RNG is Random... Who Knew!?


Our friend Tika makes her triumphant return to the podcast... mostly. Dustin leads the charge in Warcraft talk since he is actually playing!

Next Expansion Pondering

We are a (wo)man short tonight but that does not stop Dustin and Rich from bringing you two hours of Warcraft talk.

We start with some 7.3 ptr talk which leads us into the meat of the show where we spend the majority of our time with some Blue Sky pondering on what the next expansion for Warcraft might be.

This plus some great rabbit hole emails and a tweet or two make for a fun show.

Episode 165

Chick Car

Oh look another two and half hour show talking about all the Warcraft stuff... mostly! 

We start with some real world updates from the crew and a side discussion on what the is most "Female of Cars" and "Bad Sci Fi Roulette". We eventually progress into the Blizzard earnings call where we once again learn that Warcraft is no longer the cash cow it once was. 

We then cover some of the highlights from the Dev QA session that include invasion and 7.2 talk, heirloom updates and time gating.

All this plus some great emails... Warcraft on the console!? Lore talk, flying angst, removing the LFR and much more.

Finally, if you hear some clanging in the background just know that we left in Kristine's husband doing dishes because its funny... or i am lazy and did not want to edit it out for almost three hours, you decide. :)

Push the Fish

A lot of talk crammed into a 90 plus minute episode. We talk about patch 7.2.5, the trial of style and auction house dance parties while wondering why those things are more critical than housing. 

We cover a lot of additional ground from a PSA and cutting the cord advice to a universal hatred of the Goblin starting area.

Neck Beards Be Gone!

April Fool's has come and gone but this episode of the Horde for Life Podcast is no joke!

Tika comes back from her Babymoon, Dustin assaults neckbeards and the unwashed while Rich admits perhaps he has a man crush on Deadpool.

We do eventually get to the World of Warcraft and of course Legion patch 7.2 and spend the better part of two hours discussing a myriad of topics ranging from fake patch notes and server hopping to the chances of player created content in Warcraft (hint - not a chance in hades).

We also haves some great emails and Rich celebrates cutting the cord from Cable/Satellite.

Happy Turley Day!

 

Facebook rants, tattoos and the Gilmore Girls start us off on this Turley Day episode (the promise is fulfilled Dustin!) but if we have not scared you off yet, we then talk World of Warcraft for the remainder of the show!

Covering all that was and was not with Blizzcon 2016, detailing the exciting news coming with future Legion patches and some really great emails from our saavy video gamer audience takes us to another two hour show.

Con Before the Storm

 

It is not often that Rich can be shut up for an entire episode but it happened this week as HFL's own Dustin Turley joined some other great podcasters from Pwncast, Azeroth Round Table, Line of Sight Gaming and Final Boss TV for the World of Podcasts 2016 panel.

Horde for Life # 153 - A World of Warcraft MMO Video Games Podcast

Episode 153

Warcraft Santa

 

 

No its not December yet we have proclaimed Tom Chilton as our Warcraft Santa!

Dustin gets a new phone, Kristine loses a cat and Rich calls Dustin... and then the entirety of the Alliance... scumbags (digging a hole Rich) Oh and HFL is now on Google Play!

Once the dust settles the crew actually talk a ton of Warcraft. Artifact leveling, world quests, rep, raiding (Ursoc one shot!) and some gameplay flaws that seem to work against those players who love playing alt characters.

The crew also touches on the question, is content coming too fast?  

But one of our main discussions tonight is Tom Chilton leaving the Warcraft team, what that means for the current game and some serious speculation on what he will be doing now. Crazy theories abound and we would love for you to chime in!

Episode 152

Panda Hate

 

Storms be damned we recorded 152!

Yes it was a long time coming, but it has been a busy start to the fall so cut us some slack :)

Rich tries to explain away his excuses for not playing, Kristine is raiding again and Dustin had a child!

Once we finally get rolling, we learn in this episode that the entire HFL crew has emotions ranging from dislike to deep seeded hatred for the Panda as a playable character, who knew?

Lots going on in this episode, so give it a listen!

Legion Launch... for some of us!

 

This was a fun episode, mainly because Rich got carried for nearly the entire 2 hours. While we deftly and definitely went down many rabbit holes (apologies to both California and Oregon residents!) we did manage to cover a lot of ground with respect to what may very well go down as the best Warcraft expansion of all time.

We also - as promised - fulfilled a listener request to do an MMO 6 pack segment with the magic developer wand.

Give it a listen and tell us what you think!

Horde for Life # 150 - A World of Warcraft MMO Video Games Podcast

Episode 150

Lock Tight Ogres

 

 

We were super excited to be joined by Brian Black aka Rho from the Realm Maintenance podcast and were not let down one bit.

This 2.5 hour opus tackled the good, bad and ugly that the Legion Invasion events have brought with it. Additional topics cover a range of issues from PvP to the upcoming Karazhan content and a large dose of Warcraft Legion Lore.

As a side note, this podcast was recording exactly one day before Blizzard's Friday 8.19 hot fix (# 3) that appears to have finally mitigated a lot of the XP issues we were seeing with the invasions.

Episode 149

Transmog Six Pack

 

Tonight's show was recorded just before the Legion Invasion event (which we will cover in great detail on episode 150) which is just as well because we are able to FINALLY complete our much belated Transmog Six Pack! 

We have also included links to the very gear we discuss in the show notes so head over to hordeforlife.com for clickable hyperlinks!

All this plus oddly enough some home improvement stories... and what do Skeletor and Mike Tyson have in common? hmmm, only on Horde for Life!

Horde for Life # 148 - A World of Warcraft MMO Games Podcast

Episode 148

Legion Pre-Patch Blues

 

Lots of good discussion on episode 148, so much so that we are not able to fit it all in. Apologies in advance for teasing and not delivering the transmog MMO six pack, but it will come fast and furious on episode 149.

That said we get to a lot tonight, starting with Dustin abusing the host... or maybe the host is trolling Dustin, one can never tell! When things finally get serious we settle down to share our angst for CRZ in capital cities, a move that Blizzard is finally backing off of.

But we spend most of the evening detailing all you want to know about the pre-patch, the good bad and ugly... hint, do not get too used to those artifact weapons as they may go the way of garrisons.

Additionally we praise the modding community as unheralded heroes even as Rich struggles with updates to over 70 mods, talk PvP and Dustin tells us why Pokemon GO is the greatest mobile game ever launched.

Be sure to listen to the outtakes at the end of show! Two and a half hours... are you not entertained!

Episode 145

Get Your OW out of my WoW!

 

It is the dynamic duo tonight as the lovely Tika is honeymooning in Hawaii and sipping fancy drinks with fruit in them.

Rich is bitten by the Overwatch bug and braces for the inevitable emails that will follow. But that does not stop us from talking about the launch and the characters as we have our first Overwatch MMO six pack!

Back on the Warcraft front for the majority of the show we cover favorite zones of our listeners, the launch of the Warcraft movie, the evolution of "Wrath Babies" and we have a spirited conversation on the end game heavy nature of WoW.

Legion - The Beginning of the End?

 

We open the show with some Memorial Day and Tika's upcoming Hawaii honeymoon discussion and some brief banter on Doom and Overwatch. However the core of this weeks episode surrounds the dramatic and game changing events that occur in the opening act of the Legion expansion.

The land of Azeroth will never be the same!

While we do our best to isolate the spoilers, if you DO NOT want to know this information (all of which you will discover in the opening hour of the expansion) then please avoid the discussions from the 39m30s mark until the 50m45s mark of the podcast.

Episode 140

Gold Garrison Gone

 

 

Tonight we clock in at over 2 hours covering various topics. We start with the click bait news that gold is going bye bye in Warcraft 7.0 - in actuality gold is leaving our garrisons which is still sad news.

We go on to discuss the vast game play change that is expected with Legion, Dustin's never ending Judgement quest finally ending, Warcraft movie and Legion launch timing and some great emails including the discussion of a betrayal system in the game.

Then the crowning jewel of the episode, we bring back the MMO 6 pack where we discuss the top 6 most annoying encounters in WoW.

Oh and we also go off the rails talking about fitness tracker woes and fantasy... baseball.

A jam packed two hours that is at least half Warcraft discussion! We cover Tika's foray into PvP while also admonishing her having never seen The Godfather!

Dustin talks home improvements, we discuss the lucky rabbit's foot legend, lamenting old school raid design with mechanics such as the BWL suppression room and bad karma for Dustin!

A belated power ball discussion and some really great emails including a new idea... housing in WoW... round out our show... oh yeah and I killed Abe Vigoda!

Episode 136

Legion Class Changes - Part 2 (aka Druid Love)

 

We could have also called this episode "The Druid Force Awakens" as returns to the show to defend Dustin's wanton destruction of the class!

 

We start with some great Star Wars discussion, No Spoilers (no really!) and then progress to discuss some Warcraft news before launching headlong into part two of our belated Legion class discussions.

 

This is our last show of the year due to the holidays, but we made it a long one so we hope you both enjoy it and have a happy and safe holiday season. We will be back in January.

Much love from the HFL Crew, our listeners are amazing.

Episode 134

Blizzcon 2015 Wrap and Dev Interview

 

 

Remember the good old days of 3 hour HFL podcast epics? Well if those were good memories you will love episode 134 clocking in at just under 3 hours. 

We discuss all things Blizzcon and Legion. What did we learn, what do we like and what do we not like. We break down all the insanity that is Blizzcon 2015 and offer some insights into why Artifact weapons and Class Halls might not be the best parts of Warcraft's next expansion.

All this plus a great interview with Blizzard Lead Game Narrative Designer, Mr. Dave Kosak.

Episode 132

Killer Filler

 

As we begin our long wait for Legions, we embark on a series of episodes that allow us to unleash our backlog of fun filler topics and emails. Tonight we start with discussion on the recently data mined Lost Garrison Designs and why Blizzard rarely looks back on their content. What occupies and will occupy your time during the pre-expansion content drought? We talk about our plans and want to hear yours!

Additionally, our cast believes that gameplay is a NOT a requirement for all content and we have a vibrant discussion on why.

But the heart of our show is a killer filler segment where we discussion the top 10 things about WoW that you did not know! This was a great topic and look for many more if you too find them enjoyable. Let us know!

And do not forget to checkout the outtakes at the end of the show to find out about Rich's wedding gift to Dustin, listen to our discussion on technobabble in movies and learn all about "Glamping".

Horde for Life # 131 - A World of Warcraft MMO Video Games Podcast

Episode 131

Signal Lost

 

If you ever wanted a peak behind the HFL curtain, this is your show. We were plagued with some irritating to us – but surely funny to you – technical glitches. Frankly I am surprised that the whole episodes did not crash and burn but through all the chaos though we had some great conversation. We start with a fun and informative discussion on patch 6.2.2 and flying in Draenor (at least 2/3 of the crew). We then progress into some time walking discussions and needed improvements. Badges are back, you happy about that?

Additionally we cover good PvP ground, discuss if Warlords was a too raid heavy expansion, pine for class change mechanics and Dustin lets his geek flag fly when he breaks out his Dungeon Master Guide reference!

All in all a fun show and note that this is the LAST SHOW with Dustin as a bachelor!

Horde for Life # 130 - A World of Warcraft MMO Video Games Podcast

Episode 130

Legion Prediction Show

 

Not only does this 2 plus hour episode feature 15 great and not so great predictions for the next World of Warcraft expansion, but we also manage to cover a myriad of topics ranging from Legion features like Artifact weapons and class order halls to not so Warcraft themed topics such as State Fairs and the differences between cat and dog people!

 

Along the way we also find ourselves having a serious and heartfelt discussion on Blizzard developer communications in a harsh and annonymous environment and social media fueled World.

 

At one point I think Dustin even forgets he is not on the Darkmoon Herald and gives us his own “sideshow of suck” ™.

 

Enjoy and have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend!

Horde for Life # 128 - A World of Warcraft MMO Games Podcast

Episode 128

Bait and Switch

 

Making up for our MIA Blue Sky last week, we have a jam packed show totaling over two and one half hours for your listening pleasure! We start with some mercenary mode details and opinions and progress into Draenor flying and token talk before really hitting the creamy center of the show, our Blue Sky segment.

Not only do we have a great Blue Sky discussion on alternative server ideas, we also spend a great deal of time outlining the possible expansion leak rumors ahead of the August 6th announcement. Even if the rumors are fake and only 1/3 of our cast believes this, then Blizzard should be listening either way because this expansion fits and would be great!

Also be sure to comment on the new shorter intro... and if you listen to the WHOLE show, you will learn which HFL member recently got his account suspended! Oh the scandal!

Episode 127

Singing Druid


We record on the heels of Comic Con 2015 and fruitlessly attempt to view the Warcraft movie trailer for discussion this week. We start the show talking about our holiday time including Dustin's trip to Big Sky country. While the movie talk will have to wait, we were able to build some great discussion on the 6.2 Corey Stockton interview where we learn that Hellfire Citadel will be the last planned content patch for Warlords. We lament the potential content drought and speculate on a potential 2015 expansion! We also give hardcore Mythic raiders some love , talk about a faction-less World of Warcraft, do a non scientific garrison gold experiment and Tika sings! 

We would also like to apologize for running too long to discuss our Blue Sky topic this week. But it will front and center in episode 128.

Warlord’s Babies

 

A jam packed 6.2 patch release show that covers a myriad of topics ranging from Timewalking to Hellfire Citadel and everything in between. Highlights include discussion on the Garrison gold and Salvage Yard nerfs and a complete failure to understand the economics and mechanics of the WoW token. We conclude the show with some NON spoiler Game of Thrones talk and do not forget to check out the outtakes that will henceforth be included at the end of every show (after the close).

Why We Cry

 

In a not so stunning reversal, Blizzard backtracks on the removal of flying and the World... of Warcraft, rejoices (well at least most of us). We talk about the announcement along with the great Draenor compromise detailing exactly how we will fly in Draenor and beyond.

Additionally, we talk about the presence and impact of the WoW token on the game world and community and read your emails.

Grounded!

 

On this episode the HFL crew as well as our audience, discuss and speculate on the shocking news that Blizzard has decided to remove the flight mechanic for all future content within the game.

While this week's episodes marks the second consecutive show with a decidely negative slant, something we apologize in advance for, we are slaves to the truth and it would be hard to spin anything positive from these developments.

The community has reacted strongly and this has not gone unnoticed by the Blizzard team. What does this mean for the game and is there any chance of a reversal?

Episode 114

No Fly Zone

This week on Horde for Life we launch into some more Garrison talk after Rich expresses his hate for Molten Core. From buildings and play styles to followers and mods we share our Garrison thoughts as our experiences grow. The crew then has a very interesting discussion on the lack of flying in Draenor including the potential harm to the game that comes from excluding our airborn activities in Draenor. We then go deep into some Blue Sky on a simple mechanic to tie the game world and content togther.

On the PVP front, we challenge why grinding is essential or a fun componenet of the game and Rich talks about the fun that was had as a guest host on the Darkmoon Herald podcast (episode 80) including what is missing from the Tarren Mill/Southshore battleground.

Episode 107

He who has no life... actually does!

Episode 107 is an epic sized show covering enough content for two shows! First we introduce Jarod Nandin who is the genius behind the cosplay hit "He who has no life" from the South Park episode "Make Love not Warcraft". It turns out that Jarod actually does have a life and was a super fun guest to have on board with us this week. After some great discussion on Jarod's cosplay past, present and future we move on to a reader suggested top 5 of our favorite Blue Sky wants and desires for the World... of Warcraft. 

Think you know everything we discussed in the top 5? You would be wrong as several curve balls are thrown and some great ideas are out there for you to consider and respond to. If you love them, hate them or have your own do not hesitate to let us know.

But believe it or not, we were not done there and that was not our biggest news as we share a strong rumor from a listener with claims to insider info on just exactly what Titan was before it's cancellation. You might just be surprised, I know we were!

Episode 106

It's Called Phototaxis!

What a jam packed show! Forgetting the fact that Dustin was all jacked up on Red Bull to the point of giving Rich a contact high and that for a moment we forget if we were recording HFL or Nitro Geek Radio, this show is overloaded with the good stuff. 

For news we cover the Elephant in the room that is the cancelation of project: Titan as well some great news for classic raid lovers. Currency changes, Warlords CE details and the potential loss of your saved character names round out the headlines before we dive into Garrisons, leveling wishes from our listeners, Dustin's love for Hellgate: London (Yeah WTF Dustin!?) and some Legendary waffling from Blizzard. 

As would be fitting for this strange episode, we close out the show with more than you ever wanted to know about moths... yes moths.

When Doves Cry

Let me go ahead and get this out of the way... yes we are a bit behind. With 2 in can and a month since our last episode, I am Jack's raging impatience (bonus points for those in the know). In any event, I can promise you that we will deliver both episodes in the next 5-7 days and you have both my sincerest apologies and commitment to slow down my travel schedule and speed up my show posting activities.

That said, enjoy this post labor day weekend episode of the Horde for Life podcast where we discuss everything from dove killing to procedural generated WoW content and a whole lot more.

Episode 104

Warcraft's Destiny

Dustin returns to the show after his fateful cabling accident just in time to have one of the larger Blue Sky segments we have ever had as we discuss the Death of the MMO genre. OK that is pretty hyperbolic but we do go into some detail on the changing MMO landscape including giving you our takes on an issue near and dear to all of us, the lack of timely content generation. We also dive headlong into speculation on what is coming and what needs to change to keep the true MMORPG's relevant as new games like Destiny start to encroach on the genre this and next generation.

And if you are interested in hearing the full story on Dustin's accident, stick around to the very end of show for all the details!

Accident’s Happen

While Tika makes her triumphant return to the show, Dustin was not so lucky. Lets just say Dustin, some cabling, a ceiling and gravity were all involved. But the show must go on as we dissect the Blizzard Q2 sub losses, discuss sand boxes and theme parks, true open world PvP, raid attunements, Warlords deficiencies and much much more.

However we soldier on with lots of news and emails starting with the loss of guild leveling in Warlords and working our way through Mike Morheim leaving Blizzard, any impact that causes to the game, our thoughts on cross faction auction houses and some really interesting and passionate emails.

Bring on the Pitchforks!

We apparently struck a nerve with our episode 97 comments and our listeners unleased a torrent of angst our way this week. Not one to dodge controversy or the occasional scolding, we take it like men (and women) as you tell us what you think of the Warlords Alpha patch notes and our initial feelings on the "dumbing down" of the game. Oh yeah... and we have Blizzcon 2014 news!

We also discuss the purchase of level 90s, a reason to get those alts to level 60 and much more including Dustin sneaking some ESO talk into the show!

We determine what profession has the most grind, the item squish impacts and lots of Warlords news.

All this plus some really great emails leading to fun discussions on the item squish, hit removal, classic raid finder, offline LFR queuing and so much more. Almost 3 hours worth of discussion, so enjoy and do not forget to vote, make your voice heard!

Hats off to our listeners this week as the feedback shows not only great passion but also incredible knowledge of the game.

But the entirety of our two and one half hour show is not expansion talk. The podcast starts with further discussion on connected realms and perhaps an alternative reason for the deployment of the technology. We also have our MMO six pack where we each list at least two "things" gone from Warcraft that we wish would come back!

The Last Expansion?

In what was one of the most enjoyable episodes we have done in a while, Kristine, Rich and Dustin cover a wide range of interesting and controversial topics.

We start off with what is easily the longest discussion of our weeks ever as served as an omen of things to come. From having fun with some truly confusion developer comments, clear signs of the daily grind being taken behind the barn and shot to discusion on the slow but comfortable descent of WoW, this all leads to one of our best Blue Sky discussions in quite some time.

Could the next expansion be the last?

In this interview we touched a range of 5.4 topics as well as a few off we are certain you will not hear anywhere else. Sit back and listen as you learn some behind the scenes origin stories on Cross Realm Zones and Connected Realms, the prospect of Blizzard selling gold to its players, great naval battles and why Warcraft is one of the few games you could actually play on a deserted island (assuming you had electricity and a SAT connection!).

"WoW A Titanic Prediction"

What a fun show we had this week. Rich's error in double booking guests actually worked out really well as Josh James and Ben Novak joined Rich and Dustin to talk about one of the single most controversial and perhaps landscape changing new items in sometime is announced by Blizzard.

Yes we speak of the in game store and if our poll at hordeforlife.com, twitter and the myriad of forums are any indication, we have just started having this conversation. Tell us your thoughts as we have some lively debate and speculation on what the store means for the game, the industry and the fanbase. Listen in as we inject our Blue Sky formula into this hot topic by talking about what could be and making both a case for and against the this real money tranaction system.

Oh and then there was this little... OK huge prediction; Rich seems to think he is rock solid 100 percent certain what Titan is, will be and how it impacts the World of Warcraft. You do not want to miss this if only to flame him if he is wrong. But you will definitely want to say you heard it first hand if he is right.

"Its All About the Numbers"

Welcome to episode 78 of the show! Tika returns from her extended vacation to share tales of travel and the Darkspear rebellion! After sharing our weeks which include abandoned farms, PvP adventures and internet usage caps we jump into a lively discussion on Blizzard's plans to "fuse" specific realms as a fix for the low population problem. Their numbers are low but does everyone share the opinion that there is a problem? And is this the best way to address it for the player or for is it all about the numbers? We ask you with a poll on hordeforlife.com.

Other discussion includes the introduction of proving grounds as an upgrade to training dummies, Blizzard expansion logic, PvP battlegroup advice (snicker), classic servers and we are asked if LFR hurts normal and heroic raiding.

All this plus more of your feedback, an MMO 3 pack... thats right 3 (but it turns into 6+) and a Food for the Gods. We clock in at two and one half hours... we hope you enjoy!

Our listeners are passionate and that certainly came through this week.
