Horde House

Howdy ya'll and welcome to The Best Little Horde House in Azeroth. Internet radio & podcasting veterans Rob Roberts and Xtofer, and their wine loving friend Grandpa bring you a weekly dose of Azeroth news and updates from an honest yet sometimes sassy perspective. Join us for our antics each week as we invite special guests to pull up a chair with us and poke a little fun at one of our past times.

We take a look back at E3 on this show broadcast live on June 17th, 2015. The Final Fantasy 7 remake sure grabbed people’s attention, but what grabbed the attention of us in studio? One big online game maker we talk a lot about had a lot to say at the PC press conference, which sure was an interesting press event. We recap the highs and the lows with special guest Allen in studio.

Diablo 3, a game we’ve talked a lot about on this show, has celebrated it’s third birthday. And to celebrate? COWS! Unless you happen to play the game on two particular platforms, that is. Also, one online game bans MANY cheaters, but allows them to come back to the game IF they beg for forgiveness on YouTube. Are people really going to create a video begging to return and then leave comments open on their YouTube videos? On this weeks show, Rob and Grandpa find out…

In this episode broadcast live on May 13th, Rob, Xtofer and Grandpa talk about the big drop in the World of Warcraft subscriber numbers. Is it really the doom and gloom that some may be making it out to be? Or could the doom and gloom be ready to hit another MMO that could soon be looking at a free to play transition? Of course, that could also be an awesome switch depending on your perspective.

On this episode of Horde House, we are joined by Sil from The Geek Card. Sil’s going to get her rant on though, as she’s a little irritates at something someone said to her? Was it YOU?? Well, let’s hope not. We talk a little bit about the big ol’ burn, as well as the week in online gaming news. Heroes of the storm appeared on ESPN2, but is that a little weird that a game that technically isn’t released yet is being shown on basic cable? Also, although it’s not a multiplayer game per se, one game that definitely spread like crazy across social media had the plug unexpectedly pulled and we have to talk about it.

Tonight we talk about a cross-platform fighting game that bridges the gap between the old and new Playstation platforms. Could a trend that allows cross-play between PS3 and PS4 continue, or is the PS3 too much on it’s way out the door?
