destiny-warcraft-movie-poster-275

Bastards of Kingsgrave returns to movie reviews to cover one of the most controversial movies of the summer, Wacraft. Joined by Thomas (FTWard) and Zach (Alias), we consider it from a collective  Wacraft background that includes experiences from Warcraft 1/2/3 to WOW and most recently Hearthstone.

Notes: Below are the Warcraft trailer with War2 sounds and the Wacraft 1 intro that could easily be talking about the movie.

Episode 60: Hearthstone IV

Bastards of Kingsgrave’s Hearthstone crew returns to discuss the upcoming League of Explorers Adventure Mode.  We discuss all of the upcoming cards and come up with top lists for constructed, arena, and BOK’s arena game (Scorpions and Snakes). We chat about the recent Hearthstone World Championship at Blizzcon, tavern brawls, and the problems and challenges the game continues to face.

Notes: We assume everyone listening this time is familiar with the game, if you are not, check out our first two episode (the first introduces the game and the second covers arena drafting and strategy). We get into the full League of Explorers card discussion around 9 minutes in.

General top 7 list of constructed cards we came up with:

Brann Bronzbeard, Forgotten Torch, Keeper of Uldaman, Naga Sea Witch, Raven Idol, Animated Armor, Entombed

AKA “The Ice Dragon” – Amin’s favourite new TGT card

Bastards of Kingsgrave returns with the third episode in our Hearthstone series.  We discuss many of the revealed cards for the upcoming Grand Tournament expansion. We chat about our favourite classes and play styles, including which gold heroes we have or are close to achieving.

Notes: We assume everyone listening this time is familiar with the game, if you are not, check out our first two episode (the first introduces the game and the second covers arena drafting and strategy). The draft of the “paladin dragon” arena deck did not make it into the aftershow; the deck went 3-0 before we sopped playing to recording the main show.

Episode 36: Hearthstone

Amin’s favourite priest card

Bastards of Kingsgrave returns with another gaming podcast, this time covering the current gaming phenomenon that is Hearthstone, created by Blizzard. Joined by some experienced Vassals who have been playing since beta, we cover the upcoming expansion and debate the potential sexism in the game and gaming community.

Notes: This is the tournament article  we discussed. Hearthhead is the very useful website that Jerek is the site manager for.
