We have Justin Varghese, Marketing Manager of North America for Dreamhack, the largest digital festival around! We also dive into the history of Kingdom Hearts and Apex Legends.
We have a special guest this week! Justin Varghese joins us to discuss gaming and rising up in the professional eSports scene. We dive into Kingdom Hearts and how it changed from the early days to today. We also talk a lot about our love for Apex Legends as the new battle royale that's taken over the world by storm.
In our news, Activision Blizzard laid off a ton of employees and we share our thoughts. Ubisoft on the other hand doesn't fire people but reports strong profits. Nintendo had a direct revealing Super Mario Maker 2, Legend of Zelda Link's Awakening being remade and many more great looking games. Bioware also says they're not done with the Mass Effect series.
Our discussion has us digging into Justin's experience as an eSports commentator in several leagues around the country. He eventually found himself with a full-time position at Dreamhack as the Marketing Manager for North America. Now he's working on bringing people to what may be their largest Dreamhack yet: Dreamhack Dallas. It's right here in our backyard and it sounds amazing! Learn all about Dreamhack and why you definitely want to check this one out.
