The Multiverse – Episode #21: “Overhauls for Cash”

Hot on the heels of Episode 20, we bring you the next installment: Overhauls for Cash! For those that are a little confused, this is our normal weekly episode, on time and featuring the news and topics arising from the last week.

Our topic for this show is MMO overhauls. We’ve all seen it happen. An MMO suddenly pulls up roots and changes itself to match the market trend. It started with SWG and it continues with Global Agenda. The question is, is it a good thing or a bad thing? We also spend a little time talking about MMOs that we think desperately need an overhaul and what we’d do with them.

And we have tangents, but you’re used to that by now ;-)

To the notes!
