The Queue: Wait, I actually enjoyed playing Hearthstone Mercenaries?

I’m as surprised as you guys! I mean, I literally didn’t want to play it, I just did it because our beloved EiC Liz Harper made the point that I should probably give it a shot if we were going to talk about it during the podcast. And then I did play it, and… I kind of liked it? I mean, it didn’t become an obsession or anything, but I enjoyed the experience and I felt like this is what the Garrison mission table should have been — not just selecting characters and sending them off to fight, but actually controlling them, choosing how they attack and what tactics they use.

I mean, it’s not particularly deep, but I’m not even past level 7 yet, so we’ll see how it feels once I get better at it. Regardless, I actually had fun playing it and I’m not adverse to continuing to play it.

Oh, and I’m listening to L7’s Pretend We’re Dead as part of my I’m awake at 4 am and I need music to function playlist. It’s also got Wolves Without Teeth by Of Monsters and Men on there, which is pretty dang good, you should try that out.


The Queue: Missed opportunities

There are several things I’m disappointed never made it into WoW. Among those, felt the keenest, is the fact that we’ll never have a Corgis Unleashed expansion after all.

This is The Queue, where you ask us questions and we’re going to talk about how we were totally going have quivers before we answer.

Seriously, remember those?


The Queue: Time to rest

This year just kind of keeps dragging on, and most days feel like other days. To wit, this entire week has felt like it should be one day ahead. But it is not, in fact, Friday — it’s Thursday. And you know what that means.

We’re gonna have a Queue.


The Queue: Untitled Moose Maim

Still playing a lot of Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. Kind of digging the Crusade mode, which is very much a small tactical wargame inside my isometric RPG. I mean, it’s not Warcraft 3 or anything, but you can name the armies whatever you want within the character limit. Somehow I went from The Fighting Mongooses to Goosemon to Man-Goose-Bear-Pig to this, my ultimate creation.

I’d love to play Untitled Moose Maim. I imagine it as a game where a moose maims people.

What? It doesn’t have to be complicated. Sometimes you just want to play a moose on a rampage. Look I live in Canada, you’ll just have to accept this.
