The MMOG Nation Broadcast #1
Sat, 9 Feb 2008 22:28:00 GMT [download/play]



The MMOG Nation Broadcast kicks off with an ill-considered knee-jerk reaction to recent bagging on Warhammer Online. Michael defends the works of brave designers and a soulless corporation from thoughtful commentators and self-entitled bloggers.

The complainers:
- Game|Life
- Random Battle

Fellow defenders:
- Heartless
- Julie Whitefeather

What a great podcast...and my kind of podcast. Having received notice from Michael Zenke is like hitting the big time - truly (no joke). If I can EVER get the technical end of podcasting down (help!) I hope to bring out my own short form podcast - truly inspirational stuff thanks!

Not good - lasted 90 seconds before switching off.

Patronizing, teenage expletives, dodgy rock music....learnt nothing

I'll try No.2, I guess...

A bit short, but I appreciated the subject. I'm tired of the "why do they even bother?" comments from people who seem to think the MMO industry is solely occupied by World of Warcraft. Some people enjoy a different game from time to time. Some people enjoy a different game with barbecue and lettuce as well.

Mr. Zenke, I think you have the defining subtitle for the podcast now!

Face the Nation
Patronizing, teenage expletives, and dodgy rock music... plus something about MMOs!

Run with it!

My Zenke fanboi-ism aside, I really enjoyed these first 2 episodes.

I'm glad you decided to go through with making the podcast, Michael. And I look forward to many more!

Just started listening. Started off with some intelligent comparisons of WoW and WAR and ended with the best rant I have ever heard. Good mix of humor and insight. very fun to listen too.

Looking forward to the rest.

Very very nice. This episode is one I've kept on my player and listen to over and over again.
