Updated: The stream archive has been added to our story.

Gootecks and Slasher are discussing the state of eSports with a very special guest on The Untitled Esports Show. This guest is none other than Mike Ross himself.

The last time we saw Gootecks and Mike Ross address the concept of eSports was during their rather tongue in cheek E.S.P.O.R.T.S. tee shirt campaign. They're back two years later to open up with a much more straightforward approach.

We're not certain all that's in store for their talk here, but thus far the group has discussed some of what they've seen from a more inside perspective around the time of Street Fighter 5's launch. They've briefly recounted how Capcom reached out to them for the famous Lupe Fiasco vs. CYG|Daigo exhibition, for instance.

It's been awhile since we've heard from Mike Ross, as he's been on a bit of a hiatus from his prior status in the fighting game community.

Topics are scheduled to cover things like Etika, and the racism issues that impacted Echo Fox. With these three guys in the mix, the discussion should be very lively and entertaining.

You can find the full stream archive below.

During the broadcast, Mike Ross, Gootecks, and Slasher discussed the current state of fighting games and eSports, as well as current events. Mike Ross talks about what he's currently playing — which includes Mortal Kombat 11 — what he thinks about Street Fighter 5 at this point in time, and more.

There is quite a bit of language NSFW used here, so be careful where you watch.
