Featuring: Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, and Tamrielo


Hey Folks! Tonight we are down three folks and contemplated not recording at all…  eventually deciding on the recording to save ourselves from a mega show.  The original intent was to record a fairly short show, but ultimately we ended up chatting away for the full time regardless.  Tonight we talk about Diablo IV again and some of our frustrations.  This weekend Grace got to play the game in the Open Beta so we start out with their opinions and devolve from there.  After that Tam talks a bit about his experiences with Triangle Strategy.  Finally, we talk about Adepticon and all of the news coming out of it for new miniature gaming releases.


Topics Discussed:

  • Diablo IV

    • Grace’s Opinions

    • More Frustrations

  • Triangle Strategy

    • Awful Name Great Game

  • Adepticon Reveals

    • Warhammer 40k

    • Infinity

    • Ral Partha Nostalgia
