Episode 72 – “Heart of Gaming Part 1”


Welcome to the Frozen Nerdz Podcast Episode 72 titled Heart of Gaming Part 1!

We are a your Blizzard Entertainment discussion podcast. Each week we discuss anything that falls in between or outside those two glaciers. From talking about the games you love, the worlds you live in, AND maybe even a few you haven’t even heard of yet. Join Kilroy and Epicinsanity each week as we sit down and discuss the topics no one else is talking about as we bring you new points of view in a not so standard podcast format.

The show was recorded on Sunday August 2nd, 2015. And was released on August 4th.

On Today’s episode we quickly go over our weeks inside of video games, followed by this past week’s News inside the Blizzard Entertainment Universe. Then we have another Weekly Top 10 List. Then we are onto our discussion of the week where we discuss our Community Call to Arms from last week.

Check out FrozeNerdz.com for more information about our Call to Arms. This is an ongoing project that will only end when we no longer hear anything from YOU the listener of the show. This week we cover: What do video games mean to you?, Why did you start playing video games?, After all these years, why do you continue to play video games?, When playing a character, is that character more to you than pixels?, What drives you to play a new game (Friends, Popular, etc)?

We will cover our answers to the next 5 questions next week as well as the communities responses. Join the Call to Arms here!

Then we switch gears and head over to the StarCrade where we discuss this week’s Blizzard Arcade game called Poochy’s Island Adventure v0.1. Then onto our Blizzard Discussion topics this week where we talk about what’s coming from Gamescom this week. Then we wrap up the show by saying our weekly goodbyes. If you have any questions, comments or concerns for the show, feel free to e-mail the show at IceBox@FrozeNerdz.com. And now onto Episode 72 of the Frozen Nerdz Podcast.
