Claims of the Normal #51: 2011-08-28

This week’s episode of Claims of the Normal seemed to be all about the MMO games we’ve learned to love and hate.

Arkenor brought us some bad news from the latest update to Everquest 2, Petter quit his job (which involves reviewing MMO games, so there is a connection!) and I … Well; I didn’t play too much of any MMO lately, since I’ve fallen in love with Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

Quiz Kids today came from Jon Broadley, and this means we’ve now exhausted our backlog of questions! Send more in, people! You know where to find us.

Claims of the Normal

Claims of the Normal was the first show to launch on the CSICON Network. Originally intended as the only show to run on the website (the 'con' in CSICON stands for Claims of the Normal, after all), it quickly became the launch vehicle for so much more. Breki and Petter started the show, and got Arkenor on board, and it all just went from there.

The show, over time, was replaced by The MMOsketeers, starring Petter, Arkenor and Teppo, as well as Instanews, starring Breki and Jack. None of these shows exist in their original form, but the legacy created by Claims of the Normal lives on.
