Welcome to episode # 244 of the the podcast celebrating the Alea Iacta Est gaming community. This is Mkallah, and when I’m not podcasting, I am messing up the guild kitchen. With me as always, is Tetsemi (“spread sheets blah blah”). Alludra is off scouting out the best houses to go trick or treating at. This week we are joined by special guests Arveshet and Sferics who are here to talk to us about AIE in SWTOR. Welcome!
Ok, we’ll be talking to Arv and Sferics shortly, but first, let’s cover this week’s news…
Did you know have an AIE Community on PS4? We do! Please check out the thread on the forums for people looking for other AIE Members and folks looking for an invite to the PS4 community.
We also have a Neverwinter Nights presence, led by Ratto Zatto, check out the forums for activity and invite instructions
For those attending Blizzcon, in less than two weeks, the AIE Guild Hall is going to be available and active, and they are looking for volunteers to help make it successful. We need people and donations to help cover expenses.
The Guild Hall will be open at exactly 8:00 AM on Friday November 6th and Saturday November 7th and will be closing down when one of the persons in charge falls asleep from exhaustion (but most likely before midnight Sunday.)
Location: The Anaheim Convention Center Hilton, upstairs at the top of the escalator, then left. Look for signs.
CCP had some big news this weekend at the EVE Vegas 2015 event. Coming Spring of 2016, expect the Citadel Expansion, which is expected to be the biggest addition to the sandbox gameplay since the original starbases. Citadel will include a complete overhaul of capital ships and three different sizes of the new modular citadel structure which will be anchorable anywhere including high security space. Links in the shownotes on where you can get more information, including our forums.
Heart of Thorns expansion is now live and there’s a lively discussion on the forums around what type of guild hall AIE is working towards, please check out both threads, about the expansion and guild hall and see what’s going on in GW2.
Also join us next week when Jedhai will be going more in depth about AIE in GW2 and the game in general.
The Secret World
The second part of Issue #12: to the Dark Tower is here, with lots of new context and challenges. Take on the new Manufactory Breached Dungeon, where you continue the story from the Manufactory and face all new challenges in the depths of the Orochi headquarters.
Fight against the hideous monstrosities which the Orochi have tried to take control of, and hear from your old acquaintances John and Emma as they struggle for the future of Tokyo.
You can also enjoy the all new Nightmare version of the New York Raid. Get ready for even more epic battles as you now need to master your opponent’s AEGIS attacks and defenses.
Also, the preorder for The Park, Funcom’s upcoming psychological horror thriller, set in The Secret World’s Atlantic Island Park, where a dark and sinister secret is just waiting to be uncovered is currently 23% off. The game will be out just in time for Halloween, with a release date of Tuesday, October 27th.
