VPR Cast#36: ”Central Seduction”

Welcome to our 36th mmo podcast at mmoSmacktalk.com! Vince pulls in a classic clean mmo smacktalk podcast. The topics range from WAR to Diablo 3, with a sprinkling of DFO and L2. So sit back, chillax, and enjoy. (Limited snark, lots of laze in this posting.)

Last cast announced the release of our unformatted news site. Consequently that site has had the be-Jesus spammed out of it. The side affects are two fold: 1.) We have made more money 😀 (which is good), 2.) We have irrelevant spams related to everything but mmo’s (this is bad). The built in tools to deal with spam suck ass, so thanks for nothing Social Web CMS :D! As a result I will probably take it down. Let me know if you think we should keep up the good fight and spend time to code our own tools, or not. At this time, as far as I can tell the initial interest is limited, which means my interest to fix it is limited.

    Welcome to our 35th mmo podcast at mmoSmacktalk.com! Ben brings us in and asks his Mother if he could play some warhammer online. We cover a lot of ground to include an introduction of the legacy of Sforce, bane of Blackrock (WoW), video game awards and more!

    We also have some minor notes about an addition to the site. Basically check out the link under “more SMACKTALK“. We added a listener news site, where anybody can post links to what is happening in the world of MMO’s. Try it out let us know what you think. Also, keep in mind, it’s not styled or formatted yet. We thought it’d be more important to just get the feature out :D.

    We will not be casting until the week of 5 Jan 09, however content will be updated to this blog as well as the news site… so check back for non cast content.

    VPR Cast#29: “Warhammer – Cookie Cutters Gone Wild!

    Welcome to our 29th cast at mmoSmacktalk.com! Peter rejoins the podcast as we go waaaay off topic. We hit some Warhammeronline, talk about grind burn and the the lack of robust compelling features to continue WAR longterm (really for pvpers). Also, you’re in luck, we explore our culinary pleasures with a debate on Taco Bell, Del Taco, and El Pollo loco.

    1st Segment: Who has what kind of character and at what level? Who’s feeling the grind burn? Ben eats El Pollo Loco. Warhammer… still compelling? Cookie cutters gone wild… where’s the true uniqueness (WAR)?

    2nd Segment: Starts off attempting to wrap up the end of segment 1. El Pollo Loco takes on Taco Bell.
    Vincent had mouth cancer, an abortion, …? Love to love Chevy’s salsa. Ben’s a real man, as proven by his love of pink tacos. What’s up with Norwegian food 😀 ? Paul experiences crack at Yum Yum Donuts.

    3rd Segment: This segment kicks off with a little Dream Theater… not bad for a band we’ve never heard of… Paul tells a story about guns, gangsters, and the SJPD. Ryan tells a story about a petty car thief, and what it’s like to be a tiger. No games this segment.

    4th Segment: Ben had a story about a refrigerator. Ben talks gibberish about Karl Marx, hot karls, pale eyed thieves… who knows. Warhammer needs to let a few double entendres fly… damn!

    VPR Cast#28: “Enter… WAR Genius!”

    Welcome to our 28th cast at mmoSmacktalk.com! Vince spins big cheese and brings in the cast. Ryan is late, and Peter is absent. Many topics covered in Warhammer and some darkfall discussion as well. Strap in, strap on, and learn about a WAR genius.

    1st Segment: When you write a moral check, don’t be surprised if it’s denied. WoW, morale, pal, Palin, JOe the Plumber, and Paul. The warrior priest is disussed.

    2nd Segment: The topic of tactics changing in combat is concluded. Ben questions things that shouldn’t be questioned. Suffice it to say, he’s lucky Ryan isn’t there. Paul… speak into the mic, son!

    3rd Segment: Ryan bites into Ben. Kids, don’t listen. Too many bombs are dropped. Ben tells us about his nasty need to dual box or not play at all. The boys drop some smack on Mac. The MMO Imagineers™ get cracking again with another new idea… at least to Ryan.

    4th Segment: Another long ass segment ensues. Kicks off with wrapping up Ben’s thoughts, if you can call them that :D, about WAR’s two new classes. Somehow Witch Elves rule. We review one of the latest Darkfallonline.com preview videos from the Athen’s Digital Event. Looks like the sound from the link was too loud, so we are very faint in the background. Thanks… Vince! 😀 Ben and Ryan wrap up the segment with a painfully prolonged discussion of some DFO theories on tactics, weapons, and magic.

    VPR Cast#27: “The Sims go to WAR!”

    Welcome to our 27th cast at mmoSmacktalk.com! Paulicus brings us in to a long diverse cast. This cast is hot, get it while you can!

    1st Segment:Paul badmouths the Warhammer mail system… Ryan joins in; AND Ben’s manhood is questioned to boot. We begin reading listener comments.

    2nd Segment: Listener mail/comments reading continued. We touch on buying items/gold from the mmo vendor, and or Ebay players. Ryan mentions his turn offs in WAR, such as no in game smack talk. Some of the user comments get us to discuss more Darkfallonline.

    3rd Segment: Ryan slam’s the claustrophobia of WAR (he’s only level 20 though). The smacktalk imagineers™ get to work on how to make WAR pvp a tad better. Some WAR tactics are discussed… thanks to the beautiful implementation of collision detection.

    4th Segment: Grab the hand rails to your mother’s basement, this segment is loooong ass! First we relive one of our favorite episodes of Crank Yankers…Batman’s nemesis 😀 Ryan follows up with some DFO scenario oriented concepts. Afterwords a beautiful discussion on Bright Wizards ensues between Vince and Bentannica.
