The cinematic for Mists of Pandaria was released last week and it inspired us to talk all about Blizzard and the World of Warcraft. Is the cinematic any good? Was the 5.0.3 release date a shot at Arenanet? What’s the lore behind the new main boss? (We spoil the new big bad if you don’t already know!) Also, we ask a fortune cookie about the game’s future, and discuss whether Pandaria can return WoW to previous heights. As well this week: SWTOR’s switch to free-to-play, Liore gibbers happily about RIFT’s housing system, and we discuss the new Mann vs. Server Machine mode in Team Fortress 2.
Due to scheduling issues this week’s cohosts found out that they were going on the show about 10 minutes before we started recording. Surprise! With me are frequent guest and professional loudmouth Vajra, and first time guest Kinch who is infamous in the Cats for coining the raid mark “squareangle”.
