Tonight we were joined by Ashgar, Kodra, Rae and Tam as we discuss all sorts of stuff going on. We talk about the latest round of FFXIV announcements coming out of the London Fanfest. Unfortunately the announcement that we got in Vegas of the Job information coming in London... was a bit of a tease. We also talk about what we are looking forward to Tuesday when the 2.4 patch lands. I talk about my experiences with Rift Nightmare Tide launch and the fairly catastrophic server rollback that caused me to loose essentially one entire days worth of playtime and a bunch of other stuff that came with that. Tam and Kodra talk about their experiences playing Civilization Beyond Earth as a co-operative team. Finally Rae fills us in on some of the craziness that is happening in the post season League. It seems like there is a ton of "horse trading" going on as players are swapping teams left and right.
At the point of posting this podcast Sunday morning... we have now completed our Extra Life marathon as part of the Alliance of Awesome team and as a group we raised almost $2000 for the charity. Super proud of everyone that participated and tuned in to watch us go.

This week I am joined by Ashgar, Rae, Tam and Kodra. We talk about the first day of the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival and all of the interesting bits of news related to the Heavensward expansion that will be landing spring of 2015. We also talk about the upcoming 2.4 Dreams of Ice patch that should be landing shortly. Kodra and Tam have spent some time playing Borderlands the Pre-Sequel and give their thoughts on the experience so far. Finally we talk about the recent changes in League of Legends to the jungle systems, and some discussion about the Worlds Final.

Tonight myself, Rae, Tam and Kodra talk about all manner of things. Tam finds a hidden jar of Nutella, Kodra delivers a sermon on the benefits of Galaxy Trucker, Rae gushes about her new Dinosaur Hunter... and I try and keep things going along smoothly in the process. We have a long ramble about Dragon Age again, this time talking about Kodra's struggle to get into the story. He has finally "gotten off the citadel" to borrow a phrase from Mass Effect 1. We also talk about how each of us approaches the characters we play in creating a personal story behind them. We talk about my struggles with Destiny this week and finally hitting the point where I am starting to feel it is entirely too grindly. Finally we talk about what Blizzard might be announcing at Blizzcon, and we go off on a speculative tour about what genres we think they might do reviving and polishing to a shine. It was a rather packed podcast and we realistically could have probably gone on for another hour and a half.

Tonight we help launch TGEN or The Gaming and Entertainment Network as we join this awesome new podcast network. Check out http://tgenetwork.net for further information. A curious thing happened this week, all of us apart from Kodra decided to start playing Dragon Age: Origins again in anticipation of Dragon Age: Inquisition launching halfway through next month. It was as though we all realized we didn't have a clean save game file to import into that game. So there is much talking about how amazing that game really is and our experiences, as well as talking about some of the roadblocks it sets in front of players... and specifically why Kodra stopped playing the first time. Additionally we talk about our experiences downing Garuda Extreme mode and the odd compartmentalization of Final Fantasy XIV. Additionally several other games get mentioned in the mix like Crypt of the Necrodancer, so take a listen and join us as we ramble our way through another episode.
