Episode 70 – The Life-Changing Magic of Throwing Your Snake Out

When Marie Kondo advised her loyal fanbase to throw out anything that doesn’t spark joy, we’re pretty sure that didn’t include accidentally throwing out a beloved slithery family member. Join Megan and Steven in this episode of Swag Tier where they talk about lost (and found!) snakes and pooping in the forest.

Episode 68 – House Guests

Steven and Megan discuss some uninvited fuzzy house guests and a Korean culture convention/trade show scheduled for November that might turn out to be a scam.

Episode 62 – Things that make you squirm

In this episode of Swag Tier, Megan and Steven somehow manage to spend almost an entire half hour talking about bugs.  And not even software bugs!  Literally, creepy/crawly/scuttle-y bugs.  Tune in to hear about silverfish gangs, bug-squashings gone wrong, and a unique approach to ignoring a colony of ants in your apartment.

Episode 59 – Swag Tier’s stamp of approval for Interphex

In this episode of Swag Tier, Steven talks about non-gaming conventions he has attended at Megan’s favorite convention center, the Jacob Javits Center.  Tune in to hear how Steven manages to learn about biomedical and pharmaceutical manufacturing, eat freshly baked cookies, and win contests all in one day!

INTERPHEX, the premier pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device development and manufacturing event where you can “Experience Science through Commercialization”.

New York Build Expo, the leading construction & design expo to focus exclusively on projects across New York City.

Episode 58 – The Easter Bunny Brings All the Dogs to the Yard

At last, the episode you’ve all been waiting for – Swag Tier finally brings you a full length feature about Final Fantasy Explorers.  Ok, it’s not really a “full length” feature unless you define full length as approximately 10 minutes, but that’s still one third of a 30 minute episode, which is a lot of air time for a game that is over one year old.  Other topics include:

  • the massive task of cleaning Megan’s closet;
  • the relationship between game difficulty and playability in various games;
  • and Frizbee’s first (and for her sake, hopefully last) encounter with the Easter Bunny.

Episode 55 – A net positive?

Megan is getting back into League of Legends, and she’s trying to convince Steven to as well!  This episode includes talk about esports and the pros, MMO’s, PAX, and possible sponsorships .  This may be one of the few episodes where Megan isn’t losing sponsorships, but she’s still making enemies with her candid opinions.

Episode 54 – My horse curse

In this episode of Swag Tier, Megan and Steven review the popular mobile dating sim, My Horse Prince.  Ok, it’s really Megan who does the review and Steven who asks questions and paints hypothetical situations (because let’s be real, Megan is the only one crazy enough to actually play a dating sim about a horse).  But they both come to the same conclusion – that My Horse Prince deserves the rating of one steaming pile of horse poop.  Other topics include some insight into Steven’s food adventures in Budapest and weird apps in the Google Play Store.

Episode 53 – Overcooked

Last episode, Megan and Caitlin touched upon on their latest obsession, Overcooked. But a game this fun deserves more than just a few minutes, and so we’re not ashamed that we inadvertently spent nearly the whole episode hyping it up even further.  Of course, we wouldn’t be Swag Tier if we didn’t wander off on a couple of non-gaming related tangents such as driving in Portugal and losing sponsorships.
