- No Point, but 50 Novels Deep – We talk about some comments coming out of BioWare, the first being that MMOs really don’t seem to have a point (and they’re going to fix that) and the second that Star Wars: The Old Republic is going to have 50 novels worth of “story” in the game. We all seem to agree that something claiming to be a virtual world ought to have many diversions beyond a main story and wonder how SWTOR is really going to feel. After all, the best stories in these games are often the personal ones, the things that happen to us.
- Free to Play in Middle-earth – The big news about Turbine moving Lord of the Rings Online to a free to play business model bumped the previously planned topic. We talk about what it means to the current community, what appeals to us, and what might be coming to the Middle-earth cash shop.
