Witty Ranter #7

Last week Adam, the host of the Witty Ranter podcast, invited myself, Darren from The Common Sense Gamer and Shut Up We’re Talking, Brenden from Another Here, Peter from The Addicted Gamer, and Crovan from The Bitter Old Noob and The Drone Bay podcast to get together with him on Skype and do one of his famous discussion shows.

The show topic was presented as:

We’re the game design team, we’re given 50 million to make our own MMO. Flesh out the MMO as a show topic.

And so off we went, limiting ourselves to some specific areas of MMO design, including genre and business model.

What we ended up with… well… stronger voices prevailed and some old farts and polite Canadians might not have ended up agreeing with certain aspects of the result. Still, we all had fun.

So if you want to hear six blind men arguing over the design of an elephant, now is your chance.

Witty Ranter is part of the prestigious VirginWorlds Podcast Collective.

You can find episode #7 here or on iTunes.

    By far the best part of the show “You guys are just redesigning EVE” repeated over and over. The thing most people hate to admit is that EVE nails most design-related issues spot on, but misses that hidden ‘fun’ component that Blizzard has a monopoly on. So odd…

    Great show!

    Pssstt! It’s Crovan with an “a” not an “e”. He puts on purple shorts, turns green and big and…. when we misspell his name!

    Anyways, that’s what the Japanese tell me!

    fixed, thanks for the tip. I would not want that purple shorts metamorphosis on my conscience.

    I took the spelling from the show notes.

    That’s what I get for trusting that Adem guy!

    That’s what I get for letting some old fart from Californi-eh onto my show! We’ll just see about you getting another invite!

    It was a blast having ya John, I’m sure you’ll be back again!
