#013: Getting the advantage
In this episode I talk about "getting the advantage". This is an important idea in the competitive arenas where we often find ourselves, in game and out. So how do we figure it out? What questions do we need to ask? What are the fundamental ideas? In this brief episode, I hope to give some additional perspectives in how you can think better to try and improve your game.
#012: Valorant - First Thoughts
In this podcast I talk about Valorant! I had an opportunity to play the beta and I wanted to give you guys some of my initial thoughts. They are all positive. This game is polished, fun, and a high skill ceiling. I don't think there's a world where this game isn't very successful; Riot has done so much right with this, I hope it sends a message to other developers looking to get into the FPS esports space!
