Episode 48: Cooldowns are the Bane of my Game

30 Jan

I really hate cooldowns

Click below for the audio segment:


I recently leveled up my engineering to 600 and farmed for about 30 minutes until the Sky Golem pattern dropped along with the recipe needed to create a crucial material for this mount, Jard’s Peculiar Engergy Source. But, this can only be crafted once a day. So, I’ve been dutifully logging into WoW on most days to make one of these along with a living steel, but I can’t actually log in every single day! Some days I just can’t get to my gaming rig, but I always have my iPhone with me. For the love of Zeus, Blizzard, will you please make an app to craft items!! While you’re at it, it’d be great if it let us do almost anything not related to actually fighting in WoW. Be it pet battles, crafting, or the barber shop, just freaking add it. This mount takes 30 days to make, but it’ll be about 60 for me, just because I’m apparently not committed enough to this game to jump through the hoop every day like a good little citizen of Azeroth!!!!!

Ok, I’m not really that upset guys. I hope I didn’t just troll ya.

For you sports fans out there (HAHAHAHA!), Willie Dills and I will be heading up to AT&T park in San francisco on Friday to interview many of the San Francisco Giants players, including Buster Posey, Tim Lincecum, Sergio Romo and many others. Follow us @TortureCast or visit TortureCast.com where will be posting videos of our interviews and ramping up for another exciting season of Giants baseball!


Nerd Rage!!!!!

15 May

FIX YOUR D3 SEVERS DIABLO!! (btw, IRL I only have one chin, I’m healthy)

I’m not one to nerd rage, I have too many things that I care about in my life to get upset about a video game (great job, a wife, 2 wonderful kids, baseball, etc.).


Okay, now that I’ve got that off my chest, I can go onto wishing how and when I’ll be able to actually play this infernal game.

On another front, I recently put out a call to the community to submit justifications that I could use on my wife for attending Nerdtacular. Well, I’ll notify the winner soon, and although their particular “justification” wasn’t what worked, I still owe them game time. However, I was able to negotiate a trip out to Utah, given that I DRIVE from the Bay Area (CA) to save on gas. One way to cut on gas money is to carpool, so I’ll be cruising out in June with Dills to play some golf, nerd out, and watch “Brave” on the final day.

I’m a happy nerd.

And, go Giants!
