Episode #031: Gamer Speak — The Language of Destiny…and other games.

This is probably one of the goofiest shows we have ever recorded. This means you should kick back and enjoy the listen. We’re just having a good time with this show topic.

On Happy Hour from the Tower, we’re going bi-lingual with vocabulary common for gamers but maybe not-so-common outside of the console. Tee presents in a game show format what Guardians are speaking on Twitch and in Fireteam Chat, and Nick & Brandon try to figure out what these terms mean.

Remember, Guardians, to leave us your feedback at 703.791.1701 or podcast (at) happyhourfromthetower (dot) com. We’d love to hear from you!
