If I look tired, it’s because I’ve been physically lifting pets and throwing them to the back row for three weeks now. We’ve been testing the listener-submitted Pet Swap team for awhile, and there are a lot of opinions floating around the community already.
It’s time to hear what fellow listeners think of the team, what pets they tagged onto it, and give all the pets an official Pet Battle Crew rating!
We’re kicking off a new series this week, wherein we’ll review every class in Hearthstone, look at all their class-specific cards and tell you what we think of them. We list our favorite and least favorite cards, and debate what the absolute best card in the whole class pile is.
Up first, the classic archetypes: raging warrior swinging a battleaxe and a stoic holy priest!
It’s the 21st episode of WoW Pet Battle Crew, so crack open your favorite adult beverage and let’s have a chat about addons. Specifically, the one pet battle addon I’m confident is doing some black magic voodoo on its end to give you information about the pets you’re fighting against in PvP and in PvE.
The addon is called PetTracker, and it does a few awesome things, all focused on helping you find and capture wild pets, and defeat all pets in combat.
There are a lot of unanswered questions about the technical side of Hearthstone, such as: Will there be cross-platform play? How long will we have to wait for an Android version?
Of course, we could patiently wait for Blizzard to give us the official answers, but we’re not the patient type at The Happy Hearthstone. Instead, we brought a programmer onto this week’s show to pick his brain about what goes on behind the scenes to make these awesome features we desperately want to become a reality for Hearthstone.
Disclaimer: Most everything discussed on this episode is pure speculation. Do not take Liam’s or my thoughts as Blizzard’s. We’re just hoping to provide an interesting perspective on the features, and give you a little context so we have a better idea of what we might expect.
I am the happiest I’ve been in months–possibly years–all thanks to one man. Or what I presume to be a man. Maybe it’s better said as all thanks to one internet stranger who uses the handle Ebon.
How did Ebon make me so happy? He sent me a team comp that he’s been working with and asked for my help!
Hearthstone’s a brand new game, but it’s built on top of a rich heritage of tabletop card games, especially the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game that’s been running since 2006. Matt from the Outlandish podcast joins me this week as we talk about how Hearthstone is borrowing mechanics from its predecessors while blazing its own trail into a whole new area.
This laptop-tablet frankenstein was a fairly divisive bit of technology when it released in April, and it suffered a bad reputation from it’s underpowered RT cousin, which was released ahead of it.
This is a review of the Surface Pro, which is the model with high-end hardware and is running a full version of Windows 8—exactly the same OS that runs on desktop and laptop PCs.
A lot of early reviews took issue with some of the design choices for this unique, laptop-and-hybrid machine. But do the compromises to make this double-power machine work in both roles sabotage it or liberate?
I’ve been using the Surface Pro for 3 months now, and I’m ready to give my verdict.
What do Hunters, Warriors, Druids, Shamans, and Warlocks have in common? They’re all being featured on this week’s podcast!
Last week we looked at the hero abilities for the Rogue, Mage, Paladin, and Priest heroes in Hearthstone. Now the other five launch-day heroes get their turn in the spotlight.
Half-geek-half-jock superster Dan joins me and provides some awesome insight on the hero abilities.
Patch 5.3 is just around the corner, bringing a pile of new pets to capture, harder challenges for our little brawlers to overcome, and plenty of PvP incentives to keep us fighting.
Blizzard’s Lead Content Designer, Cory “Mumper” Stockton joins me on the show this week to talk about all the new goodies coming in patch 5.3, and to give us insight into how Blizzard builds the pets we love to throw into the gauntlet.
Today we embark on an epic two-part journey! This week, we start exploring the 9 unique hero and class abilities in Hearthstone, and talking about what we think of them.
We kick it off this week by taking a look at four classes: Rogue, Mage, Paladin, and Priest. We picked these because those are the classes that my guest, Gavin, plays in WoW. We’ll continue the fun next week and tackle the other 5, Warrior, Shaman, Druid, Hunter, and Warlock!
Note: This is not a summary of the class as a whole, or all its unique cards. We’re solely looking at the unique ability power that each class has at launch.
