ShackCast Episode 4.5: BlizzCon and BioShock

In this brief appended ShackCast--to which one might very well refer as the BlizzCast, to complement yesterday's QuakeCast!--Nick Breckon talks in detail about StarCraft 2 and a bit about World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, both of which he played at Blizzard's wondrous BlizzCon event. Carlos Bergfeld also speaks on BioShock, which he may or may not have completed (hint: he did).

Apologies for the occasional brief audio issue, and for acting as if this podcast actually came before Episode 4--originally, it did, but we started playing around with the fabric of space and time and, well, you know how that goes.

Play now, download the episode, check it out via iTunes, RSS, or Digg, or check out the full episode breakdown.

Here's the full breakdown:
0:00:00: It's a song!
0:01:57: StarCraft 2! It's awesome! Hooray!
0:18:32: StarCraft 2 single-player! It's awesome(r)! It's like an adventure game!
0:19:55: World of Warcraft! Death Knight!
0:24:14: BioShock! Somehow we also talk about themes of racism in Mario 2.
0:37:39: "We should probably wrap this up." No outtakes! Sorry!

    I'm only up to shackcast 3, but I love these. Particularly how it's less restrictive for you guys to voice your opinions. Instead of being able to take time and carefully choose your words in a written review/preview, and the desire to write something worth putting up on a commercial website, you guys are free to say, "GHII rock the 80's sucks." or "That whole Viva Pinata cross marketing thing pissed me off.".
