Episode 139: Free to Play (Documentary)

A little change of pace this week as the main segment is on a movie (documentary) instead of a video game.  The movie, Free to Play, does however have a strong video game presence, as it focuses on three of the world's top DOTA 2 players as they get ready for and compete in an international DOTA 2 tournament with the largest prize pot in e-sports history.  None of the Athletes really have had much experience or interest in the e-sports scene or DOTA 2, but Free to Play may have changed our minds as it gives an inside look at the lives of three of the competitors along with explaining the basics of DOTA 2.  We also address the potentially misleading title and our thoughts on whether or not Free to Play is just a DOTA 2 commercial.
