About Us

Kyle:

I started gaming at the ripe old age of 3 with Super Mario Bros. in my grandma’s basement, and I’ve been hopelessly addicted to pressing buttons ever since. Pretty sure humanity figured out its purpose in life with that one.

My expertise tends towards games with high mechanical demands like fighters, rhythm games, MOBAs, or platformers, but I can appreciate a good story too. Some of my all-time favorites include Dark Souls, Smash Bros., Spyro, DJ/Guitar Hero, and Dota 2.
Game collecting is my other passion—I see a lonely game in the wild and just can’t help but give it a loving home. When I’m not gaming or collecting, I’m probably running, reading, writing, traveling, or doing something with music.
Want to play games? Hit me up on Twitter @HeyItsFeroz51. I’m always looking for more fight/co-op/MOBA buddies!

Kaz:

Episode 133: kojima surprise

This week on Pause Screen Kaz did not projectile vomit on her first VR expedience, Kyle is just too good at platforms and gets himself stuck and William didn’t get to play much (except for mobile games, who want’s to hear about that?) On the Hype train we are all surprised with the release date of Death Stranding. We talk about the excrement or derision surrounding the game. Oh and the fetus in the expansion pack.  We all get confused at the new Call of Duty naming scheme and the new Pokemon Sleep game, but can still be excited about them.  In discussions we talk about the nature and future of Esports, are we doomed to just watch games come and go as companies pour money into it as a marketing tactic? Last of all we talk about the direction MIcrosoft is taking, will we see the end of console exclusives soon? Come Pause with us!

HYPE TRAIN *toot toot*

Discussion:

Blizzard’s Overwatch League commissioner has left for Epic Games.

Do eSports have a real future? Or are we doomed to just watch games come and go as companies pour money into it as a marketing tactic? https://www.pcgamer.com/overwatch-league-commissioner-to-leave-blizzard-for-epic-games/

Microsoft announced that they’re expanding Games Pass to PC, and that they’ll be putting their future releases—including Gears 5!—on Steam.

Interesting play, especially considering they’re set to announce new hardware in a couple of weeks. They’re really pushing having their games everywhere and building an ecosystem, rather than a strict console strategy. https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2019/05/30/microsoft-approach-to-pc-gaming/?ocid=XGP_soc_omc_xbo_tw_Photo_lrn_5.30.1
