Ask Blizzard??

Got a burning question you’ve been wanting to ask someone from Blizzard, but can’t attend BlizzCon? Well, you’ll get a chance to get your questions answered. Slashdot is hosting an “Ask Blizzard Employees About Things That Matter” event, in which all you have to do is post your question, and the Slashdot folks who are attending BlizzCon will ask them. They have a sit-down scheduled with Chris Sigaty, lead producer on StarCraft II; Jeffrey Kaplan (aka Tigole), game director for World of Warcraft; Leonard Boyarsky, lead world designer on Diablo III; and Paul Sams, Blizzard COO. Your questions regarding Diablo III art will go the way of the dead horse, so don’t bother. Otherwise, post away!

Episode 65 has posted



I welcome special guest co-host Corey Tamas to the show this week. Also, an interview with Mark Batten of Red Marble Games. Plus, an editorial of The Wrath of the Lich King.

Sorry I’m a little delayed in mentioning that Episode 65 had posted. We found that the podcast was so long, though, that we had to carve out the game reviews! I am in the process of finishing up a special Game Review Edition for those…that’ll be posted shortly. When it is, I’ll not just post about it, I’ll also tweet about it! Yup, I’ve got a twitter feed not just for me, Omaha, but also for iGame Radio now. So, go join up to get the latest info on when a podcast posts and when cool Mac game stuff happens. :D
