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

Episode 59

The "Do Over" Marathon

The week started out in the worst possible way as the original episode 59 became the first official HFL lost episode. However we recovered quickly from the 16 hour failed attempt at hard drive resurrection to record this "do over" marathon episode that approaches 3 hours in length.

We obviously cover all your awesome feedback but also dive deep into some blue posts, discuss alt viability in Mists, tackle the specialness of legendary items and detail some pet battle improvements. If that were not enough, Dustin tells why - in great detail - why The Hobbit in glorious 48 frame 3D is amazing and a must see (do not worry no spoilers).

And to close out the show we ask you, what do Velco, outer space billiards, Gabe Newell, the Lich King and TRON all have in common? They are the subject of our off the rails MMO six pack of wild and crazy gift ideas. 

This one is long but not to be missed... really.

HFL Special # 1

I was fortunate enough to guest on the Realm Maintenance podcast for December 11th. Unfortunately a large portion of that interview and great discussion was left on the cutting room floor because I talk too much!  Lucky for you (or unlucky depending on your view) Horde for Life laughs at hour long shows and calls them "brief".

So have a listen as Rho and myself discuss patch 5.1, an MMO six pack of sorts, pet battles, WoW podcasting and the future leader of the Horde... hint, we do not agree :)

Episode 57

90 versus 400

The HFL crew licks its wounds from the anti Raid Finder crowd. But we take it in stride in the spirit of the holiday. Lots of feedback, pet battle talk and Rich weighs in on getting to 90 before collecting 400 pets. All this plus a fun MMO Six Pack, Food for the Gods and of course - as always - your amazing feedback.

This podcast should be named Montana Dentistry... stick around until the end to find out why.

Episode 56

Raider Rage!

The Horde for Life crew goes on the defensive as the raiding contingent of our listening audience demands to be heard! Is the Raid Finder a requirement for end game raiding? Is Blizzard forcing you into this casual tool due to bad gear itemization? We tell you our thoughts and you guys definitely do not hold back.

All this plus a fun MMO Six Pack, Food for the Gods and of course - as always - your amazing feedback.

Episode 54

You are not prepared... again!

We talked patch 5.1, the potential rise of Black Temple and of course all things panda. Rich swore before the show started that episode 54 would be under 90 minutes long... almost two and one half hours later we have another epic size podcast. Food for the Gods, an MMO Six Pack that addressed an often overlooked aspect of the game and your feedback round out this weeks effort.

But let us not forget the Twizzcast secret word is buried in here somewhere!

Episode 50

Coming off our three hour epic in HFL 49, we let off the gas to the tune of just over two hours (not sure when we actually did a one hour show as planned).

But what a fun show it was with some amazing feedback and questions from our listeners, detailed discussion on the Mists of Pandaria cinematic, it’s tone and what it says about the games future. Additionally we talk real money transactions and cover some very cool “what if” mechanics and features sent in from our audience.

All this plus our MMO 6 pack and Food for the Gods.

Episode 48

This episode goes down in the annals of Horde for Life history for two reasons. First the obvious, Blizzard reports 1.1 millions subs lost in the 3 months that make up Q2 2012 and secondly because we were forced to re-record the entire podcast due to technical gremlins. Join me as Ron Loupe aka Darth Nerd pinch hits as we talk about the impact of this news along with our MMO 6 Pack and Food for the Gods.
