    I played a LOT of Knights of Pen and Paper +1 Edition – came close to finishing it but lost my save and didn’t want to essentially replay the game.

    Great show as always, I am a super casual overwatch player but it is good to know about the way they taste players. I am super sad we do not get to see the single player DLC for mass effect andromeda, it was hinted that there would be another ark, which I think would be the quarians ark, really don’t care about the multiplayer element. 

    I am interested in watching Okja and I can’t wait to not to see transformers, and I would defo like to see more shows in the west end. 

  3. How was the episode title now “Alex: Okay okay, I have my boner now.” ?!

    Lost saves are the WORST.

    I think there is a hashtag going on Twitter #SaveTheQuarians from the fans. Not sure if that will ever lead to anything, but there is definitely an interest from people to get a single-player DLC.

    Cracking episode!

    Diarmuid’s part about toxic players reminded me of a podcast from one of the League of Legends bods on how they’re are dealing with the issue, without immediately using the ban hammer. I couldn’t find the podacst itself, but I did find the article it came from:

    Also, Overwatch: IS JUNKRAT COMPETITIVE NOW?!?
