The Drop Command Podcast – Episode 3

Finally, after many scheduling conflicts due to busy lives outside of the game, we return to deliver a proper episode. We make up for lost time by talking about the new player experience with Lindsay (aka Natalya Kontarsky), and then follow that up with an in-depth discussion on the state of the game, weapon balancing, proposed changes, the upcoming conversion to 12v12 and a whole lot more.

I hope you brought a lunch!


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.”
