Folks, it’s been a while. Our apologies, but we’re back and explain where we’ve been. Also, it’s the end of the year, so it’s time for our 2015 Game of the Year tournament! Who will win as games like The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, Bloodborne, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Undertale, Mortal Kombat X, Batman: Arkham Knight, Fallout 4, and many more go head to head? Well, you’ll have to wait until we release Part 2 of our year-end blowout for the ultimate winner, but in the meantime here’s Part 1 featuring the first round of our massive 16-game tournament!

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
