“The tavern is busier than ever. There’s evil lurking in the jungle. And an eternal conflict is invading the Nexus. Seems like a pretty normal week to me.”


Starcraft 2

Whispers of Oblivion a Prologue for Legacy of the Void will be heading our way soon. It promises a special three mission adventure which will bridge the storyline between the new and previous expansion.


World of Warcraft

Episode 57 – Flying in Draenor

“First they said you might be able to fly. Then they said you weren’t. But now you will for sure be able to fly in Draenor. If they take it away again we’ll go for a brawl in the Tavern.”


World of Warcraft

The developers finally reached a final conclusion and decided that flying WILL be available in Draenor.


Heroes of the Storm

Within the first week of Heroes of the Storm the first new hero got added which is the crusader from Diablo 3: Johanna

Episode 53 – Ups and Downs

“Subscriptions in World of Warcraft are down while the numbers for Hearthstone has increased, and something else that has increased is the amount of heroes in the nexus.”


Guests: Dan “Zhayne” Slack, Lennart “Deathbloom Andersson


Heroes of the Storm

Two new heroes are being added to the game very soon. It’s Kael’thas and Johanna the crusader from Diablo 3 – and as usual there’s quite a few skins a mounts as well.


World of Warcraft

The big increase of numbers in the start of the expansion didn’t hold up. Seems like WoW has lost about 3 million subscribers.

Patch 6.2 will introduce something new which is called Bonus Events which will be active every weekend. We take a closer look at what you can expect.


Hearthstone

In contrast to WoW it seems that the amount of people who is playing Hearthstone just keeps increasing.

Episode 52 – Welcome Back

“Thom is back from ice cold Iceland so we are heading into the last wing of Blackrock Mountain to warm him up again. Meanwhile in Hollywood the WoW movie got delayed once again.”


General Blizzard

The Warcraft movie got delayed once again but because Universal thought it would be a good summer block buster.


Heroes of the Storm

With the release of Heroes of the Storm you’ll also be able to buy a special starter pack with 5 characters, a skin, and a special mount only available through the starter pack.


Hearthstone

The last wing of Blackrock Mountain is out and we talk about our experience in the mountain and what we thought was good and bad.

Episode 50: Danish Fever

“We are pulling our hairs out while we still try to beat the heroics from last weeks wing in hearthstone. Heroes got a release date. And WoW announced a new patch.”


Heroes of the Storm

The official release date has finally been announced.


Hearthstone

It’s finally here. What we’ve all been waiting for. Productivity all over has decreased because Hearthstone has been released for phone.

And the sweet card back for April has been released as well (pun intended).


World of Warcraft

And loads of new features has been announced when we take a look at patch 6.2 – and what looks particular interesting is the time walking feature which allows you to scale down to old school level dungeons.

 

Episode 47 – Danish Mouth

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.

spiderqueen

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 41 – A Fresh Start

“Are you ready for a fresh start in Diablo, Season 2 begins! and Light your lantern as the Lunar Festival has arrived” 


General Blizzard

Duncan Jones (Director of the Warcraft Movie) has been talking about the movie and potential marketing moves.


World of Warcraft

Argi the Space goat mini pet rakes in an impressive $1.9 million for the Red Cross for the ongoing Ebola relief efforts.

The Lunar Festival is here with a new pet, but not too much to offer veteran players sadly.


Diablo

Season 2 has begun and we talk about starting over and why you should… or shouldn’t..


Heroes of the Storm

There is an Upcoming WoW and Heroes promotion. We talk about how they might implement this. Cross over stuff is awesome!

Also we talk about the state of ranked play and with the Lunar Festival in full swing in Azeroth, The Nexus will reap it’s benefits with a XP Boost.

 

Episode 40 – Mount Up, Feet Up

“Season One in Diablo is finally over.. no seriously it’s done… Hell I thought it would never end..” 


General Blizzard

An article was posted (then pulled, and reposted) on Yahoo Finance with leaks from inside Blizzard HQ. We are going through all of these leaks/rumors and give our opinion about it.


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?


Heroes of the Storm

New skins! They look so good.
