Rather Be Playing 11: Toilet Games with Eric Variz

Rather Be Playing Episode Episode 11: Toilet Games with Eric Variz

Rather Be Playing welcomes its very first guest to the podcast! Eric Variz joins us from the Same Team Y’all podcast to talk with us about what he would rather be playing (spoiler: it’s Destiny 2). We also go into graphic detail about gaming during parenthood and finding time for our favorite hobby when there are babies in the house. Sometimes your only option is the porcelain throne, ever dependable.

Despite how hard it can be, we did find time to play many, many games this week and we’ve got a lot to say about them. With the Super NES Classic, Destiny 2, and a long-awaited return to Metroid finally out, there’s a lot to cover. And because that somehow still wasn’t enough, we went and played even more games. Elliot is in love with Yakuza 0, Stevo enjoyed Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, and Josh and Eric have been pounding away at Destiny 2.

Of course with Eric on the cast, and with LexiCON only days away, we had to get some behind the scenes info on the operation. Eric will not only be there with Tess to promote the Same Team Y’all and Same Peaks Y’all podcasts, but he’s also the brains behind the operation. It’s only days away now so start making preparations to come see us! We’ll be there manning our booth and giving away pins. And Stevo and Elliot will be joining Eric and Tess for a panel on podcasting, as Josh attends in spirit. Hope to see you there.
