Come Take a Look at a Former Troll in the Corner Writer/Editor’s New Let’s Play Channel

Hey Troll Fans, it’s been far too long!Those who may remember the early days of the site know that I used to post here as Nundahl many moons ago.  I hit a point where work/life balance just made it too much to continue writing for Troll in the Corner and over time we drifted apart.  This makes me sad.

Lately, my brother and I have started a new project – and it may be a little less intellectual and a little less tabletop gaming related, but it’s still a lot of fun.

I’d love it if you’d give us a look, I’ll link two videos below for your convenience and if you enjoy it, maybe pop over and give us a Subscribe!

Thanks so much everybody and thanks to Ben for letting me do some ugly self promotion!

Naval-TC

Due to illness and scheduling conflicts Aaron Bostian couldn’t do the show. So, NO NEW EPISODE right now. To make up for it we’re sharing this episode from the vault. The classic episode comes to you from the dark ages where the show had a different name. Since this is a CLASSIC episode some of the links, content, giveaways, contests etc may be out of date or ended.

Don’t worry! Next time we’ll be back with a NEW episode of Wargaming Recon.

Host Jonathan J. Reinhart releases a short show discussing some collectible miniatures (War at Sea and World of Warcraft). The highlight of the show is coverage for TotalCon 2008. This marks the first time Jonathan discussed TotalCon on the show.

Age of Empires 2 HD – Wargaming Recon #116

Age of Empires 2 HD

Almost 20 years ago Microsoft released one of the most incredible real time strategy (RTS) computer games ever. More recently they updated and optimized the classic Age of Empires (AoE) 2 to work on modern computers. Age of Empires 2 HD is quite a game.

For a limited time you can purchase it for $2.49 (regularly $9.99) via Steam. If you do, be sure to look us up on Steam. Our username is WargamingRecon. We’d love to game with you and relive the days of hearing “Monk…I need a monk” and “Long time no siege” while playing Age of Empires.

We apologize that our scheduled guest, Steven MacLauchlan, does not appear in this episode. He needed to cancel for personal reasons. We’re working to reschedule him to come on an episode sometime in September 2014.

Wargaming Recon #103: 25hr Game-a-thon for Children’s Hospital

25 Hour Game-a-thon for Children’s Hospital

Can gaming help those in need? The answer is a resounding YES! Each year the Extra Life organization puts on a game-a-thon where gamers, like you and me, play games for 24 hours to raise money for their local children’s hospital. All of the proceeds from the event go directly to the designated hospital.

The funds are used to provide medical care for kids whose families otherwise could not afford the help.

Listen to this episode to learn more about this great cause, discover some cool new games, and maybe you will be empowered to participate next year!

GE39: 5 Reasons to Play Prison Architect

Sponsor Post: Minecraft the experience and finding a great server through MinePick

village

Minecraft. If you haven’t heard about it you must have lived in a cave for the last four years as it’s daily written about on different sites all around the web. The main reason why it’s so popular is of course that it’s an awesome game. An other reason is most likely because it was created by only one person from the start and became such a wonderful success story.

Minecraft servers
Minecraft is an on-going developing game and not long ago Minecraft reached a new milestone – 20 million registered users. As the game grows more game servers are created. Currently there are thousands of servers out there, some more active than others. This really creates a need for server lists to be created in order to keep track on every one of them. MinePick is one such server list. It’s fairly new but is growing quickly. The main goal is to offer Minecraft owners a website where they can submit their servers for free and give Minecraft players servers to play on. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.

You can play Minecraft both online and offline. If you choose to play online there are many different servers to choose to play on. Each server usually offer something unique. There are servers that focus wholeheartedly on PvP while others focus on building. There is really something for everyone.

You can of course also host your own server. To get it going it’s recommended submitting it to MinePick as that’s a free source for new players on your server. However, if you want your server to reach the top rankings in the list it requires it to get many votes. As Minecraft players are usually quite lazy and do not vote for nothing you can use a Minecraft plugin called Votifier. It allows you to give your players in-game benefits as they vote. As you get more votes and reach higher rankings you feed your players with happiness through rewards in-game.

What is Minecraft about?
There is no specific goal in Minecraft you must achieve in order to win. The possibility to win doesn’t even exist as it’s a game where you are set in a world where you decide what you want to do with the time you spend in-game. The world is made of cubic blocks you can destroy or pick up which you can use to build things in-game.

If you want to be able to play Minecraft online you must first buy a copy of the game. It can be done by visiting Minecraft’s official website and it costs currently 19.95 euro. Once you have purchased the game you will have a lifelong membership with free updates of the game. Very cheap compared to other games out there.
