    In level 36 we recap our glorious invasion of Pax over in Seattle. We briefly touch base on what we did in the first part of the show and the second part is an excellent interview with Carbine's Senior Narrative Designer Cory Herndon.

    Thank you man! We appreciate it.

    It was quite a rush to interview Cory and be able to have a drink with him later that night was some sort of epic.

    Yeah it was a lot of fun. His was the only picture we didn't grab because we were going to wait and grab a shot with Phineous. Then drunk happened. It's actually quite insightful and provides an example of a fairly non traditional path to becoming a dev.

    I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the interview, and wish that you could have gone on talking with him for much longer than the allotted time. Anytime that the developers are allowed to speak like humans as opposed to the PR Marketing face is so refreshing. Team Wildstar has to do some of that, but they are often able to slip through some humanity as well.

    The scary thing is we're seriously considering creating like...10 of the things.
