Hit The Pass - Press Row Podcast
Press Row Podcast - 2013 Christmas Spectacular

It’s Episode 64 of the Press Row Podcast, the second annual celebration of everything we love about sports video games with friends of the show! For the second straight year, we’ve gathered a who’s who of industry folks, media types, pundits, and fans all to tell us about their top three sports games of the year. Everyone has plenty of great reasons why they chose their particular three favorite titles, which reminds us all that these games strike very different chords with different types of players. It’s an epic three and a half hour show, built for those long hours of holiday travel (or to tune out those relatives you’re forced to spend time with). No matter how you listen to the show, enjoy!

Press Row Podcast: 2013 Sports Game of the Year

This is the big one! The 63rd episode of the Press Row Podcast has the full crew on hand for the countdown to and ultimate reveal of the 2013 Sports Game of the Year. For starters, each panelist makes a case for two nominees. Up next, Rich counts down the top three games based upon the lists that each panelist submitted to reveal the winner. Lastly, each panelist reviews their personal list so you can see how the actual selections came together. It’s one of the most eagerly-anticipated episodes ever, and we hope you have as much fun listening to it as much as we did making it.
