Welcome to "Live Gaming Gathering"


Welcome to "Live Gaming Gathering" Podcast, where a bunch of friends from different parts of the world gather together to discuss anything that they find interesting in gaming industry and their personal lives.

A passion project created by Tom Belous (aka TheLankySoldier)

in hopes of creating a platform where various individuals

could come in and discuss anything they wish to talk about

regarding video games with honesty and ease.

What to expect from us while listening ?

Video games are more than some entertainment medium. It's art, storytelling, gameplay moments with your friends, it can be anything you want it to be.

But at the same time, it's multibillion business, which can be brutal sometimes. 

We want to educate ourselves, including our listeners. We want to discuss

all different perspectives and learn something as we go, while having fun.

Because after all, it's just video games, right ?
