The SurlyCast – Episode 2

A conversational gaming podcast.

In this episode we discuss Jason’s most anticipated games of 2014, the frivolous lawsuit against The Banner Saga, Microsoft and Machinima paying for good Xbone vids, Conan’s “Clueless Gamer” payoffs, the Hearthstone open beta, Blizzard’s Heroes of the Storm, and finally why Jason backed Kingdom Come: Deliverance on Kickstarter. ALL OF THIS IN JUST OVER 60 MINUTES!


Trial By Fire – Testing, evaluating & rating the trial version of the Highlander HGN-732

Trial By Fire is an ongoing series for promoting and discussing MechWarrior Online. I created a brand new game account, one that I’ll never purchase a mech with, and I use it to play and rate the trial mechs that are made available each month.

In Episode 4 we take a look at the Highlander HGN-732. With the recent buffs (to put it lightly) to LRMs this week, the timing for this assault mech couldn’t be better.

Quick Look – Age of Decadence

Age of Decadence is a single-player RPG from Iron Tower Studios. I downloaded the public beta and filmed my first attempted play through.

Per the wiki:

“Set in a low-magic, post-apocalyptic world inspired by the fall of the Roman Empire, The Age of Decadence aims to return to the ‘golden era’ of RPGs by emphasizing choices and consequences and providing a comprehensive skill set, multiple solutions to quests, and extensive dialogue trees.”
