Hey guys!!! It’s Steve with Death by Lag. I thought it would be a good idea to let everyone know our schedule for releasing new content every week if you haven’t already figured it out.

Tuesday: Full play videos, you can check those out over at YouTube, currently I am making my way through Alien: Isolation

Wednesday: Reviews, we have Kelly, Ricky and Jason working on reviews and we hope to get at least one out a week to begin with and possibly more as time goes on.

Thursday: Streaming, we plan on streaming every Thursday over at Twitch from 7:00pm to 9:00pm pst. If you miss the live stream you can still watch the video over on our YouTube channel. Those videos will come out under the Death by Lag Uncut title.

Friday: Podcast, we will release a new episode of 2 1/2 stars every Friday. If you don’t already know what 2 1/2 stars is, it’s a podcast about movies with 2 1/2 stars or lower on Netflix, go check it out were on iTunes.

Saturday: Random video, it could be me running around in Ori and the Blind Forest or it could be Erik yelling at Bloodborne, who knows… OK well we do, but you will find out what it is when it comes out on Saturday.

I hope this helps you keep up to date on all things Death by Lag. My goal is to continue to release fun interesting content for you to enjoy and continue to improve on what we are already doing. If you have any suggestions on how to make this site better don’t hesitate to post it in the comments below.
