There’s a lot of Overwatch to catch up on. Contenders Season 1 finals at Intel Extreme Masters Sydney. The Pacific Showdown that follows later in May. And all the latest happenings at Overwatch League and the 2019 World Cup has been announced. And what’s the state of the meta anyway? Thankfully shoutcaster Genome stops by again to bring us up to speed.
A fun chat with Zhiana, a great cosplayer and part of the Geek Bomb brigade, about all the latest developments in World of Warcraft. What have we been up to? What are we hoping for in 8.2 and where the story will go next? Why did Seamus make a Dark Iron Monk? All this and plenty more random Warcraftery so tune in and catch up.
From concept to finished card, we explore some of the latest arrivals in the newest set Rise of Shadows with two of Hearthstone’s game designers, Liv Breeden and Stephen Chang. Wait ’til you hear how cool their concepting tools are! That should be a game all its own…
This week I popped into the IGN studio to get face to face with Cam Shea and geek out about all the latest news around Hearthstone. We dive into the Year of the Dragon, the Specialist esports format, the Rise of Shadows announcement and the idea of a whole story threading through the year ahead. Plus how important this year’s rotation is as well as those early Hall of Fame moves.
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.
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.
Another Hearthstone focused episode as Rastakhan’s Rumble launches! Decks we’re lusting after, experiments we’re planning, and what we’re hoping for from the Rumble Run when it launches next week.
Look who it is! This week on The Scrapyard we have a hearthside chat with Ben Thompson, Creative Director of Hearthstone. With Rastakhan’s Rumble going live on December 4 Thompson was in town so Seamus got to sit down with him to talk about the game.
Genome is back to help dive deep into all things Overwatch, and we explore all the recent big events – Overwatch World Cup, new OWL teams (and their colour schemes), all the movements of Aussie players around the global scene, and Contenders S3 kicked off this week so we take a close look at what to expect there too.
