Is Chris Metzen’s return to Blizzard good for WoW?
59:49Join us as we discuss the surprising news that Blizzard OG Chris Metzen is returning to the company to oversee the Warcraft universe. Will he drag WoW back to what it was or push it forward into the new territories it's been exploring in the last few expansions? Also, how the recent controversial decisions by Unity may affect Hearthstone which uses the game engine, our enjoyment of the Turbulent Timeways events in WoW, and what games reinvented themselves successfully…and which did not.
Our love/hate relationship with Diablo
1:02:13Join us as we discuss how Diablo Immortal is the Diablo MMO we all wanted if it weren’t for the monetization and rapid seasons rollouts, how Hearthstone’s latest mini-set release is really just The Great Muppet Caper with Yogg-Saron (and we mean that in the best way possible), and how Wrath Classic’s new Titan Rune dungeons could have been the template for how WoW was developed. Plus, our favorite gaming snacks.

The progress rollback problem of Diablo 4 Seasons
57:29Join us as we discuss how rerolling new characters for Diablo 4 Season 1 feels like a setback given the story-driven nature of the early game, how much we’re loving the new Anomalies in Hearthstone Battlegrounds Season 5, and what it could mean if WoW patch 10.2 lands about the same time as BlizzCon.
Lockouts, restrictions, and ghost talk on WoW Classic Hardcore servers

Are Diablo 3-style Seasons working for Diablo 4?
1:00:50Join us as we discuss how Blizzard has been applying systems and features from Diablo 3 to Diablo 4 as well as the other way around, the pros and cons of Diablo 4’s leveling experience running out of story, and the start of Hearthstone Battlegrounds Season 5 that adds a new element of randomness to the game.
