In addition, we talk a bit about the upcoming event, BlizzCon! If you missed the ninth episode, you can check it out here. Otherwise, the tenth episode covered the following topics:

    A nice podcast as usual, I understand why it was shortened a bit since there obviously haven't been any new information since the follower system was revealed :P

    Also: "They Help You Play With Yourself", I find that kinda funny for some reason B)

    Although there isn't really extremely much news and info around to cover. I gotta say that it's still interesting to listen to you guys. Keep up the good work. :)

    Swedish viking, lol. I'm definately going to start using that phrase.

    Nice to hear your guy's take on it. Hopefully, the lack of new stuff from Blizzard means they are hard at work getting D3 ready for beta.

    I got a feeling in my tummy that something else will be announced next week.

    Purely my opinion.

    Is there a limit to the digital feed tickets? I would think there isn't but i just wanted to be clear lest I miss my chance to get them. Also for the feed can I load it up so if my connection hates me that day I don't miss anything?

    Sorry I just heard the info I need on the video please disregard......


    Hay! my follower keeps getting 1 shot... I'll go play online with someone. Wait... he's running off doing his own thing so much for co-op....

    **************************************************************************************************
    There was a question here... I found the answer. >
    **************************************************************************************************

    Have you ever sat at your computer pressing F5 every so often hoping there was an answer to your forum question? lol makes me feel like I should have better things to do. o.o

    P.S. how can i get a Monk animated avatar like " Gaurav Bhattacharjee " has the Barb. (Thank you Gaurav Bhattacharjee and others for answers)

    As stated in the Podcast by Force, there shouldnt be any limit to the feed tickets, as u call them, the only possible reason for that could be bandwidth problems and i dont think, thats gonna happen. And i believe, it was also said in the Podcast, you can rewatch all the videos as often as u want, so if u miss something or if your connection just isnt up to a live feed that day, you can watch it afterwards as often as u want. At least thats what i think :P

    You're right about this, but there's always the right ppl to play with and the wrong ones. You just need to find some of the right type and make friends with them, its not that difficult :D

    In terms of the follower system you held, I'd like to draw a parallel to the usual balance between hardcore and casual content.

    I'll exemplify with WoW raiding. The argument was greatly raised in the past that lots of content and lore was made exclusive to raiders and that casuals had no way to experiencing this. In a way, they felt cheated off content and, sometimes more importantly, story. The raiders of course always retorted that this was how it was supposed to be.

    The issue has, as far as I can telll, largely been resolved since WotLK with raids receiving Heroic modes, spreading the content to most players interested.

    Compare this to our follower system. The argument is the same, except this time the hardcore audience is on the losing edge, since here is content and story that's offered specifically to the casual player, or mostly to the casual at least. It's an interesting situation I feel, and something you rarely see in games.
