Big Red Barrel is a family of volunteers united by our passion for gaming, other fabulously geeky pursuits and our appetite for sharing our independent opinions via our podcasts and the BRB blog. We like to have fun with what we do, but we are serious when need be and aspire to be as professional as possible in the presentation of our content.
