Episode 50 – Secret Agent 00Janitor


Welcome to the Frozen Nerdz Podcast Episode 50 called Secret Agent 00Janitor!

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, March 1st, 2015. And was released on Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015.

On Today’s episode we change everything up, and introduce the new show format. We quickly cover All of the Blizzard Entertainment and General Gaming News from this past week, and then we move onto our World of Warcraft discussions. This week we talk about was Patch 6.1 enough to silence the “we have nothing to do” crowd?, Real ID required for Twitter integration, are we to the point in the game where Triple Spec is required, and is World of Warcraft too “raid centric.” But before you know it, we move onto our Blizzard Discussion topics of the week where we discuss the data-mined information on an upcoming Hearthstone expansion, and the possible reveal of a new Hero for Overwatch. Then we move over to our Community Creation part of the show were we introduce three pieces of amazing Blizzard Fanart! Next up is… the icebox, where we answer a ton of emails and questions for you the listener. If you have any questions, comments or concerns for the show, 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 50 of the Frozen Nerdz Podcast.

Blizzard Entertainment Discussion Topics:

World of Warcraft:

  1. Have the new overall changes in 6.1 improved the game enough to silence the “I have nothing to do” crowd?
  2. Real ID is required for twitter integration is it as big a deal as people are making out of it? For that matter have the selfies really gotten out of control?
  3. Since we had some changes why not ask for more should the game just have a triple spec to just get rid of any need for trainer mobs to undo a spec?
  4. Would the game benefit from backing off from the “raid Centric” model that has been driving the game lately?
