Some friends like to get together for a pizza once in a while – We’re not those kind of friends. Instead of the pizza we decided to start a passion project revolving around our favorite game developer. This is Loot Shoot Lane a fancast dedicated to Blizzard Entertainment. If you think we’re fan boys, you’re probably right. Hosted by Cade & Matte, you can write into the show via email@example.com or follow us on Twitter @LootShootLane
We’re back to our standard duo this episode as Neo and Toons start off with what the future might hold for Diablo. Blizzard has finally learned to balance their games evenly. In HoTS news: Toons actually played and some heroes got nerfed (read: tuned) and Brawl is on the PTR. Overwatch came out with a Halloween update including new skins, which we love, and a pve style brawl that’s super fun. Neo loves Fall so he enjoys all this. We still don’t like the ranked rating system though. Also: Neo loves fall.
Neo is out of town, so Toons has his pick of any co-hosts for the week. Any he could possibly think of. In lieu of this fact he decides to use The Unusual Fill-Ins consisting of a moogle and a ginger. Alright, one may not actually be a moogle. Mog and Remy pitch in on this weeks show talking some of Mog’s time spent with Blizzard titles of yore. There’s a lot of discussion on the future of Overwatch as a franchise and possibly even a blockbuster movie. The sky is seemingly the limit for Blizzard Entertainment and we love the hell out of them. We apologize for the unusual format with our unusual fill-ins but hope you enjoy! Don’t forget to send us in your mails regarding the world of Blizzard, we’ll make sure to answer them on the show. See you next time.
The full Hipster Trio graces your presence on this week’s Loot Shoot Lane! We have Neo, Toons and Rem to talk about what they’ve been up to in regards to the world of Blizzard Entertainment. Most vape noises have been edited out for your continuing listening enjoyment. The boys talk about their adventures in Diablo, Neo throws some love to Heroes of the Storm. He doesn’t shower the Valla changes with his affections though and The Butcher may have become the Bae’tcher. We may or may not have formed a Bloodpact regarding World of Warcraft, please save us from ourselves. Rounding out the show as always is Overwatch and our recent experiences with ranked. Well, we guess two out of three trying to play competitive ain’t bad. Send us some of your experiences in any of the games we’ve discussed to firstname.lastname@example.org. On the Twitter-sphere you can follow us @LootShootLane.
…And we’re back, back again, with Blizzard news, tell some friends. Guess who’s back, guess who– Nevermind, it was funnier outloud. Welcome back to Loot, Shoot, Lane! We have to tell you that eventful Diablo times remain ever eventful. So many Diablo times, as far as the eye can see this week! As our Diablo Season 7 adventures continue onward, Toonsy is almost Paragon Level 500. Neo is over Paragon Level 500. Wait, OVER 500?! THAT’S IMPOSSIBLE! We’re kidding, it’s not. It is some dedication though. We also have a character death to discuss this week and a new one leveled in under an hour or so. Meanwhile in Heroes of the Storm news, Neo does some chit chatting Chairleague and some bloodlust. Rosterpocalype is still trudging ever forward. In the world of competitive HoTS all the players get traded, it’s just like a real sport, kids. Overwatch once more rounds us out as the new season of competitive play drops real soon. You see that new Reinhardt skin? Toonsy did and when we asked him for his official comment for this blog-style post, he sent us an audio file of him vaping for ten minutes straight. We’re guessing it’s his version of heavy breathing intensifies – He’s such a hipster.
Guys, Diablo tweeted out Blizzcon will be fun! The worst part about that Tweet is they used a winky face – What does it all mean? We have some thoughts after we do our usual Diablo Funnery on this episode. Season 7 is still going strong and Toonsy did a Greater Rift 60 but still can’t find a Furnace. Sad face. See Blizzard, we can do that too! Neo found an Ancient Yangs, making him the better of our pair. Smiley face. In Heroes of the Storm news, well mostly for the show, Neo registered himself as a Caster for Chair League. Tears of joy face. If you’re interested in the MVP System it’s coming to the Nexus – Overwatch Style. Not surprised face. All of you Valla fans, she’s getting reworked and we’re hoping that’s a good thing! Later on in the episode we’re talking the end of competitive Season 1 in Overwatch. We’re sure you’re not surprised by that, either. Angelic face. All of this and some random topics we like to pepper in to keep you on your toes! Enjoy! Kissy face.
Welcome to the very legal episode of Loot, Shoot, Lane! It’s Episode 21 so we made it? Who knows! There’s so many seasons going on, it has to be tough for everyone to keep up with. Thankfully, you have us, we think to guide you along the way. Let’s talk about Diablo Season 7, which has been out for over a week now. Neo has done a 59 Greater Rift and Toons is only at 58. It’s not a competition but maybe it is. You’ll never know for sure. We both have goals for the season, some similar, some different from each other. Going back to so many seasons, here’s some breaking news in HoTS – Kael’thas sucks, really bad. The first season of HoTS comes to a close in just over a week. Neo uses the word Penultimate which means the one before the last and Toons looks up the definition. Rosterpocalypse still seems to be a thing in HoTS after all major tournaments. We have to be honest with you, Neo should probably be a shout caster at this point. Tired of seasons yet? No? Good! In Overwatch news, Neo heard rumors of more bans which is great for the game, especially if you’ve been annoyed. On the security front, sneaky assholes have been boosting accounts and some controversy over Olympic skins has to be talked about. The first season of Overwatch is about to end and there are rewards based on your highest rank earned in the season. Overwatch tournaments are happening and the prize pools are pretty respectable. Can we get a better way to watch them though?
Twas the night before Season 7 and all through the cast, we were wired af and ready to rift blast. Oh, that isn’t how it goes? Hey everybody, it’s time for another episode of Loot Shoot Lane. We start it out with the thing we’re most excited for: Season 7 Diablo talk. The discussions are so tasty, you may just become a foodie after listening. Neo still can’t make up his mind on what he’s going to play first. There is an awful lot of talk on his end about a Leapquake Barbarian, Vegas odds are looking good on that choice. On the HoTS side of things, there was an Auriel first look video that was really interesting. If you can’t tell – That’s what we talk about. There’s also some changes to Kael’thas, everyone’s favorite Prince and Blood Mage. We talk about some of these changes and how they look to us. The Overwatch discussion is also pretty hot, with some new Summer Game Loot Boxes. These bad boys are themed around the Rio Olympics! Neither of us have played Lucioball and Toons has never played a Final Fantasy. He’s pretty much the worst. We both do happen to agree that we enjoy D’Va a whole lot. Look for us later as we stream some Season 7, see you then. Night before season to all and to all a good fight!
