Mashcast #165: A Little Trash Talk Never Hurt Anyone
Trash talk, Overwatch NOT being free-2-play, Assassins Creed Syndicate sales, Halo 5 microtransactions, and more....
Jarret is absent this week and Nick takes over along with Jeremy from WoW! Talk! The duo starts off talking about Nintendo’s new Miitomo mobile game along with Nintendo’s profits (which are looking good). Batman Arkham Knight is back on Steam, but you’ll need 12 GB of RAM to play it. Can HALO V turn HALO into an eSport? Part of the DMCA is overturned to allow some old games to be legally playable once again. Also, Quantic Dream announces Detroit, No Man’s Sky gets a release month, CCP sells White Wolf, Facebook will address aggressive game invites, and Quake Live is F2P no longer. All this and more on this week’s Mashcast!
Host of WoW! Talk! and The Tauren & The Goblin. Sometimes known as the Video Games Public Defender. Wants to play more Destiny and Marvel Heroes but WoW is all-consuming. Decent F2P Hearthstone player. Sad that he lost the Wii that had Wrecking Crew on it. Would be happy if the only game ever made was M.U.L.E. Gragtharr on Skywall-US. Garresque on Ravencrest-US.
Jeremy handles assets for the writing team and co-hosts the WoW! Talk! Podcast. When he isn't busy reading up on things related to, or raiding as a rogue on WoW, he's busy playing Super Metroid and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night over and over. He currently looks forward to when Samus and Alucard both have a new 2D side-scrolling adventure to burn through. He may be waiting a while, though.
Some raiding chit-chat and then we talk about the news.
Nick and Katie react and discuss the news about Blizzard's toxic culture.
The squad talks about some of the side quests in the game including the ones with the husks. SO MANY DAMN HUSKS!
This week, we recap events concerning the allegations of discrimination and sexism against Activision Blizzard.
