Note: This show was originally recorded in late July 2012.  Huge thanks to Viper (@sc2viper) for being a great sport and a terrific guest.   Sorry about the massive delay on this show, but at least we got it out before the next expac, right?

We hope you like this episode as much as we enjoyed recording it. We’ll be back with a Heart of the Swarm-centric episode very soon.

Ep 55 – A WoW & Gaming Podcast featuring Beer & Drinking

To the most kick-ass fans in gaming,

So here’s how much Vik sucks; he really can’t remember what episode 55 was about. Part of that is because it’s been so long since we recorded it and hit a wave of techinical difficulties, but part of it is also because instead of writing down notes, he just punched the keyboard a bunch of times then started trying to make ASCII drawings of Princess Peach.

So instead of a recap, how about a drinking game dedicated to this episode?
Genius idea, we agree.

Drink when..
- Hear any profanity* – drink 1
- Hear a host laugh – drink 1
- Vik messes up the English language – drink 1
- Guest laughs – drink 2
- Vik refers to himself as “drunk” – drink 2
- Logan calls someone a “kid” – drink 2
- Logan refers to needing to edit things out but leaves it in anyways – drink 3
- Vik & Logan disagree – drink 3
- Vik rants – waterfall
- Logan rants – double-fisted waterfall
- Anyone addresses Hi-Ya and an awkward pause follows – finish your beer
- Show ends – finish your beer, go next door and politely drink every beer in your neighbor’s fridge, too. (email them a link afterwards so they know what it was all about)

* hear any profanity that actually offends you – finish your white wine spritzer and go back to watching Real Housewives.

—-

If you play by these rules, e-mail us and let us know what your final score was. We’ll shout you out on the next episode, and Logan may send some swag your way. (Bonus points if you send in pics of your empties from the show).

-Viktory

(So here are the actual topics we talk about in this week’s episode:

  • Why Mel says Bears & DK’s are the tanks to beat
  • “OMG I’m main-swapping to a monk”
  • Non-combat pets Logan wants to get before MoP
  • Maxim Gamer Girls and a subsequent gender in gaming rant
  • IPL

Enjoy!

Let’s get the apologia out of the way early; this episode was edited and ready to go live a little while ago, but Vik got too tied up trying to romance space chicks in Mass Effect and didn’t write a post for it until now.

I only mention that because some of the topics in segment two are clearly over-shadowed by the massive amounts of beta news we got in the last 10 days. Regardless, the comedy in Segments 1 & 3 is so evergreen you can hang it from your rear-view mirror and just breathe in the awesomeness every time you return to your automobile.

Our guest this week is the always-entertaining Anafielle from Pally Tanking super-site SacredDuty.net. You may recall her from such episodes as “Reporting for Duty” and “Dildos are your punchline“.

Mind-blowing Topics Covered in this Episode include:
- New Jedi Order novels, and how Ana & her Kindle are inseparable
- Diablo III release date, and lack of pvp at launch
- Katawa Shoujo and other Dating Sims
- WoW Scroll of Resurrection
- Hi-Ya teaches us about Dakimakura and the joys of inanimate love
- MoP Buff changes
- Something about purses or shoes or something
