Cargo shorts not pictured
Bust out your grill and put some sandals over those socks, Guardian: it's time to build the dad loadout.  This week, we discuss the phenomenon of the "dad build."  It's a concept that has arisen from players pursuing in-game equipment that is useful but also attainable in the hopes that they can stay competitive without having to neglect their real-world responsibilities.

Now, allow me to channel my inner dad and ask you all to just sit and listen to the show quietly.  Don't make me pull this podcast over.

EXP Podcast #535: Mixer Ninjutsu

The happy face of a rich man getting richer

 Or maybe Tyler "Ninja" Blevins is so damn he rich he can just do whatever he wants!
