Raiding raiding raiding. Is World of Warcraft all about the endgame? The folks at Casually Hardcore don’t think so, and they tell us all about it every Sunday at 12pm EST, 9am PDT (their local time) at WCRadio.com.
CH is more than just a WoW show, however. The current hosts, Gnomewise, Iolite and Grail are all parents and “real live grownups” with jobs and responsibilities. As a result, CH becomes as much a show about balancing geekdom and family as it is about 5-man instances and in-game events.
The show doesn’t skimp on WoW content, though. During their recent “Masters of 5” series, Gnome, Io and Grail provided comprehensive walkthroughs of every 5-man Outland instance, complete with loot tables. Other shows have discussed the beta at length or talked about professions in exhaustive detail.
Interesting fan-made music and a weekly in-game dance party round out the program. Each week Gnome starts a musical preshow at 11:00 EST, 8:00 PST, and there is a lengthy music break during the show. Listeners can expect to hear everything from death metal to game-related filk, and everything in between. If you want to dance, head over to Booty Bay, Ratchet, or wherever Io throws the weekly party. Prepare to suicide like lemmings off the nearest cliff after the show.
For being an excellent, funny, well-balanced WoW-related radio show and podcast, Casually Hardcore gets 5 Weiners out of 5.
Casually Hardcore is available on Sundays at WCRadio.com, or via iTunes as a Podcast soon after the broadcast.
