Ep 100 - ***SPECIAL*** 1v1 Major Nelson

Larry Hryb, aka Major Nelson. His title says "Director of Programming for XBox Live", but that is only one of the many hats that this legend of the industry wears. In our very special interview for episode 100 we talk to him about his life into gaming. How a chance crossing of the hallway at Microsoft started him on the journey to being one of the most recognisable names in the gaming community, and how he influenced every XBox since the 360! We also talk about the gaming industry and hear his opinions of how it's changed over the years, including his thoughts on gaming's "golden era", and where it will be in 20 years time.

This is an episode not to be missed, and if you finish listening to it and feel the same way, make sure you share it with your fellow gamer so they can hear an incredible story told.

We finish things up with a special thank you message to all those who have been involved, including you, over the last two years leading up to this episode.

This week, world renowned foreign correspondent and now Australian investigative reporter and journalist Peter Stefanovic, will be airing his story about eSports that, in his own words, all of the research he had done couldn't have prepared him for.

We've known all along how eSports is starting to take off in Australia, and it's fun listening to someone who is only just finding out about it, have their mind blown. He talks about his experience at the Intel Extreme Masters, and his interviews with some of the world's top paid Australian eSports and twitch streaming stars!

Hey guys, Pete here!

A little different this week, I was invited onto the Lamestorming Podcast by hosts Ben Slinger and Trevor Scott for a bit of fun, worked out really well because Dan is away at the moment on holiday so we couldn't do the usual show..

Lamestorming is a Podcast by these two great lads who like to have some fun and mess around with gaming concepts using a game called 'click pitch' and 3 people using a random word generator.

In this week's Podcast we're going to play you the fun I had joining the guys on Lamestorming - enjoy!
