Have You Met My Friend Ted?

Our friend Ted drops by to talk about the history of martinis, what to look for at a Porta Potty in the woods, and the best way to combine Peeps, cola, and obstacle courses. We discuss game development here and there where it comes up.

You have to meet Ted to understand him. He’s the kind of teammate who divides his time between yelling at the other team, yelling at you, and then yelling at himself. In a fun way. Ted contributes to the OHCPlay channel on YouTube which we’ve discussed before, but also has a personal account, TrojanManSCP, full of just as many assorted gems as you might suspect from our chat in this episode. He’s an authority on all matters Overwatch and he can drill down pretty deep into anything that has his attention.

Anyway, here’s Ted taking the bug salt shotgun to the face:

New Video: Overwatch – Junkrat on D

Overwatch-mania continues. The game is starting to take the OHC crowd by storm, so I finally have friends to play with–going too long without that achievement for playing ONE game as part of any group was just getting sad.

This Guy Left a Competitive Overwatch Match with Good Reason

Overwatch’s competitive play has been live for a few days now, and most players are familiar with the ups and downs of getting ranked and battling your way to the top.

Perhaps the most frustrating difference, though, is the one that can shut down a match before it ever truly begins.
