Producer's Note: Kelvin ran into some technical issues with his ISP last week and was thrown back into the stone age (basically he didn't have access to his internet for an entire weekend; crazy, we know). The Epic Arcade boys took a break last week but the show must go on! So what do we do? An episode recap, of course! So, on the show today, we picked one of our favorite episodes from the past. A conversation between Jeff and Keren (The Macha Men Podcast) about the status of Half-Life 3 and the interest, hobbies, and games they love. Epic Arcade Specials is a segment where we talk to people from the gaming industry, fromgame developers, esport athletes to people just like us.
