episode 6 - toxicity in gaming

In this episode our big topic is toxicity in gaming and why people feel a need to be so nasty to each other, especially in competitive games. We also talk about Diablo 4, Kingdom Hearts 3, Metro Exodus and their exclusive deal with the Epic Game Store. Little bit of time is spent talking about the potential of a new (cheaper) Nintendo switch coming up potentially by the end of 2019. 

I can feel the toxicity slowing coursing through my veins now.
