Week of: May 21 – May 28, 2012
This week I am joined by a new voice to the program, Elke, as
we discuss Star Wars: The Old Republic and MMORPG gaming, as we put
our full-frontal nerdery on display.
As a lifelong gamer, I have always avoided the world of
Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games (MMORPG) due to the
“time-suck” associated with them. However, as a life long Star Wars
fan, the draw of a game dedicated to its universe was simply too
hard to pass up.
On this week’s show, we cover two different perspectives from
both a relative noob to the genre (yours truly) and the battle
hardened experience of an MMO veteran, Elke. Therefore we tried to
make the discussion accessible to both new players or those
interested in trying the game, as well as to appeal to those who
have been playing MMO’s for many years. Sprinkled throughout this
geek fest is also some W.o.W and Diablo 3 chat.
