episode 15 - bioware and their anthem
April 10th, 2019
Another fantastic week of 2019 and we're back once again with some more PPG. This week we've got some gaming news, like you'd expect but more important Patrick delivers a sweet Raccoon story to us that you wouldn't expect. Listen in for that, if nothing else. We also discuss Borderlands 3 becoming a 6 month exclusive for Epic Game Store, all the steam review bombing and what steam has done to assist with it, and finally we're going to talk a bit about what we've been playing and the upcoming Mortal Kombat 11 game releasing later in April 2019.
Episode 14 - borderlands 3 and risk of rain
April 3rd, 2019
Another week and another episode of PPG. On this weeks Episode we'll follow up a little bit about Chris' cat, Houdini, and some of the personality changes he's experience while she's been on medication. Patrick and Chris talk a bit about what they've been playing recently, as well as discuss Borderlands 3 and Risk of Rain 2 which was announced at Pax East this past week. Chris' tells about his potential trip to Thailand in 2020 and Patrick goes on a hunt for a new couch so his cat can rip it apart as soon as it gets delivered.
Episode 13 - Cloud gaming
March 27th, 2019
This week on PPG we discuss the awesome announcement from Google at the GDC 2019, but Google isn't the only company getting involved into the Cloud Gaming arena so we'll discuss all the other projects going on including some beta testing that Chris got to do with GeForce Now. This could be one heck of a year for the gaming industry when I comes to the technology being used to make gaming more accessible to everyone.
We'll also discuss the upcoming titles for April and what we're looking forward to seeing out there. Actually more excited of re-releases than some of the new additions into the gaming world for that month. Epic will also be in the conversation a little bit as they enter the news for lifting localized private information from steam clients which they haven't asked users for! That's a no no.
We hope you enjoy this weeks episode
Episode 12 - esports and colleges
March 20th, 2019
In this episode of PPG we discover that Chris has a firm stance on student loans and he uses the podcast as a platform to rant a bit about his views on debt and how it relates to eSports. Granted, it does relate but who knew he was so opinionated? Right, we all did.
We give an update on our cats this week since it's been a few weeks on that topic and Patrick gives an updated on his Apex ban that he talked about last week. Our major topic this week is discussing scholarships, college esport clubs, and potential job opportunities in the esports industry.

Did we mention that Pat is banned from Apex Legends? Yeah, we'll cover that.
Our main topic is a discussion about some of our favorite Retro games over the years, we get a bit nostalgic with each other on this one and it's a nice wholesome topic since we have a topic that isn't so wholesome lingering in this episode.

Chris also ends up telling us a story about being in a mark-up store? Honestly, what even is this episode.
