Hey guys!

Since this month is our nine year anniversary, we wanted to take a second and thank each and every one of you for all of the support that you’ve given us!

When we started this group in 2008, we never anticipated what it would grow into, and all of our success is because of you.

Thanks for the past nine years, and we can’t wait to see what the next nine have in store! We’ll see you July 14 for our Final Fantasy Marathon for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital!

TSG’s Second Annual Game of the Year Podcast!

Hey guys!

2016 was a really great year for video games if you ask us, and we had a great time discussing it as a group with our Second Annual Game of the Year Podcast!

It ran nearly three hours (so be prepared), but we gave our picks for Best Debut, Best Looking Game, Best Music, Best Multiplayer, Best Handheld, Best Story, and, of course, Game of the Year.

Take a listen, and let us know what you think of our picks and how yours compare! You can always tweet us your thoughts on Twitter via @TheSpeedGamers, too!

We’re working to increase our content across the board in 2017, and we hope this podcast is a good way to start! We’ll also have information about our next marathon very soon, so stay tuned!
