOME TO DARK INSIGHT
WE HERE AT DARK INSIGHT TALK ABOUT SOME VIDEO GAMES

THUS THE CAPS
Episode | May 28th, 2017 | 2 hrs 36 mins
castlevania, dragon's dogma, far cry 5, magikarp, prey, red dead redemption 2, the surge
Standing at the shore, you look around, devastated. There's no gaming news on this island. No IGN, no polygon...god, there isn't even any Kotaku. Just you and your frankly depressing lack of insight into games. If you had known this was going to happen, you would have held onto that WSJ article about Nintendo's earnings while the ship was crashing into this godforsaken place....but wait. What's that? Over there, under the conch shell? Is that...my god, it's a podcast. Even better: it's a gaming podcast. It's episode mother%&*ing 60 of the Dark Insight podcast! Dang! Even better, it has three main hosts: Josh, the beardiest guy in gaming. Vader, the nicest guy in gaming. Bryan. Wait? Who's Bryan? Forget that, though, your favorite guest, Stephen, is back! You quickly remove the post it note from the back of the podcast to read the notes: holy *&$% this is going to be good. Your boix talk about all sorts of stuff this episode: Far Cry 5, Dragon's Dogma, Castlevania, The Surge...your eyes glaze over as you read through the topics, but focus again on the last bit: LISTENER FEEDBACK. "Stupid crashed ship," you think, "I could have responded to this if I wasn't on this stupid island." You sit down, nestle the podcast behind your ears so you can hear it clearly, and wait for the inevitable rescue boat to appear.
