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

- Jirard (aka The Completionist: https://www.youtube.com/c/ThatOneVideoGamer) 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 (https://www.youtube.com/c/superbeardbros). He's a host on the newly re-launched X-Play (https://www.youtube.com/c/xplay) 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.

8819

Welcome back to Friends Per Second! This week Jirard is off sick so we're joined by the incorrigible Tamoor Hussain. We chat about those GTA VI leaks and wonder aloud: 'how is this different to a journalist leaking insider scoops (besides the whole, illegal break-and-entering thing). Plus, we sat down with the showrunner for Cyberpunk Edgerunners, Rafal Jaki, and he talked us through the show's creation from thought bubble in his brain to a show that is *kinda* rehabilitating Cyberpunk 2077 better than any patch or update ever did. 

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.

Welcome back to Friends Per Second! This week Jake is away (in Iceland?!?) and as a replacement/upgrade we have the awesome Gene Park of The Washington Post. He joins us as we react to Jim Ryan's very public calling out of Phil Spencer over the Activision Blizzard deal, we ask 'is time up for 343i' and we go where no podcast has ever gone before: we argue about The Last of Us Part 1's $70 price tag. 

Our other special guest for the week is Graeme Struthers. He was one of the founders of Devolver Digital and he tells us how he and his colleagues built the most successful indie label on the planet, from Hotline Miami to Fall Guys and beyond. 

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.

Ep 2: Diablo Immortal + Resident Evil feat. The Sphere Hunter
10017

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.   

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

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