we gonna die

All posts tagged we gonna die

Morning! Wow, you look great – you must have had loads of sleep, a healthy breakfast and a nice relaxing morning. Good for you. Sorry for the delay with the podcast this week; as you may have noticed, the site was awfully sluggish yesterday so we couldn’t update it. For the technically minded amongst you, our Apache instance was buggered and needed a restart. All sorted now, though! This week, we’re guest-less, so you’re stuck with Flapz, Hunni and I.

On this week’s show:

  • We talk about our BlizzCon community event, BarCraft-on-Thames!
  • The BlizzCon store items have been announced. How much will we be spending (spoiler: ALL THE MONEY)?
  • How are we getting on in SoO?
  • Wing 3 LFR impressions.
  • …And much more!

Join us next week where we’ll be joined by the mighty John Patricelli of BigBearButt fame! In the meantime, we love hearing from you guys. Get in touch on Twitter, Facebook, or via email. Until next time, love, hugs, and squishy, traitorous Klaxxi bugs. Toman.

Roll up, roll up, for all the fun of the fair! Our big top this evening is compered by our illustrious ringmaster, Flapz! Watch as he once again puts his head in the lion’s mouth, metaphorically speaking. Come one, come all, and see the bearded lady aka Reliq, Toman the clown, and world’s strongest woman the Godmother of Faff! Watch us walk the tightrope of raiding, juggle guilds and fiery 5.3 nerfs, and other such fairground related activities in Ready Check Episode 7!

This week’s show includes:

  • Special guest Godmother, GM of Cotton Candy (Shadowsong EU) and writer of Alternative-Blog.net! (Spoiler alert: she’s lovely);
  • More ToT hotfixes;
  • An expanded “WE GONNA DIE” section talking about guild leadership and issues;
  • Our final Race to World First, in which Reliq’s man-crush is justified;
  • Mod of the Week – WowCardioRaid;
  • And much more!

This week’s show was a lot of fun to record. We had an absolute blast with Godmother, so a massive thanks for joining us and we hope to do it again soon! If anyone else would like to guest star on Ready Check, get in touch as we’d love to hear from you. Finally, as part of our discussion this week we asked:

“How do you encourage previously hand-held raiders to use their own initiative?”

We’re really interested in hearing what you all say to this one. Email us or send us a Tweet. Until next time, love, hugs, and dinosaur rugs!

In our last show, our daring party rolled a natural 20 and evaded the grasp of the mighty tree druid, Melgrim. This week, he continues to be banished, or so they hope. After camping overnight to regenerate their health and relearn their spells, our heroes go dungeon crawling, battle trolls and encounter legendary items… but it’s not all plain sailing. How will our adventurers cope with the pressure of finally gaining their first fans? Will Flapz ever realise he’s pronouncing Toman wrong? How will Reliq reconcile himself with the fact that he’s in purgatory, neither British nor Australian, forever stuck as a Faux-stralian? Join us for answers to these questions and more, in The Ready Check Adventure Game Episode 6.

In this week’s show, we cover:

  • Patch 5.3 nerfs, and live ToT hotfixes;
  • What separates EU hardcore guilds from their US counterparts?;
  • “WE GONNA DIE” (stupid accent mandatory);
  • Mod of the Week – Bigwigs;
  • And much more!

We have a few guests lined up over the next couple of weeks, but we’re always looking for more! Specifically, we’re bored of talking about healers, so if you’re a DPS player and want to come and talk rubbish with us, please get in touch via email or Twitter. Also, we would absolutely love it if you could rate us on iTunes or Stitcher – you can find us on both by searching for Ready Check or by clicking the links on our homepage. Until next time, love, hugs, and successful PUGs.

You’ll be pleased to know, dear listener, that our sound issues from last week have been resolved! Huzzah! So, with that great piece of news, we present to you Ready Check episode 5! We’re minus Melgrim this week, who is off jet-setting again, this time in Copenhagen. He’ll be back next week, unfortunately, so in the meantime, enjoy our streamlined, efficient, and downright sexy 3-man crew!

This week’s show includes:

  • New LFR wing impressions, specifically, the titular DERPumu!;
  • Disc priest changes in 5.3;
  • “WE GONNA DIE” – new bumper with ‘awesome’ intro! (Reliq’s words, not mine);
  • Managing a raid roster, and looking after your social members;
  • Mod of the Week – Raeli’s Spell Announcer;
  • And much more!

We’d really like any raid leaders, or people who run a guild, to get in touch this week. We’re looking for guests to talk about issues that you face, so if you’re interested in helping out with the third best UK-based raiding podcast featuring members with names starting To, Re, Fl and Me, then email us (mailbag@readycheck.co.uk) or send us a Tweet. Until next time, love, hugs and successful PUGs.

Good morning, evening, lunchtime, or whatever time this reaches you, kind people of the Internet. Ready Check episode 4 is here for your delectation, derision, and, perhaps, desalinisation? We’re, sadly, sans Reliq today, and are a little late due to the Easter holidays – apologies for that! Also, don’t adjust your sets as we had a bit of a… technical problem this week that means Flapz sounds like he’s on the world’s slowest dialup connection. Sorry! We’ll sort it out for next week. Today’s show includes:

  • An entire podcast discussing JETPACK JOYRIDE! (almost)
  • 5.3 features, such as Loot Specialisation and Bad-Luck Protection
  • Shaman 20% healing buff
  • “WE GONNA DIE” (bonus non-Reliq accent included)
  • Mod of the Week – ElvUI
  • And much more!

If you would prefer to listen to the show on your Mobile iDevicedroid, then you can subscribe to the show on Stitcher and iTunes! As always, we love hearing from you, so get in touch with us over on Twitter or via email. Until next time, love, hugs and squishy bugs!

Hi once again from the Ready Check crew, yo. Mel is unable to join us this week (something about being in Dubai? A poor excuse), so you’re left in the (allegedly) capable hands of Flapz, Reliq and To[e]man. It’s time for episode 3 of our merry journey, where our thrifty threesome offer all sorts of news, tips, and general asshatery in the name of self aggrandising braggadocio. Or something. This week, we discuss:

  • Hearthstone, Blizzard’s new CCG
  • LFR in Throne of Thunder; wing 2 impressions
  • Will they nerf the bridge boss?!
  • “WE GONNA DIE” (stupid accent mandatory)
  • Mod of the Week – Hermes
  • And much more!

We’ve had a blast interacting with our friends and fans over on Twitter this week, and would love to hear from you. Tweet us @ready_check or email mailbag@readycheck.co.uk if you have anything you’d like us to discuss, if you’d like a shout-out on the show, if you have an opinion about how Toman should pronounce his name, or if you’re just bored and want someone to banter with. Also, let us know what you think of the new show intro – Reliq spent at least 20 hungover minutes on that. Until next week, so long!
