Our Weekly Top 5:

Top 5 Saltiest 7.1 Q&A responses

5.) rng so random is random ! You are so funny , in 40 some hours i become unsubbed and it will not be random
4.)”Everything is fine, it’s the community’s fault.” I saved you an hour if you were thinking of watching it.
3.) Pretty demoralized. they pretty much denied most of the major problems with the expansion right now. i was really looking forward to this expansion becoming as good as it should be.
2.) The entire time I watched that horrible Q&A I’m just thinking, “God this idiot is in charge now. . . “.

Overwatch News Banner

The Overwatch Halloween Terror is upon us! This past week Blizzard rolled out it’s latest Overwatch event which not only features new skins, icons, and more, but also has a PVE style map where four players go up against Omnic Zombies in a fight to the death. Similar to the Zombie style events within Call of Duty, you keep destroying waves and mini bosses as more and more zombies come towards you! You can check out everything with that event and more here.

But wait… THERE IS MORE! In the theme of Halloween, Blizzard has also released a Junkrat Halloween themed digital comic! You can check out Junkenstein here!

And just like that, the Diablo Season 7 has come to a close, but don’t worry, Season 8 is already upon us! With this new season, we can expect new cosmetic rewards, new journey rewards, and seasonal conquests. If you are interested in finding out more about all of these aspects of the new season, you can check out the First Look post here!

This week’s World of Warcraft discussion topics:

1.) Legion Q&A. Official Announcement. Recap.
2.) Return to Karazhan (Patch 7.1) is coming October 25th!

Blizzard Arcade Coverage Banner

Each week we pick a game from the endless library of the Blizzard Arcade to test them out and help the listeners find some awesome stupidly fun games.

Game:  Food Chain v0.15
Type: Survival
Creator: Catastrophic
Details: Step into the food chain, a game where you devour helpless animals to gain strength to try and survive the night. Watch out for your opponents as they will also be gaining in strength. At the start of this game you select the type of creature you would like to play as, after you have selected your creature you work to raise its level by eating cows goats and other small tasty creatures.  As your level goes up you gain abilities that you will need to survive the night.  Certainly has a challenge aspect to it however the flow of the game is not deliberately explained to you as you get started and the lack of AI players makes for a less fun game. Not the worst by any stretch and is definitely worth a play through.
