Episode 01: Testing, testing... Jan. 21st, 2015

Typing is boring! Talking is awesome!
Welcome to our new podcast, a bi-weekly look at what we're working on, what we're playing, and anything else that comes to mind.

It's a test first episode, meaning we like it, but realize a few things still need polish. Have a listen and then come talk to us here. Then we'll talk more and the circle will roll on.

That was actually really entertaining and informative at the same time.

Maybe I'm just easy to please but I really don't have much in the way of complaints about it and I hope you guys continue to do these into the future.

If I had one suggestion or request to make, it would be to maybe have you guys pick a new PC game to 'review' each session from the indie/small dev pool of games out there. I'm always interested to hear how other developers view and critique games that aren't their own. There are probably time constraints on that kind of thing though. I know you guys are busy.

Anyway. I look forward to the next one!
If you want a different perspective, stand on your head.

Hehe.

Yes, you did. I'm not clear when it is dropping though, given the uncertainty about the date the Podcast was recorded versus aired.

Anyway, I say it is going to be a LOA! I would be very surprised if it is a Horde Zuul...

Than be prepared for a surprise... Since there are already zuul only items in the game, and Mecron has stated loa are pit 2 material... All things point to zuul.

So, if it is going to be a new Zuul character, what will it end up being? A Zuul female? Seems like it might be similar in playstyle to the Merc.

Female are definitely not that intelligent. Most likely, a horde male.

How will that differentiate from the Shep though? I'm not very up to speed on the lore, but biologically that Zuul male would be similar to the Shep, right? In other words, we could expect similar stat gain, move/hunger stats, but probably lower tech and higher psionic skills. Unless they're just going to give us a minor Zuul Lord to work with haha. A Zuul female would probably end up as a ravenous, harder hitting but squishier/dumber version of the Merc, I'd imagine.

Again, I'm not really up to speed on the lore, haha. What would the motivation of a Horde Zuul to find Tamiko? As I understand it, they tend to value researchers/scientists for the sake of mental assimilation so I'm guessing he'd want to stripmine her mind? Or maybe he'd be a rival of our buddy down on floor 40 and be trying to make a power play?

I don't want to give away too much.

One more hint: beyond the differences between Prester and Horde breeds, fans should know this - there's more than one Zuul Horde.

It would not be the first time I've guessed wrong. :)

If its a Fem Zuul it could easily be from one of the other Hoards coming to find TamTam. its not like
Zuul have used each other to kill each other before, this wouldn't be much different.

the Trick is now, which of the Hoard Fem Zuul is the Smexiest....mh Sirens or Krakens :D
