HD 38: A Noob Hope

A Noob Hope

Welcome back to the High Drag where we ask the question “What can we do for the Newbs that we haven’t done already?” Ashterothi said “why don’t we just do a whole episode for answering noob questions”?

Brilliance!

So episode 38, A Noob Hope, is a totally noob-centric podcast episode. We take a mail we received and answer a bunch of the questions. We handed out our Newb Package (care of CSM Member Mike Azariah and the Angel Project) How easy was that?

HD 37: Beating The Dead Horse Twice


Beating The Dead Horse Twice

Wow, Wow! Your intrepid podcasters return with a little help from Mike Azariah (who’s rapidly developing permanent Panel membership) in our pre-July 4th recording. In our first segment, Random discovers STEAM and we completely destroy our outline and go straight into the indy talk for Crius. Without Kyle to whip us along, we beat this dead horse, also known as the indy changes and then go into the Return of the ISBoxer issues. Yikes!

We return from the break with some listener mail and go into a discussion of DUO team piloting pvp and AznWithBeard hops in to hash this out with Fin. We move directly into the Yin of Fin where we continue the duo discussion with a remote rep Vexor fit.

Lots and lots of shoutouts! Be sure to listen to the very very end. ;)

HD 36: Skeletons, Squirrels and Doing It Solo

Skeletons, Squirrels and Doing It Solo

Summertime has certainly hit. Sometimes the urge to go out and see that big bright shiny thing in the sky is a bit more overwhelming than huddling in the dark and playing internet spaceships. At least for some of us.

We return with a new schedule now that Fin is gainfully employed and we return with a skeleton crew. Notably absent were Kyle and Ash. Thats alright though, since Random and Fin carry the load with an assist by Mike Azariah, CSM 9 member and epic mustache wearer!

Episode 36 is a squirrel laden show where we discuss what we’ve done in game, discuss our impressions of Kronos, throw a plug to the Angel Project, and thats just before the break! After we return, we talk solo pvp and get into a surprising Yin of Fin and Random’s arm length list of shout outs.

Didn’t see this coming!

Eve BlackJack: I am already going to give back all of my money to Eve Blackjack, not just because it’s fun and potentially rewarding, but for the sole reason they are keeping this podcast running, so head on over and give them some business.

HD 33: Red Wedding Fanfest Style

Red Wedding Fanfest Style

Wow! CCP’s greatest party on behalf of the players. A major shindig for three days celebrating the relationship between CCP, their various universes, and their player base.

Who let in Walder Frey?

We recorded this episode on an off night to discusses Fanfest, the upcoming summer expansion and the reveals presented by CCP including Katee Sackoff (Starbuck from Battlestar Galactica fame) joining in the voice over works for EVE Valkyrie and the PR fiasco during the Dust514 keynote address. Hans Jagerblitzen joins us again, now free to speak more about EVE Legion, CCP Rouge and what went wrong in what was supposed to be great news for the Dusties. Congratulations to all the elected members of CSM 9! Now that Xander Phoena survived the election process, we probably wont hear the end of it. ;)

HD 32: Hans Who?


Hans Who

We’re back, and Happy Easter! Episode 32 was a jam packed episode! We started out our first hour with CSM 8 and current CPM 0 member Hans Jagerblitzen discussing Dust 514 and a healthy dose of people telling Random to “suck it”. Regretfully, Hans wasn’t able to stay with us for the whole show but it was easy to tell that potential announcements regarding Dust at Fan Fest have him excited. Our break features members of the community urging people to vote for CSM 9 (which is active RIGHT NOW). We discuss some of the breaking news in the world of CCP (Unifex leaving, WoD being disbanded and the proposed Industrial changes) and wrap up the episode with our favorite pvp fits and the Yin of Fin!
