Horde for Life # 114 - A World of Warcraft MMO Games Podcast

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 109

All In

Episode 109 marks the return of Dustin from his one episode absence and Rich's "for reals" return to the game as evidenced by his $400+ dollar spending spree on character services! From there we eclipse the 2 hour mark once again discussing everything from 6.0 impressions, Blizzards near guarantee of a 20th anniversary, a developers perspective on game changes, polls, PVP love, a prediction and a mea culpa as Rich offers his apologies to the CRZ gods.

Oh an we are told our podcast should be banned... no really, the best email ever?

Episode 108

Blue Treats!

Episode 108 is short on Alliance representation as Dustin is MIA this week but that does not stop us from going well over two hours talking about all the goodness that is patch 6.0. From the stat squish to crafting changes we go in depth with all the details on this very upbeat episode.

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.

Episode 105

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!

Episode 103

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.

Episode 102

Treeless Podcast

Tika is out traveling this week so episode 102 lacks the balance only our favorite tree can provide. 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.

Warcraft Mr. Garrisons... wait what?

We follow up our nearly 3 hour episode 100 with another 2 plus hour show (Dustin says do not get used to it) where we talk about the Warlords Alpha and a ton of Garrison discussion. Has Rich started to turn in favor of this NON HOUSING feature? You decide! All this plus a ton of great emails.

Episode 98

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!

Episode 97

No Keyboard Needed

The full HFL crew is back this week as we talk about the Warlord alpha patch notes and the controversy and angst they have casused. Is this game becoming too easy? Has the accessibility net been cast too wide? These are just some of the discussions we take on this week along with your emails and our game keys winner.

Flying Solo

It is April Fools but the joke is on me as I look around and the HFL crew is no where to be found! So getting back to the roots of the Horde for Life podcast, I am doing a solo show. Tonight we will discuss the 6.0 patch notes preview (remember the date) as well as topics ranging from no fly zones in Warlords, classic servers, the inherit overwhelming nature of the game and our faith and confidence that the incoming healing changes will be "just right".

Episode 93

Two Warmongering Apes and a Tree!

Despite being a bit of slow week in Azeroth, Blizzard managed to surprise most with their Q4 financial report showing that the rumors of their demise are in fact greatly exaggerated. 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!

Lore and Gameplay Sitting in a Tree

Lots going on in episode 92, including the accusation that Dustin is the anti-good luck charm to sports and Tika gets her one episode ban lifted from the show! We determine what profession has the most grind, the item squish impacts and lots of Warlords news. But our centerpiece conversation dives deep into opinions on when and if lore can be sacrificed in the name of gameplay.

A new year is upon us and it is time for our year end wrap up show. Not only will we cover many Warcraft questions, likes and dislikes from the year that was, but it is also time to look foward and discuss what we want and hope to see in 2014. But this nearly a 3 hour show... what else can we discuss? How about we finalize our HFL Crusade. Done. Give it a listen and tell us what you think.
