This week we bid farewell to the month of Blaugust and all the awesome experiences that the blogging community had while pulling together for it. Additionally we talk about Trash Mobs, and why we have come to call certain encounters that. We talk about some of our favorite experiences and how games could make compelling encounters that are more than just "trash".

This week the fearless Kodra is off battling ponies at GenCon, so we are holding down the fort while he is gone. On this episode I am joined by Rae, Ashgar and Tam and we talk about a whole bunch of stuff. This was a busy week in gaming from GamesCom to the Blizzard Warlords Announcement to the SOE Live convention. We try and run down the things from each that stuck out in our minds. Towards the end of the podcast we delve into playing what you love and not apologizing for it. I think this is a new mantra we should all try to live by.

This week is a bit different than our normal show. One of the awesome bloggers and podcasters in the blaugust initiative has posed her own challenge. She is trying to collect information on how World of Warcraft has effected other gamers looking for both current and former players. So this week we skipped doing our normal podcast to do a megacast in which we answer the 10 questions she has posed. The end result is a lot of nostalgia but some pretty good conversation about World of Warcraft and MMO gaming as a whole. The show went a bit longer than normal, but we wanted to push through all ten questions this week since we would be without Kodra next week as he is off to GenCon. I hope you all enjoy.

This week we talk about lots of things, the Blaugust initiative, whats going on with League of Legends, Shovel Knight, Rogue Legacy... but more importantly our return to Final Fantasy XIV and just how amazing charming that game is. The game has had a large number of extremely content dense patches since we last played, but more importantly the community is really awesome.
