Among the topics raised were the tsunami that hits the Defender map, how the eSports community has helped influence the game's map design, and the ongoing live streaming phenomenon and how it's affecting the Call of Duty series.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years.
