Episode 74 – “Heart of Gaming Part 2”

Welcome to the Frozen Nerdz Podcast Episode 74 titled Heart of Gaming Part 2.

We are a your Blizzard Entertainment and Steam Free to Play 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 16th, 2015. And was released on Tuesday August 18th, 2015.

On Today’s episode we quickly go over our weeks in video games, then we jump right into covering all of this week’s news inside the Blizzard Entertainment Universe. But before we start this week’s discussion we present this week’s Top 10 List of Why Things Delayed at Blizzard. Then we drop a basic campfire and start our World of Warcraft discussion where we discuss part two of our Community Call to Arms! But then before you know it, we are onto the StarCade! This week we cover a Blizzard Arcade game called Shenanigan Rush! If you have any questions, comments or concerns for the show, or want to join in on the conversation, feel free to email the show at IceBox@FrozeNerdz.com. Then we wrap up the show thanking those people who supported the show this week and then we say our weekly goodbyes. So sit back, relax and enjoy Episode 74 of the Frozen Nerdz Podcast.
