We couldn't ask for better timing! BlizzCon 2023 for our 80th Episode. We talk about all of the information we learned, give our opinions on the announcements, and navigate our way through a potentially disrupting topic.
We're joined this week by special guest (and JB's son), Captain Energon! The Microsoft acquisition of Activision Blizzard is final. The deal is done. Is it a deal with the devil? Or a dance with an angel? Speaking of demons, the Diablo crossover with Overwatch is FIRE! We talk about our opinions on the Halloween event, the Microsoft deal, rant about Blizzard's predatory shop practices, and listen attentively as Triumphy tries to get a refund.
Season 6 of Overwatch 2 is out and brings with it a new hero, a new F2P co-op mode, and the first drop of story missions: Invasion! JB, Umphy, and Jazz talk about how they're feeling about the game, their experiences with the content so far, and what they hope for the future.
JB lets his grouchy old man out but tries to keep him on the chain. He talks about his discouragement with Overwatch as Umphy and Jazz bring understanding and perspective.
We didn't want to see, hear, or speak the evil of Blizzard's recent announcement regarding the cancellation of PVE mode. All of us on the show are pretty ticked. We discuss the decision, what it means, and vent about it. Is this the nail in the coffin for playing Overwatch? Listen and find out!
Happy New Year! We come into 2023 swinging! This episode's topics include some WoW opinions and experiences, tips for new players, Chris Metzen's return to Blizzard, and the new Olympus event starting on January 5th. We discuss how to handle multiple losses along with helping out your team without being a jerk. Stick around for the after show to listen to Dave and JB go over their experiences with purchasing pre-made systems.
