Three years ago Liore, Arolaide, and special co-host Corranhorn were pretty serious business MMO players. Today, all three of us have scaled our MMO participation down considerably, if indeed we’re playing one at all. So what happened, and are we just part of a general trend away from MMOs? Does the genre even mean anything today? Are MMOs for old people? Can there ever be another WoW-like behemoth?
Because staying on topic is hard, we also briefly discuss SWTOR’s move to free-to-play and why EA are big jerks, as well as how much we hate daily quests. (Hint: it’s a lot.) Additionally we lament our gaming budgets and the Steam Autumn sale: we already have more games than we could ever truly play, and yet we can’t resist good deals!
Note that Aro had a fantastic rant about how it’s disrespectful to call Optimus Prime just “Optimus”, but her microphone went robot and I had to cut it out. It is a loss for us all.
