Episode 3 - fortnite being sued?

In this episode we talk a bit more about cats than we have in the past episodes. Patrick talks about his new kitten “Ekko”, and some of the challenges he is currently facing with him. CES has come and gone so we chat about some of the cool tech that was released at the show this year. Moving into the gaming discussion it is ruled by Fortnite and the lawsuits popping up against them regarding their in-game dances. We also talk about more news from Activision and the changes happening within that company. We also get into a discuss about Early Access and how we feel about it in the gaming industry. Is it just a money grab?
