Our perennial host Mathew is MIA this week, but the show must go on. In gaming we’ve got impressions of the first wing of the Hearthstone expansion, Curse of Naxxramas. Warren spent some time with the Heroes of the Storm alpha, the Destiny beta and talks a bit about features in the latest Warframe update. Ian talks about the great cross-platform Spaceteam and Matt finishes the AC4 storyline. In news we talk about new League of Legends banning methods, SNES The Lion King, changes to the Valve controller and the game Screencheat.
Because we feel like it, we unveil our personal hip hop DJ names and discuss the ‘top eight hip hop games’ of all time. Matt plays Monument Valley live on the show while we discuss the amazing Pathfinder campaign that we ran this past weekend. Tons of other gaming this week includes Vessel, Worms, MTG2014, Ingress, AC4 and Edge of Space. Corey also attended some prerelease events for the M15 core set for Magic: The Gathering. We touch on some MOBA news including Dota, League of Legends and the upcoming Gigantic. Finally, Warren fills us in on the next Warframe update.
We’ve got Hearthstone on our minds again this week as Corey and Matt square off against each other live as we record.

We pass around NES Remix 2 as we record this week’s show. Andrew’s been back into AC4 and also gives us his Destiny alpha impressions. Corey and Matt are still heavy into Hearthstone and Warren talks about a new Draven skin in League of Legends, the Resogun ship editor and Clash of Clans. In news Oculus Rift hires some new employees and it’s time for the annual Steam Summer Sale.
We’re still talking Hearthstone and some controversy at DreamHack. Ian gave PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale a try but he and the rest of the team agreed that it lacks a lot of what makes Smash Bros. so great. Warren’s back into AC4 and played some new stuff including Dawngate and the Destiny alpha. Matt’s been into Hearthstone and had a great arena run. Finally, Mat’s still playing League of Legends, Wolfenstein: The New Order and Castle Crashers.
It’s E3 time again and we discuss the press conferences from Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo, the exclusive games for each console as well as multiplatform titles.
We play Mario Kart 8 live on Andrew’s big screen and take a drive down the Rainbow Road of memories with the entire series. A few of the other games on tap this week include Wolfenstein: The New Order, Hearthstone, MLB 14: The Show and Batman Arkham Origins.
