TYM Podcast Ep 9: OG Xbox player eazytobeat Returns - Feat. Gerchap, m2dave, mastermalone and STORMS

The Team and I return with our latest Test Your Might Podcast... episode 9! The special part about the podcast is we bring on @eazytobeat who some may remember from back in the 2005 era when clans ruled the online competitive scene. eazytobeat was and still is an Xbox player and back then he was one of the select few that only the BEST players stood a chance competing against him. The thing is, not all of the players from back in that time are still around, so having eazytobeat return, if not just to come to the forums to chill with us, is super cool.

Of course I am also joined by the reputable members of the community, @Gerchap, @M2Dave and @mastermalone. We talk to eazytobeat to find out about his originals of playing Mortal Kombat. In fact, part of the way in, I thought of how @Shock would very much appreciate eazytobeat's UMK3 stories!

We do our best to keep our casts timed in good fashion and...

Your #SummitOfTime Kombatants! Get hype for May 10th - 12th

Bruce Campbell officially denies the rumor that he's DLC in MK11. Truth? Or smokescreen?

Either this is an attempt of Bruce to troll us, or NRS trolled us all along, or … well, I don't know. This is getting really weird.

Or possibly reverse psychology at its finest.
