Short Pause Weekly Rewind | Week of April 16th, 2017
Happy Friday, gamers! Another week bites the dust, and lots of stuff has been going on -- as always -- within the walls of the Short Pause offices over the course of the last seven days. In the spirit of trying something new, we felt it’d be a novel idea to toss this post up at the end of the week to highlight not only some of the streams and articles you may have missed from us on the site here at Short Pause, but to shine a spotlight on some of the content from a few of our friends as well.
Short Pause Gaming Podcast #112
In case you missed the initial post, our latest podcast is available now on iTunes, Soundcloud, TuneIn Radio, and Google Play. The video version of the show can be found on our YouTube channel. Ben, Bender and Frankie tackled this week’s new releases, the Star Wars Battlefront 2 reveal, the latest happenings from Nintendo, and more!
