Episode #1. Tuesday, May 21st, 2014. OK, first and last show that I do falling asleep at the wheel, but regardless: Welcome!!! To the first of what we hope will be a long journey together through the Xbox Universe. Join myself, Gamers Sphere Senior Xbox Editor, Agasicles Stamas and my courageous companion, fellow GS Xbox Editor, Brad Austin, as we try to bring you extended commentary on Gamers Sphere’s Xbox coverage. We’re firmly on the road leading up the E3, and Microsoft’s familiar Rolling Thunder PR campaign is well underway, with trickling tidbits of rumors and name-drops of what we can expect at the show. Give a listen to Brad and my commentary on various Xbox topics, get to know us a little better as Xbox gamers, and please, please, share a little bit about yourselves in the comments. Also, please get in touch with myself and GS General News Editor Rachel Leigh if you want to get in on our Game with the Gamers Sphere Editors night, kicking off on the Xbox One on June 1st. Here’s the rundown on this episode:

Agasicles has been, and continues to be, all over the map, physically literally, and figuratively. When he is not changing diapers or chasing the dog, he tries to squeeze in some gaming, and even tries to write about it from time to time. He is also into movies, comics, and is trying to perfect the art of binge-streaming television seasons via various streaming services.
