Thanks for visiting the home of GameDistiller Productions on the web! Formerly Gameinsight Productions, we are proud to keep on providing the same great content as before, just now under a new name. This is where you will find the home of many different gaming related ventures and projects, syndicated on and

The Com-cast is a podcast that runs from 60-90 minutes. Alex and Simon (with the occasional guest) sit down and analyze some of the most substantial, though not necessarily the latest, trends and issues that involve or affect the gaming world at large in a casual and conversational way.


Weekend Short-Takes

The Weekend Short-Takes are a weekly news wrap-up, covering 5-7 of the most interesting or eventful news stories of the past week, but is not merely a laundry list report. Instead, a panel of gaming enthusiasts take an in-depth look at them, carefully sorting through the potential ramifications on the industry and gamers alike in a short and digestible manner.

Synoptic Sitreps are Sparknotes for some of the biggest game franchises, so whether you are looking at jumping into a new series, or have played some of the games and don't understand what's going on, these will help you navigate your way through the complex narratives. There is no set schedule on which they are released, but a new Sitrep or a major revision to an existing one are usually released every 10 Com-casts or so.

Mindshare is a more traditional editorial type of content. Why? Because the topics covered don’t quite fit into a podcast topic, which predominantly consider larger trends in the industry as a whole, and they aren’t part of the Weekend Short-Takes, since it isn’t news either. Thus, once a month we will take a question or a major issue in the industry and try to come up with new responses to it or a careful exposition of the issue at hand to prompt a discussion about it.

We are continually working on new ideas about how to sort out the rapidly growing and complicating beast that is the gaming industry, and figuring out ways to piece it together meaningfully.

We hope you enjoy our work and would ask that however you feel you leave a comment below the post or contact us at our Contact page. Thanks for checking us out!
