Tonight I am joined by Ashgar, Kodra and Tam as we ramble along about various gaming tidbits. Ashgar having moved across country, is a real team player for somehow managing to string together both internet and a machine to record from all in time to join us. Kodra and I dig into a length conversation about his recent return to Magic the Gathering Online, and the fact that I am dipping my toes into it as well. Tam joins us after a long day at an Infinity Minatures tournament, and talks about the experiences and battles of the day. Ash having spent the week moving, did not have a lot of gameplay but did talk a bit about replaying Final Fantasy X on the vita.
Together we discuss the happenings of Blizzcon and the announcement of the first brand new IP in 17 years... Overwatch. Kodra and I are cautiously optimistic and looking forward to it. Tam and Ash are mostly just cautious. All of us agree that it looks interesting. Another happening of Blizzcon, the announcement of the Gnomes vs Goblins expansion for Hearthstone serves as a segway into our frustrations with the one dimensional nature of Gnomes in the Warcraft franchise. Can't being short and smart also be awesome? Do they have to always remain a running gag? Once again we manage to spend an hour and a half delving into these topics and bringing them to you our listeners.
