It's episode 5 of the @Slips and Hippo show! We talk about the exciting events of Viennality 2018, what it means going forward for the meta of the game, and we once again discuss why the FGC matters to us. If you're going to listen to only a few parts of the show, you gotta tune in starting at 1:55:00, which features a very personal story from Slips about why he still plays that will make you want to immediately grab a controller and start grinding any fighting game. You can't miss it! Featuring videos by @Noble Raptor again!
