Episode 60 – Fifty Shades of Green

Welcome to the Frozen Nerdz Podcast Episode 60 titled Fifty Shades of Green!

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.

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 covering Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, Diablo and World of Warcraft news. Then we drop a basic campfire and start our World of Warcraft discussion! This week we talk about garrisons in future expansions, is the Warcraft Story-line too derailed?, and discipline for hacked accounts. Then we switch things up and move onto the StarCade! This week we cover a Blizzard Arcade Free to Play game called Push Football! Then we jump into our Blizzard Entertainment discussions where we talk about Heroes of the Storm and the announcement of two upcoming Heroes!
