There's no release date yet, but we included a small status update in our PAX recap blog post just now:

Boooo! For those of us outside the US, don't forget that their clocks went forward while ours didn't, check your time against a world clock to be sure to be there at the right bat-time!

For extra-confusing fun, notice that the subject indicates that the time is 8 EST (what it would have been if there were no daylight savings time), not 8 EDT (the adjusted time during Daylight Savings Time, which is currently the more relevant one).

If I permanently moved to another state that would be the one.

Normally I just say "Eastern" to avoid the whole thing. Updated for next week with that in mind, thanks!

If you want to catch our daylight saving time rant, check out the twitch highlight now linked in the OP =)

Next week is St. Patrick's Day! Sentinels drinking game???

Actually, not all of the world does. (Check out this entertainingly informational video about the origins and current state of DST.)

 

Yeah, I'm only a lot against DST...

I'd like to see someplace just alter their timezone to be a permanent DST.  If the numbers justify the DST and the biggest problem is the switch, shouldn't making the hours naturally 1 later be a better solution?

Personally I don't care, I just hate the jet lag effect of losing an hour.

I don't mind daylight savings time.  I like it when it's still light at 9pm.

love the new features. Would love to see an option to randomize various things like heroes only. Also I know everyone says it so multiplayer.

Quick question though. Are you guys planning to break vengance up like have the heroes and environments come out earlier since those can be played in the regular game mode or everything from vengance will be in the vengance expansion and we will have to play with those heroes outside of chronological order.

 

Also would love a sentinel tactics app :P


My wife thinks Sentinels is ruining our marriage. I think she doesnt know what shes talking about because she wont sit down to play it

I tried once. I told Fright Train Blade was making fun of him, but they are still working together.

I actually really like DST. It's standard time that I hate. And the switching that it involves.

Sadly, it looks like I'm going to miss it. It's four hours away and I'm already exhausted.

I'll watch the video, but that's not the same. :(


Just assume I'm always doing that.

Damn it, Ronway!

Those people who went to sleep early missed out on "seeing" Christopher play in 2 nail biting games!

Fun was had! Toxic Damage was dealt! Characters were incapped! Forumites' names were mentioned!

Typical. I need to sleep, and miss Christopher. SAD FACE.

Irritatingly enough, I didn't even get good sleep.

Soooooo twitch.tv had a security breach and everyone's passwords & stream keys are reset. 

Details: http://blog.twitch.tv/2015/03/important-notice-about-your-twitch-account/

#1 - go reset your password

#2 - there may not be a Handelabra stream this week, because Jeremy runs the account and is currently on a magical mystery voyage

I'll know for sure what's up later on Tuesday.

I was watching, sadly I can't watch and chat on my tablet, but it was awesome with Adam on the stream.

Great game, great video, and Rook City looks gorgeous.  Can't wait.

So with Rook City out on certain platforms already, tonight's stream will show us all the Infernal Relics stuff, right?

How did you guys like the GloomWeaver preview?

We just played our first full-team internal multiplayer test this afternoon, so that might be ready to demo on the stream soon.
