Battle Bards Episode 110: Acoustic guitar

The Battle Bards are quite familiar with the power of the strummed guitar and lute, knowing that such simple instruments can bring down walls, devastate armies, and dethrone monarchs. But on their off days, acoustic guitars are simply pleasurable to hear and are sprinkled throughout many a-MMO’s soundtrack. It’s six-stringed serenity in the 110th episode of this podcast!

AggroChat #182 – Ghostly Haberdashery

Tonight we record a fairly short show at least as far as AggroChat episodes go.  We are down a Kodra because of a holiday party and a Thalen because he has officially cloned himself.  This week we welcomed a tiny Thalen spawn into the world, and as a result we are likely going to have fairly spotty attendance from him for awhile because the new boss is brutal.  This week we apparently played quite a bit of Super Mario Odyssey so we talk about the game and our feelings so far. Belghast spends some time playing Skyrim on the switch and how shocked he is about how well it works.  Grace talks a bit about the World of Warcraft 13th anniversary event, and Ash talks about his thoughts regarding Sonic Forces.  From there we delve into a discussion about Necromunda and various Warhammer 40k things.

Topics Discussed

  • Super Mario Odyssey
  • Skyrim on Switch
  • WoW Anniversary Event
  • Sonic Forces
  • Warhammer Necromunda
  • Tyranids Codex
  • Warhammer 40k Nostalgia
  • Great Games of 2017

Battle Bards Episode 109: Club Penguin

When you’ve got a club full of penguins overseen by the Mouse House itself, you know things are going to get both wacky and weird! Club Penguin may not be everyone’s go-to MMO for music, but its wide array of simplified genres certainly give the Battle Bards a lot to discuss on this week’s show.
