This week is our first week covering ALL THINGS Blizzard and it was AWESOME! Hota's computer took a huge poo all over his desk and he was not able to join us for our first big episode so we were fortunate to have JR Cook the lead editor of Blizzplanet come back and hang with us the entire episode!
Starting the show, we cover our week in gaming and how both Twizz and Reb have a LOT to learn in the way of Starcraft.
We are proud to announce that the entire Blizzplanet team is going to Blizzcon! We certainly hope to see you there so make sure you're looking for the Blizzplanet shirts and say hello!
Following our week in gaming we cover a large percentage of the Developer Q & A that Blizzard had done exactly 30 minutes before we started recording so everything was still fresh in our minds!
After the Q & A we discussed more blue post news such as th xp nerf from 86-90, the drop in lesser charms of good fortune, how AND why Blizzard is introducing the "Bad Robot" pet in 5.3 and lastly how the Shaman/Druid named "Fs" got his world first back. See people, we're talking a LOT of WoW.
We give everyone who is listening to us that is WoW only a crash course on all the other games we're going to be diving more in depth with in the coming episodes! LOTS of really exciting stuff that we didn't realize was out there! So....we again, we go game by game and bring you up to speed on some of the history and current news that surrounds each game.
JR covers the WCS and all things happening with esports! Here are the links he discussed:
Dreamhack: Premiere european league, not associated with WCS but one of the best tournaments to watch.
WCS: All things WCS!
Shoutcraft: ShoutCraft is to helping build the North America tournament scene since a lot of American players are getting hosed with the WCS and Koreans being allowed to play. It's an American (north and south) league only and will be played through the month of May with a $10,000 prize pool he is fronting himself. It'll be entertaining so have that on your radar for the month of May.
Twizz covers Diablo 3 and the 1.0.8 patch that's on the PTR at the moment. We also talk about Chris Metzens appearance with Sony to release the new about Diablo 3 being on the Playstation!
Curious what "Blizzard All Stars" is? Been hearing a little more about that lately? Reb takes command and tells us all about what it is, what to expect and what it's compared to.
JR takes us through a little bit more hearthstone with the latest hearstone video starring Leroy Jenkins being right HERE.
Lastly we talk about "Titan" and what we know so far. There was actually a little bit more info leaked about it than Twizz had known about. Definitely worth a listen.
Would you like an opportunity to bring yourself up to speed on the lore of Starcraft all the way up to Heart of the Swarm? It's 5 short videos and the entire production is called "Up to speed" ...the story so far and they can be found right HERE.
They announced that Diablo 3 was coming to Playstation but we talk more about the Xbox 360 platform and how it was all handled right HERE.
We would like to thank MegaCode for his work on the "Mega Minute" in the past episodes of Twizzcast. He can be found at Healingspec.com and should be followed if you are interested in all things Holy Paladin or healing in general! Thank you Mega for what you've done for Twizzcast.
