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.

Episode 52 – Snake! Snake! Oh, it’s a snake!

For this episode of Swag Tier, Caitlin joins Megan and Steven to tell them about her first experience attending PAX South.  Other topics include:

  • a story Steven crafted for Caitlin using Rory’s Story Cubes where he was voluntold to include snakes as protagonists;
  • Caitlin’s failed attempts to acquire swag at PAX South;
  • Steven’s first experience as a PAX Exhibitor;
  • how Megan and Caitlin almost ditched a night out with friends to stay home and play Overcooked in their pajamas.

Episode 51 – Under the sea

Join Megan and Steven as Megan recounts a recent visit to Caitlin’s mom’s house that almost ended in a trip to the emergency vet, and Steven gives us the lowdown on his PAX South 2017 volunteering schedule.  Other topics include:

  • which team Caitlin’s family would be if they were in a Pokemon game;
  • Megan’s hopes and dreams that Nexon’s unannounced MOBA title will turn out to be League of Kpop;
  • and an executive summary of an old Gawker article about an unfortunate calamari-eating experience.

Episode 50 – Where Megan realizes her girlfriend is cool

We continue debriefing about MAGFest, with a cameo from Smath stealing some of the thunder from the panel that Megan, Caitlin, and their friend Carrie hosted: LGBT+ Gaming – Where we are, where we can go, and how we can get there. Tune in to hear how it went!

Episode 49 – The broken episode

In this episode of Swag Tier, Megan relives a painful massage “therapy” experience where her masseur more or less broke her body, Steven tells the tale of his bus breaking down on the way to Maryland for MAGFest, and unbeknownst to our listeners who don’t read our episode descriptions, Megan accidentally deleted the audio for the last episode of Swag Tier when she uploaded the audio for this episode.  Other topics include Megan’s plans to (never) finish her Mamamoo fanfiction and Steven’s plans to volunteer at MAGFest 2017.

Episode 48 – A New Year’s episode about Christmas

Yes, we released episodes precisely on New Year’s and Christmas. No, we didn’t talk about either occasion on their respective episodes. Yes, we’re covering Christmas topics on New Year’s. No, we didn’t even finish talking about everything we planned to. Yes, this is precisely how Swag Tier operates.

Episode 47 – Three Nipples Down

In this Pokemon-heavy episode of Swag Tier, Megan tells listeners about a bath bomb experience gone wrong, and Steven recaps a confrontational speed dating experience he had at New York Comic Con.  They also prove that their college degrees were not wasted dollars by doing math both correctly AND quickly for the first time on air.

Episode 46 – Psychopath in the making

When Megan isn’t busy laughing at Caitlin’s Pokemon GO misfortunes, she’s staying up all night to play Bejeweled Stars.  And when Steven isn’t busy keeping busy, he’s putting hours into Final Fantasy XV.  Join us on this week’s episode of Swag Tier to hear about these two games, the new iOS exclusive Mario game, and a special Swag Tier prediction of when Megan will finally get around to opening and playing some of the RPG’s she (and others) paid full price for but can probably be found at Five Below these days.

Episode 45 – Four degrees of separation

How many computer science graduates does it take to count degrees of separation between people? How much studying does it take to bring out regex jokes in normal conversation? How much do Ariana Grande tickets need to cost for Megan to realize it’s a ridiculous expense? Join us and find out!

Episode 44 – A faint flash of Final Fantasy XV

We pull a Swag Tier Switch this episode as our predetermined intro topic of Final Fantasy XV quickly gives way to:

  • preorders;
  • Final Fantasy music;
  • dabbing;
  • creative Christmas gifts;
  • broken screens;
  • Wheelchair Caitlin (which sounds like a League of Legends skin).
