Follow me on twitter @afkflynn,  the show’s official twitter account will be back sometime in the next week as we take back ownership of theafkpodcast.com domaine.  

Starting with the next episode the podcast recording will be live stream via my YouTube channel.  The link will be posted at theafkpodcast.net and in our Steam group soon.

I’m starting a gaming blog.  I’ll be posting short reviews and opinion pieces.  My first blog post is up at theafkpodcast.net and it’s about Anthem.  My goal is to keep these short and to the point. One of the things I hate about game reviews is all the filler.  I hope to cut all the crap and keep it short.
