Rift Reforged: Episode 15: Planes, Trains and Hoverbikes!

November 30th, 2014 Posted by Podcasts, Rift Reforged - A Rift Podcast No Comment yet

American Thanksgiving is this week, and it’s a case of “first the show, then head madly off in all directions” for Reforged. We’re talking week-in-game, some hotfixes, and there are some data-mined teasers to throw in, too. Kendo has the minion up-date that we promised last week, TG is talking Ranger, and Enikki helps us get to know the back-story of Kira Thanos and Uriel Chuluun.
Just one more week until Captain Cursor!

Rift Reforged: Episode 9: Almost There! (Dedicated to Manhuntar)

October 19th, 2014 Posted by Podcasts, Rift Reforged - A Rift Podcast No Comment yet

Nightmare Tide expansion is so close we can taste it! Listen along as Enikki gets her Physician dungeon-ready, TG shares his comparative analysis of gear types in 3.0. and Kendo gives his final pre-launch report on how Rift crafters can actually come out ahead in 3.0 by holding back on advancing their professions, for a while. We’ve got highlights from Trion’s livestream (event lures are coming!!!)and Liiska herds the team in the general direction of ‘onward’, all the while enduring teasing about her pants and her bags (yes, again. Sigh.) Oh — and this week’s lore segment brings us the meeting between The Faceless Man and Akylios — this one is NOT for the faint of heart, kiddoes!

October 6th, 2014 Posted by Podcasts, Rift Reforged - A Rift Podcast No Comment yet

The open beta for 3.0 finally arrived —- AND Trion has postponed the launch to Oct 22nd. Doesn’t matter — Reforged dove right in. Of course, all kinds of shenanigans ensued — so tune in and come along for the ride! We’ll tell you what to expect from the 3.0 crafting process, the new starter-zone mobs, and sudden gear upgrades (TG is taking that last one kinda hard). Plus, Kendo gives us the next chapter in his crafting primer –the basics of Armorsmithing – and Enikki takes us back in lore to a vivid view of the ghastly Lady Glasya. Shivers!

Sunday Sept 7, 2014

When Nightmare Tide launches Oct 8th , the expansion itself will be 100% free — just like all of Rift’s existing content. Buuuut —for anyone interested in adding more goodies to the game, Trion has released THREE Digital Editions, all purchasable through Glyph. What’s in the D.E.’s? Are they worth it? Listen to the Reforged crew as they unpack it all, item by item, and give you their take on what it all means. Plus, we have regular Rift news, listener mail, Dreamweaving from the Workbench, more lore from our in-house historian, Enikki, and, of course — more glorious Trivia!! (Who knew Alsbeth actually had a family?)

Farewell to Rift: For Now

May 4th, 2014 Posted by News Archive 4 comments

By now the news that the cancelation of “Rift Off the Record” has reached you. As the owner and producer of Quest Gaming Network, you should know that this decision wasn’t made lightly nor was it made alone or on a whim.

About a week ago, Liz, Rage and I sat down to talk about some personal schedule issues they had in regards to the show. Without getting into too much detail about the host’s personal lives, we found ourselves in a position where we had a choice:

1. Record Rift OTR sporadically when chaotic and constantly shifting work schedules can allow
2. Put the show on indefinite hiatus, so at least the Rift community had something worth looking forward to
3. Cancel the show outright

Neither of which sounded like a good option, especially when QGN has a large fan community who, it might be a good idea to put out a call for hosts and have come onto the network to do the show.

On paper, especially when faced with outright cancelation, calling for more podcast hosts sounds like a good idea. However, then we have a lot of other logistical concerns to factor in. Podcasting takes into account many factors, and whereas it sounds like anyone can get on a mic and do it, you need a skillset that either comes with experience or natural talent to make a “Good” podcast, one worth listening to. Not to mention, even though the right person, or two, may answer up for the job, they need equipment, time, knowledge about Rift, time to play the game, enthusiasm and chemistry between each other. If these things don’t already exist in the network, its very difficult to find among the community, with all or one of those qualifications being a major issue that tends to disqualify a person.

In short…it takes a long time to find podcast hosts. That in and of itself is not much of an issue, but to state publicly “Hey guys, the hosts of Rift OTR no longer have time to do the show, so we’re looking for new hosts and until then, we’re just not going to do the show” is ‘half-assing it’. We owe the Rift community more than that. The natural and most dignified choice became the one choice we didn’t want to look at: Cancelation.

So, it is with great regret that I announce the cancelation of “Rift Off the Record”. In many ways, this is a show that’s being canceled before its time…but then, so was “SWTOR Reforged”, and you can never truly keep a good man down. Nothing at QGN is impossible and we’re keeping a vigilant eye, behind the scenes, to find a way to service the Rift community. However, without anything definite, this will be the end of QGN’s coverage for Rift.

The final episode of “Rift Off the Record” will be recorded on Wednesday night, May 7th on the Quest Gaming Network Twitch Channel

The official time is still pending, but watch our twitter for the official announcement this week

Rift: Off the Record 24: “The More You Know”

March 21st, 2014 Posted by Rift News Archive No Comment yet

The streams have crossed, my friends. FOUR events (well, 3 plus a “Promo Week”) were going on all at once. Liz & Rage were like Hogwarts Students in Honeydukes, salivating for it all.. except for those big Mech Mounts.

However, if you like dressing up like Optimus Prime, we’ll tell you how to get one of your very own. That’s how nice we are.

Oh… and Eighties references. A LOT of them. You’re welcome.
