Sorry

You guys have always been my favorite since the FF days but without Nate the show feels like it lost its soul. The idea was always to go mainstream with it and Norris and Robbie have come into their own but I stopped listening without Nate which even surprised me cuz I thought I hated him haha. I won’t hear your reply to this cuz I’m unfollowing but best of luck to you guys.

Thanks for getting my love for video games back

Squidly back with another.., you all have literally got me back to loving video games. I’ve also started to pay attention to Overwatch league more and esports in general. I’m a huge traditional sports fan from the LOU! but esports Just has a different vibe to it! I’m not sure if St. Louis has any esports teams but if they do I’d love to find them and support them! Once again thank you all for keeping my job fun and for making games fun again!!

P.S. Norris you still my dawg

Great show about games and stuff

All these improvements have been great across their shows. Staff changes, format changes, I feel everything has been improved. Not a fan of when they throw in clips from their other shows in but not worth losing a star on. Keep up the great work!
