Warcraft, Malibros & Salute

Good Friday everyone!

Today is Friday!

Today I'd like to talk about 3 things:

The first thing is the latest World of Warcraft patch "The Thunder King".

First and foremost, for those who play WoW, did you notice that the font used for the Thunder King title on the patcher looked 'remarkably' similar to the Thundercats font?

So we're about 6ish months into the latest expansion, and we've seen a new content patch. One of the things this patch brings amount other things are new raid(s), some changes to how existing mechanics (like the farm) are used, new tier stuff and general progression.

Thoughts? I'm only 2 days into it, and not being in a raiding guild means I need to wait for Looking For Raid (LFR) to activate in a couple of weeks before I can give the new raid(s) a go.

What I have been doing is running around the new isle doing daily quests and having fun doing the new solo-dungeon loot run.

This place is very atmospheric! And I love playing with music turned up for added fun.

But what about the rest of the game? Where are we 6 months on? Well when the last expansion was released, by now I had run out of things to do and either run out of alts to level or given up altogether.

This time however, I've hardly levelled any alts, and I still have a good number of things to do on my main character. Awesome!

**********************

Next up are the Malibros!

Currently I'm listening to episode 3 and I'm definitely going to keep listening.

As with all good podcasts you can find these guys on iTunes, or http://malibros.podbean.com/.

But what about a review? Sadly guys I'm going to wait a few more episodes before writing a review, but let me promise you, as long as you can stomach the crass and crude humour, it's freaking hilarious.

Up until this point, I have to be honest, I've not found another podcast that I can listen to as regularly as I do the Malifools, sorry to everyone else who runs a podcast, but I can't lie to you.

HOWEVER these guys are just too funny! (I think that's what it is, I just don't really get the humour of the other casts, so have trouble investing in them).

Seriously, as with the Malifools, when listening to the Malibros I can't help but laugh out loud.

***************
Salute!

So we all know about this, it's the UK's largest Wargaming Convention being held at the London Excel Centre on Saturday 20th April.

As mentioned before, New Fairbank News (aka me) will be there.

But I have imposed a self ruling, my exam I've sat twice and failed twice? I have to pass it before Salute, if I don't I'm not allowed to buy any models while I'm there.
- I know, the possibility of going to a wargame convention and not buying any models: scary!

But the plan to run the interviews as planned is still go! So if you're going and you want to have a quick chat: who you are, what you do, why you play, that sort of thing would be great.

*******************

So there we go. Not much left to say, other than; Jon, if you're reading this, let me know when/of you fancy our re-record. If there's an issue with hosting etc, I've prepped myself a (free) podbean account, so would gladly host the stuff.

Anywho, take care everyone, stay safe and I'll see you breachside!

- Your friendly neighbourhood Doctor Loxley
