We create reality, reality does not create us. Thus is the question, if we stop beleving in reality, then what are our limitations on pursuing our dreams?

Ah yeah, I just checked it out. Somehow the game file got corrupted and didn't get into the final file. I'm redoing it now, I'll let you know when it's up.

Darn! I was hoping to pitch this to you before the next podcast but perhaps you could address some of the ideas on the forums and put some of your personal knowledge of games into a realistic expectation or scope, perspective.. something.

AKA address the Everything Syndrome.

You mentioned that there's no test server for WoW, but they've had one up for awhile. (They tested the last patch on it.) :)

Great podcast... thanks for eating away at 92 minutes of my Good Friday, Steve!  Keep it up.  And yes, those cons in WoW are exactly the things that turned me away and made me cancel my account... there's nothing to do after 40 and you HAVE to group.  If i want to play some massive battlegrounds or something i will play Rome: Total War and do an epic custom battle.

Doh! I am surprised that I missed that one. Nobody in my guild even knew about this! And even my friends at Blizzard didn't know (they only know what they're working on)! Damn, big miss. I'll mention it in the next podcast.

That was a great podcast, Steve. I especially liked the part about the possibility of game employees being unionized. I see someone already mentioned the test server. A lot of people in my guild got invites to the server (I think it's invite-only, and only allows lvl 60s) so I was surprised that no-one in your guild heard about it. *shrug*

I haven't hit 40 yet, so it's still smooth sailing. I am excited for battlegrounds, though. It seems like they're trying to make players feel like they're a unit in the Warcraft RTS games, with guard towers full of archers dotting the landscape, as well as other conquerable/sackable buildings. So exciting. ;D

Acutally, I believe it. These guys are so freaking hardcore they don't have time for a test server. They probably heard about it but had zero interest in it. So I never heard about it.

Thanks for the feedback on the game employees unionized section. I actually cut that out after I recorded it figuring who the heck cares about this subject or what I think of it? But I put it back in at the last second. The main reason it because overworked game designers is a huge problem and every one I know who works in the industry talks about this all the time. And I think it's going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

If you want to hear any other subjects covered, let me know!

Well, personally I'd like to hear anything about game employees/development. To me that is what an 'inside-reporter' is all about, and since you seem to have a lot of connections in the gaming industry I imagine those kind of stories to be 'the real scoop,' so to speak. The game reviews are great, of course, but stories about employees and the business as a whole are hard to come by.

The school I go to offers degrees in this field (my degree will be in Digital Arts and Animation, with a minor in Game Design and Interactivity) and I have made plans to enter this industry (or film) within the next 5 years, so this kind of stuff really sparks my interest because I just might be in the thick of it before too long.

Then again, you seem to have found a great balance between game news (previews, reviews, random game tidbits) and gaming news (news about gaming culture and the industry) already, so what am I talking for? :P

great podcast.  I've checked out a bunch of different gaming podcasts and this was the best one i've found so far.  I do recommend staying away from Gamer's Radio though...

WoW looks really good, but I think I'll wait until Battlegrounds comes out to get it.

Also, I was amazed when I realized that I actually knew the "Name That Game" for this week.

These podcasts are excellent, Steve.  You have officially taken up my entire commute home when I get a new one, so congrats.   ;D

First heard you on the Spore podcast and loved it.  Glad to find an actual *good* podcast again.

Now, about this podcast:

Great points on WoW.  I'm still only level 17 so I'm enjoying all of it.  The issue with the higher levels is pretty bad news though.  I recently played the beta of Guild Wars and one of the things I loved about it is that you can pick up NPCs for party members.

Very very cool.

No more waiting around to party up.  Just pick up the 4 NPCs you want before you go on a quest and you're set.

WoW should impliment someting similar.

I can listen to my ipod at work (im doin data entry at the moment :()
and I love listening to your podcast, Ive only had my ipod for a few weeks, so podcasts are still a 'new' thing for me, but out of the handful ive listened to, your podcast, steve, is brillant!
I would gladly welcome a podcast that lasts several hours :) but you probably wouldnt, lol.

thanks
