Nick is here for a short episode since real life prevented a proper episode. First, Nick talks about his and Katie’s recent appearance on Live, Laugh, Lore #30, so go check that out! Then, he talks about Hearthstone Mercenaries, and how he can’t stop playing it but he doesn’t know why. They he gets into how Hearthstone has managed to introduce new characters and have them fit within the Warcraft lore and compares that to how WoW has done introducing Yrel and Zappy Boi, usually introducing a character and then leaving them behind after the expansion.

Nick Zielenkievicz

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.

Katie Grace

Katie is a long time gamer who has fallen in love with multiple genres. She started young by playing Nintendo 64, Spyro, and Blizzard games such as Warcraft II with family, then eventually moved into playing games in both my leisure time and as a occupation. She loves being immersed in different universes and exploring the characters that live in them, as well as just playing games for a good time.
