Ten Ton Hammer Video of the Day

There's one way to put the Hi-Rez boss in a good mood.

Hi-Rez Studios today posted the second episode of their SMITE Minion Has Spawned series aptly titled Sick and Fired. The episode starts out with Hi-Rez boss Todd Howard in an overly happy mood thanks to his community manager being out sick. Unfortunately, a temporary substitute leads to rampant layoff speculation and pretty soon the workplace is up in arms fearing layoffs. Seriously, who wouldn’t like to hang out in the Hi-Rez office for one day just to see what these guys pull on each other?

Can Todd Harris survive the MOBA style office revolt? Check out today's video to find out.

is a free-to-play MOBA that you can learn more about here.

In a brand new "24 Hour Time Limit" I venture from DOTA 2 to SMITE. Does a change of a camera angle make such a different to the way the genre plays?
