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.

Countdown to Blizzcon 2015

Horde for Life # 132 - A World of Warcraft MMO Games Podcast

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!

Horde for Life # 127 - A World of Warcraft MMO Games Podcast

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.

Episode 126

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).

 

/Facepalm along with us this week but take pity, its a holiday show and Rich was on his tractor just minutes prior to recording.

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.

Episode 124

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?

Listen in and also tell us what you think! #keepwowflying

Episode 123

Occupy Azeroth

 

This week we have a jam packed nearly 2 hour show headlined by the Blizzard Q1 Financials showing a loss of almost 3 million subscribers from our beloved World of Warcraft. We take your thoughts and share our own.

We also lament on why mining in our Garrisons still sucks, detail the very cool Bonus Event System coming in patch 6.2, address the anti-LFR crowd and give you our thoughts on the gameplay albatross that Blizzard seems tied to.

All this plus your emails and we hope everyone had a great Memorial Weekend!
