    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. 

    - Jirard (aka The Completionist: https://www.youtube.com/c/ThatOneVide...) 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 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.

Irvin Kid ,

Great Group of People with Well Rounded Opinions

I came to this podcast as a fan of SkillUp’s youtube channel and have loved spending time with all these creators. There’s a great mix of personalities, palpable chemistry and real insight into the gaming industry and everything around it.

They are never afraid to crack jokes or tangent at times but know where to draw the line and don’t degrade their product to boost an entertainment factor, relying instead on their personalities, knowledge and passion for games to carry the show.

New podcasts always need a growing period to understand what works and what doesn’t and despite starting very strong off the bat, they have taken feedback and made alterations which continue to improve the overall product and encourage an atmosphere of community.

Great work Ralph, Lucy, Jake and Jirard - keep up the good work, tie your shoes and go to bed!

Basically the Justice league of gaming

If you love just listening to people who love this community and the joy gaming brings, FPS is for you. The hosts are incredibly knowledgeable and fun and bring so much joy to video game talk. reviewers/influencers.

Corvus Anduril ,

Best Video Game News Podcast

What can I say, my favorite video game youtubers came together to make a podcast. One of my favorite things is they dont upload too often. Every two weeks is perfect. Keep up the good work.
