GMD Ep24: That Shitty Roommate Who Leaves You Sticky Notes

GMD Episode 24In this week’s gaming news Ben and Jared opine on why they don’t like open betas, and Alex talks about Undertale. Along the way the discussion somehow turns to facial hair and whether or not Alex likes guys with beards.

This episode’s Top 3 List is a bit different, as each co-host has to choose their single favorite gaming controller of all time (Ben points out that this is still technically a “Top 3” list, as 1+1+1 = 3). Finally, a fairly intense The Worst Thing That Happened To Us This Week segment leads to an examination of the important difference between a person who says “I play video games” vs. one who proclaims “I am a gamer”.

After having some unexpected success with his indie MORPG NEStalgia, much of Ben’s free time is now spent running his very own gaming community.
