About

Quit The Build started in 2015 as a Facebook group of friends discussing the latest video game and entertainment news. It turned into a bi-weekly podcast and has since evolved into a full-blown network of entertainment. Quit The Build is more than a podcast and accompanying website- we are an organization of content creators with a growing community of like-minded gamers and media entertainment lovers. Our goal is to provide a toxic-free clubhouse environment with gaming and entertainment as a focus for delivering content to our community.

Keep calm and quit the build.

Our brand name is a direct reflection of our philosophy behind gaming- we don't get mad, we simply "quit the build." A phrase coined by friends and gamers during the launch of Halo 5: Guardians, "quit the build" simply means to restart your game. By restarting your game, you not only give yourself time to cool down, but you also load into a fresh build of the game which can often time alleviate minor bugs or glitches. It can even connect you to a new server lobby in multiplayer matches pitting you against a fresh pool of players.
