VPR Cast#29: “Warhammer – Cookie Cutters Gone Wild!

Welcome to our 29th cast at mmoSmacktalk.com! Peter rejoins the podcast as we go waaaay off topic. We hit some Warhammeronline, talk about grind burn and the the lack of robust compelling features to continue WAR longterm (really for pvpers). Also, you’re in luck, we explore our culinary pleasures with a debate on Taco Bell, Del Taco, and El Pollo loco.

1st Segment: Who has what kind of character and at what level? Who’s feeling the grind burn? Ben eats El Pollo Loco. Warhammer… still compelling? Cookie cutters gone wild… where’s the true uniqueness (WAR)?

2nd Segment: Starts off attempting to wrap up the end of segment 1. El Pollo Loco takes on Taco Bell.
Vincent had mouth cancer, an abortion, …? Love to love Chevy’s salsa. Ben’s a real man, as proven by his love of pink tacos. What’s up with Norwegian food 😀 ? Paul experiences crack at Yum Yum Donuts.

3rd Segment: This segment kicks off with a little Dream Theater… not bad for a band we’ve never heard of… Paul tells a story about guns, gangsters, and the SJPD. Ryan tells a story about a petty car thief, and what it’s like to be a tiger. No games this segment.

4th Segment: Ben had a story about a refrigerator. Ben talks gibberish about Karl Marx, hot karls, pale eyed thieves… who knows. Warhammer needs to let a few double entendres fly… damn!

VPR Cast#28: “Enter… WAR Genius!”

Welcome to our 28th cast at mmoSmacktalk.com! Vince spins big cheese and brings in the cast. Ryan is late, and Peter is absent. Many topics covered in Warhammer and some darkfall discussion as well. Strap in, strap on, and learn about a WAR genius.

1st Segment: When you write a moral check, don’t be surprised if it’s denied. WoW, morale, pal, Palin, JOe the Plumber, and Paul. The warrior priest is disussed.

2nd Segment: The topic of tactics changing in combat is concluded. Ben questions things that shouldn’t be questioned. Suffice it to say, he’s lucky Ryan isn’t there. Paul… speak into the mic, son!

3rd Segment: Ryan bites into Ben. Kids, don’t listen. Too many bombs are dropped. Ben tells us about his nasty need to dual box or not play at all. The boys drop some smack on Mac. The MMO Imagineers™ get cracking again with another new idea… at least to Ryan.

4th Segment: Another long ass segment ensues. Kicks off with wrapping up Ben’s thoughts, if you can call them that :D, about WAR’s two new classes. Somehow Witch Elves rule. We review one of the latest Darkfallonline.com preview videos from the Athen’s Digital Event. Looks like the sound from the link was too loud, so we are very faint in the background. Thanks… Vince! 😀 Ben and Ryan wrap up the segment with a painfully prolonged discussion of some DFO theories on tactics, weapons, and magic.

VPR Cast#27: “The Sims go to WAR!”

Welcome to our 27th cast at mmoSmacktalk.com! Paulicus brings us in to a long diverse cast. This cast is hot, get it while you can!

1st Segment:Paul badmouths the Warhammer mail system… Ryan joins in; AND Ben’s manhood is questioned to boot. We begin reading listener comments.

2nd Segment: Listener mail/comments reading continued. We touch on buying items/gold from the mmo vendor, and or Ebay players. Ryan mentions his turn offs in WAR, such as no in game smack talk. Some of the user comments get us to discuss more Darkfallonline.

3rd Segment: Ryan slam’s the claustrophobia of WAR (he’s only level 20 though). The smacktalk imagineers™ get to work on how to make WAR pvp a tad better. Some WAR tactics are discussed… thanks to the beautiful implementation of collision detection.

4th Segment: Grab the hand rails to your mother’s basement, this segment is loooong ass! First we relive one of our favorite episodes of Crank Yankers…Batman’s nemesis 😀 Ryan follows up with some DFO scenario oriented concepts. Afterwords a beautiful discussion on Bright Wizards ensues between Vince and Bentannica.

VPR Cast#26: “About a Boy (bw)”

Welcome to our 26th cast at mmoSmacktalk.com! Encyclopedia Bentannica takes us in to a cast that covers a few topics, ranging from leveling pace to afk’ers in the Scenarios. All throughout Ben and Paul mix it up while Ryan lags and Vince puts in his dos centalvos.

***A little reminder: we cast on Wed and post on Sunday Night. This is the second week in a row that some of the content in our cast was made irrelevant by the quick fixes of the Warhammer Online team…. Damn them!

1st Segment:Ben and Paul discuss the leveling slowdown… when it hits, how it feels, and what to do about it. Further, Paul fills the group in on his latest Scenario experiment that will shock and anger you!

2nd Segment: P and V opine that Destro has the edge in pvp on our server (biatches!); Vince brings up the gold spammer issue…. what a bunch of punks.

3rd Segment: Peter, Paul, and Mary (Vince)… AND Ben wax political (Ryan lays low). If you want to avoid this topic skip to minute 5:35 on this track. Somehow politics seques into the art of Salvaging… which might make some sense given the afforementioned political topic. Ryan talks about what’s behind a server name; Ben talks BW.

4th Segment: Ben continues to kick it Bright Wizard with Vince. They cover strats from blowing shit up to holding hands.

VPR Cast#25: “Bitch, Moan, Repeat”

Welcome to our 25th cast at mmoSmacktalk.com! Producer Pete returns and Ryan leads us into a cast of bitching and moaning.

Segment 1 – 4: No individual annotations this time. Pick a segment and enjoy the bitch fest. Seriously… we thought it was time to hammer Warhammer. So far it’s had a free pass; no longer. While we play Order, you will be listening to Destruction.

*One of the points we pick at is the mini game (EULA box) on the character selection screen… this has been changed since the cast on Wednesday, and is now a bit more palatable. It’s as if they read our minds… mine at any rate.

VPR-B #24: “THAC0”

Welcome to our 24th cast at mmoSmacktalk.com! Minus Produce Pete we rock on with a delicious cast brought in by Paulicus Rex with Commander Vince spinning big cheese. In each segment we offer a tip topped by our regular sauce. This cast is almost exclusively Warhammer Online talk.

1st Segment: Now that we’re full fledge in WAR we poll ourselves on which is better, our last mmo (Age of Conan) or this one… Warhammer online. Afterwards Ben proceeds to pole himself further, while we discuss our unmerciful usage of Goon Squad…. poor little muppets. Paul proffers tip#1.

2nd Segment: Paul questions Reknown rewards transparency versus Public Quest rewards. Ryan proffers tip#2. Huge argument ensues over the affects of Willpower, Intelligence, and THAC0.

3rd Segment: Paul jumps right on top of tip#3… we wonder if normally hops on tip so eagerly. 😀 Dr. Paul also divulges phase one of a multipart plan addressing “how to get your wife to play mmos”.

4th Segment: The best way to grow weed, AND tip#4. Ben breaks down crafting/harvesting. The concept of Power PQ’ing is presented.

VPB Cast #23: “For the Love of WAR”

Welcome to our 23rd cast at mmoSmacktalk.com! Ryan is absent this week, but that’s not a problem. Thanks to the love known as WarhammerOnline we missed this week’s cast date (we always cast on Wednesdays), BUT it was well worth it! Not only did we have a blast, but we have loads to talk about. So dive in and listen up. Share your thoughts in our comments section.

1st Segment: We delve right into Warhammer. We have been playing Open Beta for a week, and we go right into discussing Character stats, abilities, skills, spells, etc.

2nd Segment: In this Seg-Seg, we discuss standard Quests, Public Quests, and influence you get from Publick Quests
and the influence rewards.

3rd Segment: We jump right into Warhammer PVP, the gear and EXP you can get in PVP, the PVP scenarios (battlegrounds),
and the “renown” points you attain while PVPing and their respective rewards…

4th Segment: A little reminiscing from back in the 80’s about nintendo, and how we only had a couple games to play; PLUS we continue right on with the PVP and RVR discussion. We compare Warhammer to DAOC RVR,and discuss how in depth Warhammer goes with RVR zones, keeps, etc.

Welcome to our 22nd cast at mmoSmacktalk.com!
This week we are back with a vengeance. Last week’s failure to communicate has been snufT. Prep thine ears for the most sensual DFO (darkfallonline)analysis you’ve ever been graced to hear, and enjoy the aural foreplay as we delve into more WAR (warhammeronline).

1st Segment: Darkfall Darkfall Darkfall. We review the Darkfall team’s latest in game footage video release.

3rd Segment: Hey Mom Hey Mom, my Ben is back! Benevolent Bentanica shares his perspective of the first 6 levels of his WarhammerOnline experience.

Ryan’s WAR Preview (levels 1-9)

Guys, during the Preview Weekend I had the opportunity to level 2 characters: the first was a RunePriest (lvl 9), and the second was a Witch Hunter (lvl 6).  I had a lot of fun and learned tons.  I can’t really say how much you’ll learn from this cast as I conduct it in a very casual way, jumping from topic to topic as they come to me.

Let me know what you think, or if you have any specific questions.  We’ll try to address them in the next VPR-B cast.
