Shacknews Chattycast 19: BlizzCon Jelly

In which the remaining crew smolders with envy at Ozzie's fortunate geography.


This week, the Chattycast crew wishes they were all at BlizzCon. Steve Watts, Steven Wong, Daniel Perez and Andrew Zucosky talk about mall food courts, potentially overlooked Game of the Year contenders, Blizzard's direction post-Titan, Ubisoft's falling out with Steam, and Grand Theft Auto 5's FPS mode. Then, most of the gang gathers around the mic again for a brief post-show segment to talk about all the announcements Blizzard unveiled in its opening ceremonies. Meanwhile, Ozzie is off enjoying playing the games himself. So jelly!

      I'm glad you added the extra bit at the end to cover some of the preliminary BlizzCon news! The episode was already pretty amusing with your guesses from when you recorded this earlier in the week.

      Also, nice teamwork on the food court question.

        After all was said and done, Steve felt like we couldn't wait an entire week to discuss what happened.

        He was completely right.
