YAYAYAY – Happy Cinco De Mayo! *takes a shot*
Tonight, May 5th 2015, we’ll be drinking, probably drunk-streaming, and counting down to the Heroes Of The Storm open beta on May 19th. We’re counting down to the big Heroes Of The Storm full launch on June 2nd 2015, too. Lots of Blizzard fanboy status going on. Plus it’s a good excuse to drink if you’re of age. Who’s with us?
In our May 4th/5th The G.A.N.G. Minute vlog, we discuss tons of great stuff, including:
- Yogizilla returns to streaming?

- Back on Hearthstone, SolForge, Scrolls, and indie games for the strum, yo.

Read on for more info on our Cinco De Mayo gaming and drinking plans!
Anyway, for our Cinco De Mayo virtual party, we’ll be returning to our roots in deckbuilding and indie games. I, Yogizilla, will be playing Hearthstone mainly, perhaps splashing in some Scrolls and SolForge. Got to get my Blackrock Mountain on, y0!
Not only are we celebrating a ramp-up in streaming and podcasting, but also our never-ending love for Blizzard games. Heroes Of The Storm and Hearthstone HYPE!
Remember: we are exactly two weeks out from the open beta for HotS. You can join us now. We have Heroes Of The Storm beta keys for our friends. Come and get them!
After the main stream event ends, there will likely be GTA V, CS:GO, and, of course, Heroes Of The Storm! If you’re still not in on the closed beta, we have keys. Get in before the salty dogs invade our happy little community. Make sure you register on GeekyAntics.net and join us in the forums. We’d love to get to know you!
The stream should start around 9pm EST / 6pm PST, assuming I’m not put on cooking/clean-up duty again (family is OP). It’s going to be a late-night regardless. Our friends at TheWorstRadioShow (Worst Radio Show Podcast) will also be doing a Cinco De Mayo Stream. Destiny and Mortal Kombat X are currently on rotation.
See you tonight – 18 and over only (21 to drink), please!
