Episode 54 – Patience

Tumbleweeds. We do our best this week to find things to get upset about, other than the fact that shipping dates for cool things are still ages away and Cyberpunk isn’t out yet. Don’t worry, we love whinging about gaming, so expect a fair amount of that this week on the EBP.

Topics include; Rogue Company and how to/not to create a mashup game, whether you can keep a single game running indefinitely, esports viewerships, question if esports are even sports, Oculus Quest 2 account login dramas, and NBA2k unskippable ads.

But seriously, where are the 3080s already?!

Inspired by coincidentally recording on Budget Night and the fact that upgrade season is upon us and many others, we discuss various strategies for ensuring you get the best value when upgrading your PC or even TV for your gaming experience.

There were also Squadrons warring in the stars, so we chatted about that as the main gaming highlight for the week. Finally we Crash our way through news and chat about Geese in a Warzone that’s at least a third Wasteland.
