MMOs and New Gamers – Ep 19

MMOs and New Gamers – Ep 19

This week we welcome a new member of the cast, Shawn. He is gracious enough to allow us to record at his house during the summer (thus keeping us from killing each other in a heat induced psychotic outburst).

 

Our topic is MMO’s (Massive Multi-player Online games… for those who don’t understand nerd) which is something that the gaming community is split on, some love it and some revile it. But, love them or hate them they certainly have changed table-top roleplaying forever.
