The MMOsketeers #24: 2012-08-28

59 mins - Published Tue, Aug 28, 2012 by Arkenor Oakshadow, Petter Mårtensson and Teppo Tastic

It took some digging, but after a valiant effort Petter and Teppo managed to pull out Arkenor from his underground dwarven fortress. It was a jolly time, since what is arguably the biggest MMO of the year has just been released – Guild Wars 2.

So with the three MMOsketeers playing (or at least two, with one lost at the character creation screen), that very game needs to be discussed. It’s a thing, we hear, so we probably better. If you never liked Guild Wars, will you enjoy Guild Wars 2? Lucky you that we’re here to answer those hard questions! But that’s not everything – The Secret World‘s sales numbers are important to discuss, and so are the news that the ProSiebenSat.1 migration for European Everquest 2 players have been delayed and the question if the subscription model is finally dead and buried or not. The SWGemu does a cameo as well.

And beards.

(We are aware of, and sorry for, some sound issues during this episode.)
