Podcast: VirginWorlds #147
Release Date: 16 May 2010
After almost a year's absence, Brent has published a new episode of the VirginWorlds podcast. With an assist from Darren Love from VirginWorlds.com podcast Shut Up. We're Talking, Brent begins the podcast by explaining why the long drought in podcasts and what the future may hold for the VirginWorlds podcast. Brent asked a good question in whether the old format is now relevant with the emergence of Massively Speaking and Van Hemlock filling the void of MMORPG weekly news when Brent stopped the podcast.
As is usual with a VirginWorlds podcast, Brent and Darren went though a lot of games. This episode's list included Age of Conan, Dungeons and Dragons Online, EverQuest II, Guild Wars 2, Sword of the New World 2, Eve Online, Warhammer Online, Moonlight Online, Mortal Online, Planetside, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Super Hero Squad Online and Warhammer 40K MMO. For me, the biggest news was the leak of the name of the next EQ2 expansion and that EA will probably not release The Old Republic in fiscal year 2011. This may come as a bit of a surprise considering that back in January the developers were looking to release the game in the first quarter of 2011. So if you want to get into the Star Wars universe, Star Wars: Galaxies is still the only game in the MMORPG genre.
I'll definitely look forward to the next VirginWorlds podcast to see what direction Brent takes the podcast.
