Sorry this is a couple days late. Life has been winning.

We also now have a Twitter account! Follow us at @MechwarriorHD.

As I did last time, Unit reviews and game reports are separate files. Enjoy!

Episode 2
September 19, 2010 04:23 PM PDT

Welcome to Episode 2!

This episode, we start talking about the rules for Mechwarrior:Heavy Duty, and introduce a new segment. “What did he say?” will highlight the dumb thing of the last episode. Since I am the only one recording right now, it’s something that I said.

Hopefully, Ken or Dave will start recording, and they can take up some of the slack…

Also uploaded the unit reviews in a separate file, as I did with the game reports. Putting them in the main podcast would have made the thing well over an hour long. This also lets you just download what you want to hear. We’ll see how this works out.

Forgot to mention the links below in the podcast, so here they are:

Feel free to use this promo in your podcast, or just listen to it for enjoyment.

Mechwarriors:Heavy Duty Episode 1

Welcome to the first episode of the Mechwarriors:Heavy Duty podcast.

MW:HD was created by Clay Dugger, Ken Edelstein, and Dave Huff, here in San Antonio, Texas. We spent 2 years writing the rule book. It started life as a few additions and modifications to the Wizkids game Mechwarriors, but quickly evolved into a much faster, much deadlier game.

MW:HD was born from a love of gaming, several boxes of free Mechwarrior pieces, and the desire to totally devastate each other.

As we say, "Invite a friend over, and nuke him. That's what life is all about!"

Episodes will talk about the rulebook, and give detailed instructions on the rules, and how the affect other rules. We will talk strategies, and have in depth unit reviews, explaining the unit's abilities, short falls, and how to use it effectively in a game.

Episode 1 only features Clay, as Ken and Dave are working on getting the equipment and time necessary to record. Clay talks about why he plays and a few of the rule changes. There are 3 unit reviews at the end.

The units reviewed on this podcast are:
AOD Blade #089
Wolfstrike Patrisan AA Vehicle #033
Annihilation Ravager #017

Next episode will begin the description of our rules, and how they work to make the game exciting! Also, expect more unit reviews.
