Episode #114 – Celebrity Countdown – Madseason on WoW Classic, Brad McQuaid on MMO’s & Pantheon, Athalus on WoW Radio, & SneakyB4rd on Quests


It’s raining notable names over at Countdown To Classic as Josh sits down for a bunch of epic one on one chats.

First, we hear from Madseason, of the immensely popular Madseasonshow YouTube channel, as he sits down for a tavern chat covering a variety of WoW Classic topics as we get a bit of a deeper insight into his thoughts on Classic and what makes him and his character tick.

Next, MMORPG icon, Brad McQuaid, stops by for a lengthy chat covering his thoughts on the state of MMORPG’s, game design philosophies, and some meaty chat another highly anticipated MMORPG that he’s currently working on in Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen.

After that, Athalus, the founder of WoW Radio, checks in to talk about the wild ride of setting up the first ever World of Warcraft talk show, discovering & working with TotalBiscuit, and leaves with a fun announcement about his plans for Classic.

And finally, we talk with SneakyB4rd, who’s not a celebrity outside of the show, but it’s his second time on the podcast so he’s a celebrity to us! We chat about some of his favourite quests, favourite questing zones, and what makes the quests of Classic good or bad.
