Episode 48 – Fools of the Mountain

“The first wing of Blackrock mountain has been a blast. Now you can buy WoW gold with real life money and did the April Fools fool you?”


General Blizzard

This week saw Blizzard up to no good with their usual April Fools pranks. T.I.N.D.R for Garrison followers, BMotes, Big Head Mode in Heroes of the Storm, Selfies in DIablo and the always hilarious April Fools patch notes for World of Warcraft were some of the highlights.


Heroes of the Storm

The founders pack is no longer available for purchase and feedback can be left on the forums for the beta as it closes in on release… at least that’s what we think!


World of Warcraft

WoW token goes live in the US this week, as for EU.. well who knows. Soon..


Hearthstone

Last week saw the introduction of Blackrock Mountain. Thom and Marty review the first wing and look ahead to the 2nd Wing – Molten Core

 

 

Episode 44 – Level 34

“New maps and new characters for both Heroes of the Storm and Overwatch has been announced, oh, and also a little adventure for Hearthstone.”


It’s the weekend after Pax East and there is so much news!


World of Warcraft

Special mention goes out to Doubleagent, that crazy guy who has been leveling a neutral Pandaren in the Pandaren starter zone dinged 100.


Heroes of the Storm

Coming soon to the Nexus, if you are currently in the beta you might get selected by Blizzard and receive some additional keys which you can hand out to your buddies.

From Pax the New Battleground: Tomb of the Spider queen was shown off. It’s an underground location that is pretty unique to the Nexus so far as it’s incredibly small.

Also a new hero video of Sylvanas Windrunner. She is looking pretty awesome.

Also on the way is more progression ideas and clans. It seems Heroes of the Storm is moving along nicely.


Overwatch

Do not adjust your set, we do have some Overwatch news. This sees the introduction of two new heroes and one new payload map.

Welcome aboard Zarya & McCree.


Hearthstone

Probably the most exciting news to come out of Pax (in our opinion) was the announcement of a new Hearthstone adventure, Blackrock Mountain. We had hinted at it in our previous show but now it’s official.

Also Marty mentions about an interesting talk on the UI design for Hearthstone and how the game was brought to life.

Episode 43 – Selfies! Selfies everywhere!

“Buy WoW gold for money with the new WoW token. Maybe Blackrock Mountain is the new HS adventure. But first, let me take a selfie.” 


Hearthstone

It’s heating up in Hearthstone as a new month is upon us which can mean only one thing. New card back! This Ragnaros card back will make a nice addition to the collection.

Also speaking of Ragnaros who hangs out in Molten Core in Blackrock Mountain, could the next adventure mode be set there?


World of Warcraft

Soon you won’t have to pay for a WoW sub… if you have a lot of gold. Or if you need gold, this could be a solution for you!

New additions are coming to Darkmoon Faire, including the Darkmoon Faire Race, start your engines!

This week also say Lead Designer Ion Hazzikostas host a Raid and Dungeon Q&A with CM Lore.

Episode 42 – The Race Is Over

“The race for world first in World of Warcraft is over and the winner has been found but it sadly isn’t the Danish Terrace whom I put my money on.” 


World of Warcraft

Blackrock Foundry got conquered on Mythic mode and in a closely fought contest the winner was…..

6.1 goes live this week with many new small items and features, including the elusive S.E.L.F.I.E stick.. oh boy there is just no escaping them is there!


Hearthstone

Good news for fans who watch games in Hearthstone as spectator mode will see some improvements. Now let’s just hope we’ll soon be able to view friends drafting in Arena!

World of Warcraft

Mounting at Level 1? That’s crazy talk! No! It’s true, if you are a Heirloom collector you better listen carefully to see how you can get your hands on this mount.


Diablo

Season One is complete. What does this means now? Also when might we see Season 2?
