John gives a shout-out to our fellow VirginWorlds podcasts - Van Hemlock, Massively Speaking, Spouse Aggroand new kid on the block, Through the Aftermath (which John may or may not be appearing on).
get a bit off-topic when Stephen wants to know what 'Books' are in The
Lord of the Rings Online, and John feels obliged to explain. However!
We're soon back to talking about City of Heroes - did you know there's
a Double XP Weekend looming??
John's getting excited about DC
Universe Online, but we can't agree on exactly how it's going to work -
or whether it's going to be any good. Three classes in one? Stances?
It's all very confusing.
That naturally leads to the age-old
question - can any MMO work on a console? Maybe... whatever happens,
Stephen thinks DCUO's going to get complained about, and John is either
getting old or just likes the new shiny consoles.
Next, John and Matt both want to rave about the Cartoon Network FusionFall MMO,
which you could be playing right now! In your browser! Sadly coverage
of FusionFall has generated some shortsighted comments from the MMO
community, which we can't help but mention.
Matt got around to watching The League, and we want you to watch it too! Not least because we're going to get director/writer Kyle Higgins on the show, so send your questions in to podcast AT yellowspandex.com
John also has a confession to make: he's become a TABLETOP ROLEPLAYER. Not to be confused with the live-action breed.
doesn't want to talk about Richard Garriott. Stephen would prefer to
talk about Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's Punisher: War Zone, but
frankly, all of us would prefer to talk about Watchmen. Are you as
excited as us yet? If not, check out the updated movie site and the New Frontiersman too. See if you get the same reaction as John.
Smallville showcases the Legion of Superheroes, which leads to another
confession from John. It's a true confessions show!
