Ep 39: A Brief History of Epic Games

Apologies for the delayed episode! This week, we look at a topic that we've wanted to talk about for a while - the development of the company that created Fortnite, Epic Games! We talk about the other projects and technologies that have come out of the nearly 30 year run of Epic Games as a company, whether they were developed recently or when the company was a one man start-up out of Tim Sweeney's parents' home in Maryland.

Ep 32: Skirmish, Slowdown, and Splodes

This week we start a transition from "just build lol" to the more updated and correct "lol..should I actually build?" We take a look at the number of weapons and items that seem focused building destruction and discuss whether there are starting to be too many overlaps in usage as well as too few mats to make it all worthwhile. We also take a look at how entertaining and effective the Kingpin ruleset has been for Summer Skirmish weeks 5 and 6 (our answer is basically "very")! Follow the show...
