Ultimate Audio Bang podcast: what shooter goes well with D&D?

On this week's episode of the Ultimate Audio Bang podcast Imogen and I chat EA sharing Apex Legends' ping system with other companies, Call Of Duty: Vanguard things, and the fact Destiny 2 is adding a big lady. I for one am a fan of this big lady, as her getup reminds me of a candelabra, which is nice.

For our theme, we consider what FPS universes would make for a good Dungeons and Dragons campaign. Predictably we fall back on some old favourites, including Overwatch and Imogen's desire to roleplay as Reinhardt and bash everything with a large hammer.

It was Imogen's turn to surprise me with some player names, and we learn a lot about each other and our reactions to certain fruit. After this episode, I'm not sure I'll ever eat a kiwi again.
