Episode 43 Posted
« on: March 20, 2006, 08:27:18 am »
Today is the first day of the Game Developers Conference, but before I even set foot into the convention center I got a chance to sit down and chat with Jeff Strain, Co-Founder of ArenaNet and makers of Guild Wars.

Jeff and I talk for over an hour and cover a huge number of topics. Find out how on earth they expect to release a brand new Guild Wars Campaign twice a year(!), more details on the technology behind ArenaNet, how they manage to continuously balance the game, Jeff's thoughts on various MMO subscription models, as well as much more. Enjoy!

Nice, I am listening it right now.

When you get to your 50th episode Make it like the opening to animaniacs and repeate all the, "The Man who's" you've done so far (And add a couple if you want)
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Thanks Steve! that was a good podcast interview. I'm sorry to say i don't think highly of guild wars, I even bought it to try it. I ran out of things to do, They did the exact opposite of Oblivion. They showed everyone a lush forest environment, Then Ripped it away!

The interview was awsome and I'm looking forward to picking up a copy of factions too.

That interview was very good - my copy of Guild Wars had been uninstalled but fired it back up straight after and have been enjoying it (for some reason) far more.

Nice one!
