I never get tired of listening to Kirk, Maddy and Jason talk about video games. Their shows are timeless and ever relevant. Their chemistry is amazing. Nothing compares, really!

Love hearing really thoughtful, unique, and intelligent perspectives on video games as both an industry, art form, and entertainment platform. Keep it up!

The hosts are knowledgable and bring different perspectives as they talk about gaming weekly. Must listen!

Just nice to hear people talking about games!

You speak out here about Black Lives Matter but your silence is loud when it comes to the Palestinian people. I shouldn't be surprised by the hypocrisy of it all. I'm actually surprised by the couple of podcasts that actually spoke out about BLM and still talked about what's happening...Read full review »

Difficult to provide this feedback without it seemingly sounding mean, but I’m just going to be direct about it. Jason needs to talk less, not because we don’t want to hear him talk, but sometimes it feels like he overpowers Maddy and Kirk through rambling attrition. It also feels like Jason is...Read full review »

This show is a true gem in the max fun crown, I can’t wait to see how it grows!

Start listening to the last’s of us episode and it sound some entertaining until Maddy refers to one of the characters as Latin X, is either Latina or Latino if you prefer use Latin person, as a Latin I found it very offensive.

I’m really glad their partnership with Maximum Fun is working out for them, but it bums me out that I’m missing Triple Click shows because I can’t justify paying $5 monthly for a bunch of podcasts I’m not interested in. I’d happily support triple click alone on patreon for $1-3/mo. A $2...Read full review »

I used to have some patience for their simple woke political crap, but discussions now have now proceeded to get so bad that you can’t ignore the hateful wokeness anymore. It’s a shame really. They used to be my favorite gaming podcast.

At first listen, I thought this show had been around for years. The quality, camaraderie, and breadth of scope just goes to show what happens when truly smart, informed, and funny people talk about the things they love. Here’s to 10 more years! 🍻

So glad I found this podcast! Kirk, Maddy and Jasondoes such a good job covering a variety of topics with their different backgrounds. This show is so entertaining and it feels like I'm sitting around talking about video games with friends.I would recommend this show to anyone!Read full review »

Jason, Maddy and Kirk are my favorite voices in gaming journalism and criticism. They are knowledgeable, thoughtful, experienced and most importantly opinionated. The have great takes and offer full picture views of games and how they were made and who made them. If you play games and think...Read full review »

I loved Kotaku Splitscreen. I Love Max Fun. The combination? Not so much. This new format is slightly cramped and constrained, whereas previously the conversation flow between Maddy, Kirk and Jason was a delight. ‘Triple Play’, ‘What’s the Deal?’ and ‘One More Thing’. Still not totally sure yet....Read full review »

It’s rare to find a video game podcast with great hosts and this is definitely one of them! You should check it out!
An anxious guy via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/18/21
Such a chill yet well informed podcast about videogames. If you’re looking for a good time with such pleasant and open minded people who share their thoughts, feelings and deep knowledge of the industry and broader modern subjects, you’re in the right place. One of the first podcasts I started...Read full review »
Lol - 2 via Apple Podcasts · France · 02/08/21
Love this show. The hosts are varied and come at the topic of video games from different perspectives and backgrounds. They also discuss movies, books, and tv shows they’re into and I’ve gotten some great recommendations from the three of them. Give it a try!
MattyTiz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/06/21
For those of you who read the title and had no idea what I was referring to or rolled your eyes, I’d encourage you to bear with me as this is indicative of a major problem that is born out in other reviews, though I’d argue this is the most damaging example of the problem. First off, the gaming...Read full review »
FroColin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/02/21
I really like this show sometimes and like all the hosts individually—but I feel like a bulk of the conversation feels weirdly argumentative. It’s hard to explain, but there are all these little digressions and contradictions that break up the flow of conversation and make me feel super awkward...Read full review »

Three journalists and friends chatting video games, the industry, and other related new stories. They take it all really seriously (while being very friendly and charming) and have pointed me to some excellent titles I had never heard of. If you only listen to one video game podcast, this is the...Read full review »

Thoughtful and considered takes on games, placing them in context of gaming history, the industry, and pop culture. Funny and charming hosts whos years of experience with games and journalism shine through. Listen if you want specific and nuanced thoughts on the games you love.
Taylor9080 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/12/21
Amazing podcast. They go a bit deeper into the industry than other podcasts, and it’s a great way to learn .
Darcadia via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/11/21
The hosts are great and have different tastes that help make the podcast fun because they approach games from different angles. They give great recommendations for new games too. I miss more games-related news discussions from the Kotaku days. It’s nice they pick a topic and run with it, but the...Read full review »

Strong commentary by hosts that are both immersed in the industry and passionate about playing all the games - including the latest/greatest, GOAT, inde-favorites, and smaller, fan-supported.
KGTurnak via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/02/21
I don't always sign in to rate a podcast, but when I do it is for one that I love. (or hate, that is rare too) Triple click is very informative and fun to listen to.Read full review »

I loved the old Splitscreen podcast, and when they first started Triple Click I did as well, and Kirk and Maddie are great. But. Jason’s abuse of those who disagree with him, especially on Twitter has gone on too long. He has actively gone after female and minority personalities and bashed them...Read full review »

Great podcast! Manages to be both charming, funny and insightful.
RedPepperBanjo via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 12/11/20
I’m not on this Jason hate-train, but I do feel that since this show changed from being SplitScreen it lost some of the magic. Maybe because it’s more structured than before. It just feels so commercial now. It used to be so loose and informal, but now it sounds like all those other...Read full review »
Mr. Eric Anderson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/08/20
The three people that used to host the Kotaku podcast have gone indie - and the results are mixed. I can admire the guts of trying to distinguish themselves from any other gaming podcast out there. However, now they have gone too far in that direction, in my opinion. You come, or I at least...Read full review »

I listen to quite a number of gaming podcasts, but this is the only one I look forward to every week and have been listening religiously since the Splitscreen days. It may actually be my favorite podcast period. Maddy, Jason, and Kirk have intelligent, well informed discussions with an easy...Read full review »
hnbanana via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/12/20
I like the show but could do with a little less Jason who seems to hate that people can’t afford next gen stuff, doesn’t breathe and talks like a living run on sentence.
AceFurry83 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/12/20
Really enjoy 3 veteran journalists taking through games etc, they have a great camaraderie and insight. The only thing that drags the show down however is that they have a tendency to spoil things - which is annoying considering they have specific episodes to spoil things but still manage to do...Read full review »
Chumpp via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/27/20
People who think Jason is a problem... are the problem. This melody of people is great. I love the attitude, the chemistry is fantastic, and feels real. This is the parasocial relationship you need.
Phox_Phire via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/16/20
I would say my gaming preferences most align with Jason’s, though I respect the opinion of both Maddy and Kirk as well. It’s clear all three hosts are veteran gamers and are capable of having intelligent, thought-provoking discussions about all types of games. All three of them are awesome and I...Read full review »

Video games, para-video game news, and awesome “one more things”. Way more focused than split screen and it is appreciated. Keep it up!
thispod? via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/15/20
I am done listening. Love Maddy on this podcast and Kirk is good also, but cannot listen because of Jason. Unintelligent muttering. Wish Maddy and Kirk would just do the podcast as a duo as they are very interesting and eloquent.
fulltilted via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/13/20
It’s a shame that Jason has decided to really up the ante when it comes to his “greater than thou” games journalism crusade. For a while he was tolerable for me, especially during the early Splitscreen days. After getting his job at Bloomberg, Jason has really grown into a sarcastic Twitter...Read full review »

Venture Industry via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/09/20
I listened to and enjoyed this podcast since it launched. It was refreshing to have a gaming podcast that wasn’t just a group of enthusiasts talking about the same news of the week that every other popular gaming podcast was covering. But recently Jason has made a nasty habit of somewhat...Read full review »
Jshaffe93 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/09/20
Loved this podcast but unsubscribing due to Jason thinking it's ok to attack a black influencer because they disagreed on something and couldn't even say it to him directly. Hope nothing but the best for Kirk and Maddy.Read full review »
Diseasedgecko via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/05/20
Eh
The podcast is fine. The hosts are great, the discussions are fun. The problem I have with it is that they don’t talk about a lot of different genres. It seems that they focus on RPGs and stuff like that. I’ve stayed subscribed just in hope that it will get broader, but at this point I am done.

patracles via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/24/20
Not sure that this is a gaming podcast or a venue for the anti-business, anti-developer views of the hosts. It’s a combination of the two really where every view, game discussion and topic is filtered through a lens for how well it applies to progressive orthodoxy. Cancel culture, faux outrage,...Read full review »

I don’t know what about Triple Click but it brings back to when I was more carefree and young. I often fall asleep when listening to Triple Click because I feel so relaxed.
!bazinga via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/05/20
Triple Click and The Besties are definitely my favorite video game podcasts.
vincentvangogurt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/27/20
When the hosts are focused on the games itself, the show is amazing. When Maddie and Jason go on highly political/social justice far left opinionated rants that have nothing to go with gaming, it gets hard to listen to. It’s not that I don’t enjoy hearing viewpoints from a perspective other...Read full review »
