Patch 1.8 dropped with changes to Bastion, Mercy and Competitive Season 4. Dave and Brandon bore the crap out of everyone with their talk of competitive season four, and Dave claims to love us but still doesn't want to comp with us.
The 24th Overwatch hero is going to be Pumpkin Pete according to Dave. We discuss his abilities, theme song, and a little of his back story. We also talk about what the real 24th hero could potentially be following the Atlas News story on Efi Oladele. And seriously, none of us really enjoy playing Sombra. It's sad.
JB ruins a competitive game for Dave, Brandon is out sick, JB reverses his opinion about Capture the Rooster, and apparently CTR has been insanely popular. It all makes us feel like gigantic shoulder-boobs. (That's what shoulder-pads were for in the 80's, BTW.) We also talk all about what's coming on the PTR, Server Browser, and Custom Games. And Dave shows off his mad Lucio wall-riding skils. Big, meaty goodness!
The giveaway winners from our 20th episode are announced! Plus we talk about how Lunar New Year is the worst holiday so far! OK, that might be an overstatement, but the holiday is not being well received by the people we play with. Dave, JB, and Brandon talk about the holiday, their frustrations, bugs that were introduced, and fan-made heroes!
Our 20th episode! A giveaway and a new logo! The Lunar New Year event is going strong. We discuss our favorite skins, the new arcade mode: Capture the Rooster (Flag), the dev updates from the past two weeks, and try to help both Dave and JB with their performance issues.
New voice lines between Genji and Mercy? Is there a Valentine's event being planned? Dave shares with us some secrets of Symmetra's crazy crotch corners on Oasis. Lucio can skate backwards on the PTR! And we have some great community stuff this week including a fairy skin for Widowmaker!
We chill in Oasis, talk about how glad we are that Roadhog is getting some changes, discuss that JB was right about Terry Crews being Doomfist, and brainstorm hero abilities.

Brandon rejoins us this week as we discuss what we got for Christmas, how Symmetra changed a competitive game, and that you can tell when your opponents have their ult.

Very excited to announce Dave (Wildtree) to the show as the official 3rd host! Brandon is unable to join us this week due to being on holiday airport duty, but Dave and JB have fun talking about hydrants, Winter Wonderland, training in custom games, news from the dev update, and the latest Overwatch comic.
Winter Wonderland has hit the servers and it's awesome! The Symmetra changes are also live. Wildtree joins us again to talk about our impressions, what skins we've spent credits on, and Dave asks Umphy for a millenial perspective.
WWJD bracelets have nothing on us. The key to life? Approach it Like Lucio. Copyrighted, suckas!
JB and Brandon are back Post-BlizzCon 2016 and ready to chat!
Welcoming Sawfty and Ovadrive from the Overcast podcast and welcoming back Dan from Geek All Stars! Round table predictions about BlizzCon 2016.
We're back! Just the two of us. All about Halloween and other things.
Ten episodes and we're still here! We talk with Scott Kurtz, creator of PVPOnline as well as Steve Hamaker, creator of Plox and colorist extraordinaire. Congrats to our give-away winner, ssrjazz!
The incredible Barnacules (BARN-uh-kleez) joins us to talk about Overwatch and we turn it into the Overwatch counseling couch with a discussion about ADHD, depression, medication, and how it all relates to Overwatch.
Social media diva, Amber Osborne (aka Miss Destructo) joins us this week to talk Overwatch in VR, what the console version is like, favorite heroes, and shoot the breeze.
Josh and Dan Patriss from The Geek Allstars Podcast try to keep the show going even though Brandon is avoiding Dan and not on the show this week! We talk about some German translations, why Dan likes playing Overwatch, and the retirement of Chris Metzen.
Umphy and TheBigJB are finally joined by Lishadra! We explore how to get out of a rut, the latest patchnotes, what appeals to a non-FPS player about Overwatch, and dig into the lore of the Omnic Crisis.
HEADS UP: There's one almost-FBomb in this week's episode. We are joined this week by friend of the show and long-time friend of TheBigJB - WILDTREE! We've talked about him long enough that it's time to get him on. We talk more Sombra, game theory, why Genji is still good, and why you should stick with the payload. And we discover that the secret is in the swirl.
The Bastion animated short came out this week and man it kicked us right in the heart! We also talk about the PTR patch notes, new map, strats for Reaper, and more lore about Ana.
What the what? Even more hidden clues about Sombra. With gamescom just around the corner, are we looking at another hero announcement? We also talk about strategy for playing Ana, how cheaters can stop getting banned, and more awesome community content.
In a total surprise move, Blizzard released the Summer Games event. So much to talk about we even had to change the plan for this show!! We talk about the event itself, the future of Seasonal Events, more Ana backstory, and throw out some ideas for the game.
Our very first episode and we're thrilled to be here. There was a big-time patch released on 7/19. JB and Umphy talk about Ana, the new hero, changes to existing heroes, and changes to Competitive.
