Episode 67 – “Return of Thunderlips?”

Welcome to the Frozen Nerdz Podcast Episode 67 titled Return of Thunderlips?

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, June 28th, 2015. And was released on Tuesday June 30th 2015.

Before we start the show, we just want to give a fair warning that during the recording of the show, Kilroy was under a tornado warning so you will hear some rolling thunder and hail threw out it. But not even mother nature can stop us from recording and the show must go on!

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, Starcraft, and World of Warcraft news. But before we start this week’s discussion we present this week’s Top 10 list, Pepe Game Crossovers. Then we drop a basic campfire and start our World of Warcraft discussion! This week we discuss the release of Patch 6.2, the lore of Warlords, the longevity of this patch, the shipyards and Hellfire Citadel. But then before you know it, we are onto the StarCade! This week we cover a Blizzard Arcade game called Banshee Bloodl! Then we discuss the future of StarCraft after Legacy of the Void. Then we take a look at another amazing Blizzard Community Creation! Then we move onto the IceBox where Zach accepts the challenge and joins the conversation. 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 67 of the Frozen Nerdz Podcast.
