Welcome to What’s Good Games, a new show for the nerd-inclined. This particular Voltron is comprised of Andrea Rene (host/producer extraordinaire, seen on Yahoo Esports, IGN, GameStop TV, and more), Alexa Ray Corriea (you’ve seen her writing on Polygon/Gamespot), Brittney Brombacher (the kick-ass creator of BlondeNerd.com) and Kristine Steimer (she’s worked at a lot of places like IGN and PlayStation). We’ve been friends for years and have often discussed how there weren’t many satisfactory ways to get our voices out there, together. That is, until recently, when the stars aligned. We realized that now is the perfect time to join forces and spin up our very own project.
