Love and Respect all around, such a jolly community really helps represent what EZA is all about and what the guys try to preach: have passion for and enjoy the games we play and talk about.

RE: Favorite Overwatch Character
I'll actually go another step and say my favs from each class!
Offense: Genji. cyborg ninjas are ALWAYS cool to me (thank you MGS) but his agility and throwing stars are very fun to be a nuisance with and when you get in a good groove you can be zipping across the battlefield as an elusive force of destruction.
Defense: Junkrat. his design is incredibly (especially his Legendary Hayseed and Jester skins) and his personality exudes insanity and fun in equal measures. Probably the character I play the best with overall.
Tank: Reinhardt. this one was really tough as pretty much all the tanks (except sometimes Winston) are great and a blast to play in different situations, but the old over the top Knight who can just pin a character to a wall and blow through entire teams with a good charge while also working very well with other teammates by blocking for higher damage outputers makes Reinhardt #1.
Support: Lucio. Hands down the best support character; good damage, great AOE healing and speed support to reach objectives faster, and his pushback shot is probably one the best counters to Roadhog I've seen so far. IMO he's probably over the best character in the entire game (in terms of gameplay not design)
RE: The EZA "VIKINGS" Watch Club - Season One
@GMan I'd just say that Viking's honor is a bit different than what we'd traditionally think about when we say honor, and as the series goes on you'll learn that even Christians' "honor" is different than what you'd think. Basically the series does a great job of showing the difference and similarities of tradition, honor, and beliefs between several different cultures of the time as it goes on. So jolly to see you guys going through this show though :)

Your History with EZA
Hey everyone, since E3 went off amazing and EZA is continuing to grow I thought now would be a good time to just share my own little history with the Allies and GT, but also to hear everyone else's history and what brought us together as a community.
So back when I was in maybe 4th or 5th grade I had 2 news feeds that fed my obsession with games as a kid: GameInformer magazine and Gametrailers. While I would collect issues of the former with my brothers, my oldest brother introduced me to Gametrailers and would let me borrow his laptop to binge watch trailers on the site for hours. Gametrailers continued to be the site I turned to for years to come for gameplay, reveal trailers, and as my most trusted site for reviews. However, around the late 2000's, I started to get turned off by the content they were producing now especially Invisible Walls and honestly anything having to do with Marcus Beer (REALLY not a fan). And so for probably 4 or so years I didn't even go back to GT, having moved onto other gaming outlets like IGN and RoosterTeeth, but eventually I became kinda jaded by the negativity I was finding in the gaming community and media, how everyone was just overly critical and seemed to be not really enjoying the games they covering.
So on a whim I went back to Gametrailers in late 2014/early 2015 and found a very different GT. A GT that was much smaller with less than 10 guys, but was excited about the games they covered and seemed to have a general positivity and excitement for what they did that I hadn't seen anywhere else lately. Kyle and Jones and Blood with the rotating guest funny but insightful news coverage in GT Live, Ian and Elyse's hilarity in Mandatory Update, Huber's pure joy and excitement in Huber Hype, Ben being the ultimate creative DM and trying to rangle the likes of Hogger and his companions in TTA; all of these shows and personalities just filled me with excitement and joy about games that I hadn't felt in years. And then came the shutdown. I was devastated, I had finally comeback and found the perfect outlet with some of my favorite people on the internet (with me lurking for that year being to reserved to interact in the forums or their Twitch) and to see all of these talented people suddenly get laid off was heartbreaking. Like many others I begged for them to do something together and just keep making content and we'd do whatever we could to support them.
Cut to my college Spring break, decided to go hang out with two of my buddies and I go and freak my friends out by almost shouting with joy with EZA's announcement video. I immediately went and donated on Patreon (only $5, you guys doing $200 though are amazing thank you so much) and since then I've tried to be much less reserved and be more involved on the Twitch streams and within the community, because as I think newcomers from E3 have come to realize, EZA creates some of the best content on the internet and has some of the best personalities and hard working creators around, something I'm so grateful for every time I see their content.
So that's my story! I want this thread to share everyone's experiences because I'm interested in all of your guys' stories! So please comment and share what your guys experience with EZA/GT has been whether you're new or old!
Love and Respect
RE: Who else is as excited for Persona 5 as Ben, Huber, Brad, and me?
The HYPE is palpable for me, I'm rebuying Persona 4 this summer to hold me over
