  1. Now that WoW Classic is out, is it worth playing if you’ve never played it before? Sometimes people have rose-tinted glasses when remembering how good a show, movie, or a game really was. So, to be more specific, for people who haven’t experienced it yet, do you think people should play World of Warcraft Classic to get the purest experience of what an MMO RPG is or is there another game that would be a better way to spend their time and why?
  2. The jig is up. I admit it, I use to hate Minecraft, and now it's part of my daily routine. As a complete and utter noob, I would like to share some of my thoughts on what's pulled me into playing. For one, how malleable the world is. Within reason, if you can think it, you can build it. As someone who likes to build things, like Heavyshelf itself (weird flex, I know, but lemme do it.) I'm finding that my playstyle is hyperfocused on architecture. So dub me the architect. I also like seeing just how different everyone else's playstyles seem to be. @Spy The humble merchant, always at work, and eager to trade. @chiggin The simple Chicken farmer. @Rembo The Renaissance man of the server, perhaps the lands Leonardo Da Vinci when it comes to building contraptions. @Azariah The willing neighbor, but he's only going to help you with something once, otherwise you need to learn how to do things on your own. @MooseGoneMad Then there's Moose, to be honest, he just seems sketchy to me. Either way, it's been a good first few days with Minecraft, and it has given me that sense of wonder that often fades away with video games when you get older. So I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has in store. Humble beginnings of my Grand Castle Moutain.

    Heavyshelf Podcast Details

    Sorry for the confusion and unreasonably long delay in response. The previous podcast episodes were on a computer that was in need of repair so the audio files couldn't be accessed until recently. All of the previous podcasts will start to trickle onto iTunes and YouTube over the next coming days. We'll also update the details on the events calendar soon.

    Neat Spells/Abilities in Games?

    I was just thinking of this mixed with Spy's suggestion. The ability would be invisibility and you could either use it with limitations (lower mana) to sneak up on enemies, but you have higher health to deal with them, OR trade of health, and risk it, but if you made the right call you have enough invisibility to clear the entire level or area without encountering anyone. The kicker would be that if you do that once, you wouldn't be able to get up to full health again for the remainder of the level. Maybe only 75% health, that way it's balanced, and you aren't just fading into the either every few minutes after waiting on your mana to recharge.
  6. I'll have to put some more thought into it, but when I first got into streaming I thought I was doing something really unique when I decided to do a run of Skyrim as a stealth archer. No other weapons allowed whatsoever. Little did I know that thousands of other people had come up with the same idea.
  7. For those who have gotten into game development, other than the idea phase, what was your first step in making a video game? When did it feel like you really had momentum and it was more than just an idea that you were tinkering with?
  8. One of the good arguments I've heard so far is that it feels good to start at ground zero with everyone else being at the same rank. So people feel they are more in it together. (Then again as the days go by that fact is going to change because of the people who are playing around the clock)
  9. What is the best story that has ever been told with video games? Has there ever been a story that originated somewhere else, but was adapted to a video game that you think made the story better?
  10. If you could have any 3 weapons or tools from any video game, what would they be and why? As far as tools, for instance, imagine if you could have the pickaxe from Minecraft, and it gave you the ability to mine and break down any material from any other game.

    Best weapons/tools in video games

    I see mobility is a priority for you. Could be a hell of a boss battle to try and pin down, but even when someone did they would still have to worry about Last Prism.
  12. Its been tough because there are so many good ones, but only some are still fresh in my memory, so I'm going to take the easy way out and go with my personal latest BEST OF story... Let's be honest, the best story is the latest God of War. Not that it has the absolute best writing, but definitely the scop and sale of the story are literally on godly levels. A father and son story about a God who has to raise a boy not to just become a man, but a friggin' GOD. And raise him to be a good God even though Kratos has been perhaps the blood lustiest, angry, and hateful, god of them all.

    Fire Emblem: Three Houses

    War is coming to the continent of Fódlan. Here, order is maintained by the Church of Seiros, which hosts the prestigious Officer's Academy within its headquarters. You are invited to teach one of its three mighty houses, each comprised of students brimming with personality and represented by a royal from one of three territories. As their professor, you must lead your students in their academic lives and in turn-based, tactical RPG battles wrought with strategic, new twists to overcome. Which house, and which path, will you choose? The game features the refined gameplay the Fire Emblem franchise is known for. Command a party of warriors to move and fight on a grid-based battlefield and, for the first time in the series history, assign battalions of troops to support individual units in battle. As a professor, you are responsible for teaching your students and improving their skills in their academic lives and in battle. These may be school assignments, but the stakes are very real. Your students' lives depend on your leadership. It's up to you to guide each of them, so that they may wield a variety of weapons, master the study of magic, and acquire special skills such as horsemanship. But there's more to being a professor than commanding armies. Freely roam Garreg Mach Monastery and the academy within it, while interacting with talented students to build relationships and gather intel. After meeting one enigmatic girl named Sothis...you'll come to realize that she appears only within your mind. What other mysteries await?
