The MMOsketeers #14: 2012-05-29

Despite the lack of big news – except for 38 Studios collapsing on itself – the Three MMOsketeers still enjoy talking on the Internet. So here’s a brand new episode for your listening pleasure.

So what did happen this week? Well, there was the whole 38 Studios shebang, which is of course sad – especially for all the people suddenly out of jobs. Then Embers of Caerus hit their Kickstarter-goal, Arenanet announced another beta weekend for Guild Wars 2 and The Secret World got moved back a bit. The whole lore behind the latter got the Arkenor/Teppotastic-treatment this week, which begs the question what a pure Lovecraftian MMO would look like. Vanity payments for getting that perfect set of white hair for your character stuck in a mental institution, perhaps?

Arkenor is also paying someone a lot of money to pew pew him in the eyes. As a bonus, a listener has shared a romantic story about listening to the podcast in the bath. It’s truly a beautiful story.
