In this episode, MasterWife and MasterJoe discuss the idea of party management in video games to see how it can be applied in real life. Whether at work, in class, on the court or on the beach, we'll help you power up your social circles by making sure you've got the right kind of company for the situation!
In this episode, MasterWife and MasterJoe talk about using the concept of inventory management in gaming to help with the constant struggle to make room for yourself, your job, your friendships, goals, dreams, relationships, health, and aspirations in the real world. You'd never hunt a Rathian without Antidote, so never go job hunting without pants!
In this episode, MasterWife and MasterJoe are joined by the indie game developer behind the One Night Stand, the lovely Lucy Blundell. We chat about her games' recent nomination for an Independent Games Festival award, why she should marry her boyfriend and the logistics of milking cows (or people?) on the Nintendo Switch.
MAGfest 2017 was awesome! There's nothing quite like pressing your face against a friend's face, attending random elevator parties, playing Japanese rhythm games POORLY, having your face melted repeatedly by amazing artists and DJs, and planning the post-mortem services for your bank account after you finish buying all of the merch on the floor.
Odds are, you don't know all that much about the real people who populate your friends lists. So how can we cure the anti-socialness of social media? Simple. By being brave enough to be social again! In this episode, MasterWife and MasterJoe discuss the idea of demystifying the mystery of avatars and getting to know the people behind them to form more meaningful relationships.

Funny thing is, in a episode about support, we didn't even talk about the great Mako Mankanshoku. Anyway, greetings from MasterJoe and Dr. MasterWife! It's been quite a while but the Masters are back in #HPHQ and better than ever. We've had a tough time in the madness but our amazing HPeeps have supported us and we think that's pretty awesome. In fact it's so awesome that we decided to talk about the importance of support.
Life can be pretty challenging sometimes (don't we know). You may have an important test to study for or a big assignment at work to get done. Maybe you're just trying not to get robbed in the Dark Zone in The Division. Just like in video games, when the going gets tough, the tough bring support classes! Healers, engineers, spell casters, more healers! You can always use more healers.
MasterWife discusses her long and arduous journey from graduate student to doctorate degree holder and MasterJoe spouts nonsense while reacting to multiple trigger words and phrases, resulting in a few songs and some movie quotes. Prepare yourselves HPeeps. Support is inbound!
P.S. Never get the airport sandwich.
P.S.S. Sorry this episode is a bit hot on the EQ.
