    Okay, this was probably one of my new favorite podcasts, right behind the one guest-starring the PvP devs. ;)

    I really strongly agree about the attention to giving the humans of both sides INTERESTING lore. So often in games I play anything BUT humans because they're just that. Boring, predictable, traditional humans. They don't have any neat visual style going for them or notable culture that catches my attention. With Wildstar, the Exile humans in particular caught my interest with that Firefly/Han Solo-esque scruffy band-of-misfits style.

    While Cassian won't be one I'll likely be playing, I still find the lore behind them really fascinating. It's so fun to see other people create characters steeped in this lore and that mind-set. *COUGH*Hawkens*COUGH* :inlove:

    Third playable faction: Dregg and Protostar team up! It's the buddy-cop faction, each Dregg is paired up with a Protostar rep. They fight crime.

    I'm going Explorer as my main Path, for sure. It was pretty much the reasons Ender brought up - I explore anyways in the games I play, but getting EXTRA stuff to see? And rewards for it? Hell yeah!

    Guuuuys. Stop giving me character concept ideas. I do NOT need a Granok scientist. D: That sounds so amazing.

    Ffff *flail* You guys made me blush. Thank you for enjoying my art!

    Booze is a valid and noble goal. *nod*

    Thank you for a VERY enjoyable evening! Was a pleasure listening to all of you. ;)

    Great episode, but something just didn't quite feel right without Azzurri. Here's to hoping the next isn't "Azzurriless". :D

    Good podcast, a lot of good information. The only thing I don't like is how biased they seem to be for the game. They talk like the game is going to be perfect and have no flaws. Other than that I enjoyed it.

    We talked largely about lore in this episode. Listen to any of the past episodes and I think you'll be satisfied that we're not just bumbling fanboys :)

    America's favorite segment really stole the show this episode. Everyone was in top form.

    Loved everything in the podcast, path specific mounts sounds so awesome.

    -Scientist could find a unknown piece of technology unlock it as a vehicle and through path questing can learn more about it and search for upgrade parts.

    -Settler find parts to build and upgrade, pretty straight forward.

    -Solider, who wouldn't want to tame a big beast instead of killing it, and riding it around. Assassination a leader and steal his ride straight out of his base.

    -Explorer, could work the same as scientist except instead of learning about the things they find, they sort of throw them all together until it works.

    Just a few ideas :)
