Jason and Kirk have great chemistry between each other, having good constructive debates and not just agreeing with each other’s opinions. You can tell that they love video games but hate scoring them! Keep up the excellent work guys!

After trying podcasts as an alternative to playing music for 4-5hours a day, the first podcast I tried was Splitscreen, and having tried many others for the last few days, this is by far the best. Other video game podcasts also reference getting their new from Kotaku. Keep up the good work guys!!!! Superb

Great stuff.

I love the podcast for the news that they bring. But what motivated me to write a review is that both podcasters have a great view of the world. Kirk and Jason are not shy about dealing with sensitive topics like alt right statements in the gaming world for example.
Keep it up guys, thanks for sharing gaming news in an inclusive way :)

Awesome!

I consume an inordinate amount of media, but this is the one I look forward to every week.
Jason and Kirk have great chemistry, lively debates and personalities that you can’t help but make you smile to yourself (“that was such a Kirk thing to say”). Plus Jason wrote a book! Which he mentions... occasionally...
Keep up the good work guys

One of the best

This great podcast would get five stars if they let Kirk play that sax a little longer on the intro before Kirk talks.

I remember reading a quote from Pen Ward, the guy who made Adventure time where he said when feeling stressed, he likes to go down to a trading card shop and listen to nerds argue about dungeons and dragons because it relaxes him.
That's what this podcast feels like to me, and it's great to put a voice to the words of my two favourite games writers. Thanks guys :)

Love the podcast guys!

Really good games podcast - I could do with a little less Destiny and a little more JRPG talk myself, but that's personal preference! Jason and Kirk talk about some really interesting things and often have unique perspectives on issues discussed on other podcasts. I recommend you take a listen!

Informative, insightful and playful. This podcast makes me feel like I'm in on the act that is the video game industry. Quality content and worth going back to listen from the start.

Came across Splitscreen last month, and has quickly become a favourite to listen to. Kirk Hamilton is a writer I've respected for years, and Jason Schreier is my No. 1 for news scoops and JRPG hotness. Great work guys!

Brilliant!!!

Been following kotaku for ages. The podcast matches the brilliant game coverage and writing on the website. One thing, and chance you could get Keza on one day?
BTW you heard of trails in the sky? Cheers guys!

Very Enjoyable

Very much enjoyed Patricia's opinions in the Fallout episode. Jason's uneducated input with regard to technical issues can get a little frustrating, but enjoyable despite that.

Suprised they haven't done this before!

Guys, love the content and finally putting a voice to a name. Kotaku is one of my favorite go-to sites for news and helps me craft my articles and blogs. So to finally have an entertaining and yet informative view from behind the scenes and more from Jason and team is great. Keep it up guys as i'll keep listening :)

Great

Loving the content guys :). The Destiny episode was exceptionally good. Great to hear some insider scoop from Luke Smith. I'd say he's redeemed himself lol. I always read Kotaku UK, but working long hours this is the best way of getting some content, in a work-friendly manner. Cheers
