    Welcome back to Friends Per Second! This we're joined by industry luminary Geoff Keighley, who tells us all about his little known start in the industry, his split from E3 and his upcoming plans for Gamescom and beyond. We also take a look at the harassment and threats that Bungie staff are currently experience and ask: what is the real, bottom line benefit of videogame 'communities?'. We have a quick chat about the biggest releases of the last fortnight including Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and Cult of the Lamb, and we finish with our first ever QnA session. Enjoy!

    Shoot us an email! We'd love to answer your questions. Hit up contact@friendspersecond.com. Make em weird but not *too* weird. You know what I'm talking about.

    Let's meet our hosts:

    - Jake Baldino (aka the Before You Buy Guy) is pretty much the most watched reviewer on YouTube across both Gameranx and his personal channel (https://www.youtube.com/c/JakeBaldino). If you're obsessed with Delorians, The Mummy and Pizza you can discuss that stuff with him directly over on Twitter:  @JakeBaldino

    - Lucy James is a Senior Producer at Gamespot and a Creative Producer at Giant Bomb. She's actually, like, experienced and credentialed and has real life skills and stuff, while the rest of the gang would be funemployed if the YT algorithm didn't kiss them for random, inexplicable reasons. Oh, and she streams, too: https://www.twitch.tv/lucyjamesgames

    - Jirard (aka The Completionist: https://www.youtube.com/c/ThatOneVideoGamer) has been doing YouTube since before Noah wore short pants. Over the course of more than a decade, Jirard has completed HUNDREDS of games to bring you the quality of review that almost no other reviewer dare bring you, getting the 100% completion trophy for every title before putting pen to paper. Jirard has a let's play channel (https://www.youtube.com/c/superbeardbros). He's a host on the newly re-launched X-Play (https://www.youtube.com/c/xplay) and in his spare time he fires off the occasional hot-take over on Twitter: @TheCompletionist

    - Skill Up used to work at McDonalds but he got fired for skimming too many chicken nuggets. He says he regrets it since he's never had a better job since then.

    Ep 4: Are we winning the battle against NFTs?

    Welcome back to Friends Per Second! This week Jirard is away so Tam has generously stepped in to fill the essential role of 'dude with a beard on a podcast'. We take a good look at the current state of Ubi and ask: 'can it be saved?'. We celebrate that Mojang NFT dunk but wonder if we're really winning The Great NFT War, and we lament that we (probably) aren't getting that KOTOR remake after all. 

    Shoot us an email! We'd love to answer your questions. Hit up contact@friendspersecond.com. Make em weird but not *too* weird. You know what I'm talking about.

    00:01:49 - Ubisoft is having a rough one
    00:38:57 - Minecraft takes a stance on NFTs
    01:01:13 - Knights of the Old Republic remake in trouble

    - Tamoor Hussain is the Managing Editor of Gamespot, Creative Director at Giant Bomb and regular host on Kinda Funny. He wears a head-band to feel closer to his childhood hero, Solid Snake, and he always wears a glove on his right hand because...actually nm, I've said too much. You can watch him annoy people on twitter by following him at @tamoorh

    - Skill Up used to work at McDonalds but he got fired for skimming too many chicken nuggets. He says he regrets it since he's never had a better job since then.

    Ep 2: Diablo Immortal + Resident Evil feat. The Sphere Hunter

    Ep 2: Diablo Immortal + Resident Evil feat. The Sphere Hunter

    Welcome to Episode 2 of the Friends Per Second Podcast! This week we do a deep dive on Diablo Immortal and ask: 'what do you even say to this?'. We take a look at a the very (very) early announcement of Fallout 5, the recent Steam Next Fest and the hot-off-the-presses 3rd Party Nintendo Direct. Oh, and we played some videogames as well - stuff like Outriders Worldslayer, Neon White, The Quarry and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
