Cheers, loves! Episode 78 of The Cavalry is here! Joining us this week are Matt Zornes aka Slambo and joining us back and blazing in is Melissa Schissler aka Melarina.

(For the OCD like me: The "I" was left lowercase in the title on purpose.)

Opening up this episode is a discussion on... dare we say it... playing other games rather than Overwatch?! Taking a break is sometimes a good thing. We talk about what else we play and what a healthy balance is in gaming.

Then it's onto Overwatch news:
