The first Odds & Ends from The Mana Pool is going to be available to everyone, not just Patreon patrons, so everyone knows what they're going to be getting or what they'll be missing. They won't all be this long and rambling, but I can assure you some of them will be. Feel free to let me know what you think!
It starts with Brian explaining why he's late (it was Olive Garden). We then spend some time talking Hearthstone and Final Fantasy Record Keeper while Dirk catches up on the topic of the day. Then the show happens, which you can hear over on TheManaPool.com.
Then we cut to after the show! Dirk and Brian left during the final thoughts, so Mike & I spend a LONG time shooting the breeze about lots of things while I work on getting the show posted. Mike talks about Game Day (such as it was) and possibly building a new deck for Modern. Then there's a lot more Hearthstone talk (of course) discussing the new aggressive metagame among other things.
After that we move into my Five Nights at Freddy's videos, which you should totally all be watching anyway, and the lore and mechanics of those games. From there we bounce around to other topics from driving to Binding of Isaac to complete nonsense like HuniePop. Yes I played it, don't judge me!
After that there's a bit of university nostalgia, YouTube whatnot, show naming, more Hearthstone, podcast nostalgia, and we end on a quick discussion about Soma, the new game by Frictional Games. And yes, that's EXACTLY where Mike fell off the call, I didn't have to do any editing at all.
