episode 8 - eSports w/ Special guest!

In this episode of PPG we have another special guest (Isaac aka Peggins) with us! We talk about eSports and the struggles of that competitive arena, but mostly the discussion is around League of Legends (NA LCS). Activision is once again brought up for, what seems to be, their toxic work culture that they've created and the mass layoffs that they are doing. We get the top 5 games from Isaac, since we require that to be part of the show and we also talk a little bit about Houdini now that we've got back her blood work and she continues her anxiety medication.

Disclaimer: There were some troubles with Peg's microphone during the recording of this session.
