Episode 16 – Boss Guy Drops Stoof We Like!

Nevik, Breja, and Jen are all very excited about finally being able to play Diablo III! It was good to know that the game didn’t just end after you kill the Skeleton King. How many of you were still expecting to see text pop up on your screen after that kill, letting you know that you beat the Diablo III beta? 😉

Starting with this episode, we are including a new “segment”. Nevik, Breja, and Jen will be sharing what each of them have been up to in the Diablo III game. Don’t worry, we are being very careful not to reveal spoilers in our discussion.

In this episode:

* We read, and respond to, an amazing amount of listener email from LunarFisher, Floydman, Moogyver, and Ametous. We also go over a great comment that we got on the “Launch Night” blog post from Samuel Ma. We also got not one, but two, audio responses! Medros tells us how to find Development Hell, and Shawn clarifies about whether he is a runner or a clearer.

Send us your thoughts, comments, and Diablo III related stories to show@shatteredsoulstone.com. We will happily share them on the show!

* We quickly go over several new iTunes reviews from listeners. Big “Thank You!” to MrMistery, dws778899, Chad, and MMO4Life ! 🙂

* Nevik wrote a detailed blog post about his melee wizard on his blog, Nevik’s Notebook

* We talk a little about the Launch Night audio that Jen and Shawn recorded.

* Jen made a Diablo III Playlist for you to listen to. Shawn made it into a playlist on Spotify. (Thanks Shawn!)

* Jen finally got around to writing about the Diablo III 2012 wall calendar artwork for April. It’s about the Demon Hunter!

* Nevik and Jen were guests on Obscurecast! It is another show on the Dawnforge network, and we highly recommend you check it out.

* Please help out our good friend Skolnick! His Diablo III game is broken and won’t let him get in and start playing the game. If you have advice that can help him out, let him know @Skolnick_Who.

In Diablo news:

* Go get an Authenticator.

* Blizzard will help players in AU who didn’t get end up receiving their Diablo III game from GAME. Details here.

* For more news, we recommend you check out Diablo Fans and Diablo Inc Gamers.


Nevik is going to make a witch doctor. Yes, really! However, since he’s been calling the class “The Puke Doctor” for so long, he is now having difficulty coming up with a good name for him. Help Nevik come up with a name!

Whoever comes up with the best, funniest, or most appropriate name will win a Hard cover Diablo III Limited Edition strategy guide*. Send your best witch doctor name to @shatteredstone before Friday, June 8, 2012, (before we record episode 17).

  1. It was funny I was playing with Nevik on Monday and listening to the show and you guys started to talking about the Goblin that drops tons of loot and we ran into one right when you guys were talking about it on the show while I was listening. I just thought that was cool.

    Your shows are great I just recently finshed all the shows from the start.

  2. Enjoy your podcast. But folks, you really don’t need to play every call or read every letter. Guy reading out every developer name was intolerable.

    1. Medros’ Dev Hell “call” did run far longer than it needed to. I told him that it needed to be trimmed down, however I failed to be more clear on the necessity of trimming. Didn’t hear the final version until the podcast was published, so my apologies for how it came out.

      As for not needing to read every email, well … you see … that’s the point of our show. It’s what we do. BUT we will try to make sure if we include audio segments from listeners (and *ahem*Papa Kangaroo*ahem*) that they’re concise. Fair?

    2. I truly apologize for going on so long. I was very excited, and very happy to have finally found the very rare dungeon, and just rambled. I had hoped it would have been cut down to a more reasonable length in edit, but it appears not to have been done. Sorry!
