Welcome to the Outback, ya bloody drongos. Or maybe that should be flamin’ galahs? Thankfully, Siege’s take on bringing Aussie operators and an Australian map to the game aren’t quite that cringeworthy. It rides that line soooo closely, but overall, it’s OTT grouse Aussie Straya yobo stuff – but it works.
I touch on the big, bad news out of Blizzard from last week to kick things off, then the show is a feature interview about the future of revisiting the past in WoW Classic with Countdown To Classic podcast host, Josh Corbett.
Seamus was in Melbourne for the Fortnite Summer Smash event at the Australian Open and interviewed a host of streamers, competitors and organisers about the show. Featuring Loserfruit, Valkyrae, MrFreshAsian, DrLupo, Vondle, TheSchnake, Altro47, and Mark Reidy from Tennis Australia.
Luke Lancaster, Content Manager at ReedPop (ComicCon, PAX Aus) is our awesome guest host this week, along with a Seamus having a very bad microphone day.

We’re back after the summer break (which included a literal break of a bone, so things were slower than we expected…) and this is a short and sweet catch up on what went down and just how important the year ahead seems to be for Blizzard.
PT. A demo that for a now never-to-be-made Silent Hill game that was just one hallway but freaked the hell out of everyone who ever experienced it. And then it was gone. Erased. Become Legend. So, of course, people remake it as often as they can and this time the Media Molecule game-creativity-engine Dreams is the medium of choice.
