Four nerds. Four microphones. Zero clue what we're talking about.

    Are we winning the battle against NFTs?

    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.

    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

    - 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.

Great Chill Show!

Listened to the Last of Us Part 1 price discussion on my drive from NJ to MA today and downloaded Apple Podcasts just to drop a review (I listen on Spotify). This is a fun show of a few great gaming personalities shooting the breeze with some great perspectives on games. Excellent bants as they say!
