    I will have to agree with Oblivious here and quote a hero. "Good job!"

    It was very enjoyable. On a technical note, there were a few times where someone's voice cut out. Is that due to the VOIP program you're running?

    My goal in every episode of every podcast I do is to say at least one thing that is completely factually untrue. :)

    Glad I have a regular WildStar podcast I can listen to!!

    I have listened to each episode as they have come out, you guys have awesome podcast personalities. I do feel like there is a lot of time devoted to other games or off topic things, which is interesting but it would be awesome if you guys honed in a little more on WildStar. Otherwise I find myself zoning out and getting distracted by other things at times, maybe a little more rigid show structure would help me not get lost with the pacing. Just adding my 2 cents to the mix :)

    Can't wait for the next one.

    True, though I imagine they're struggling with the fact that there's extremely minimal information out for Wildstar currently, so not a whole lot to fill up a whole podcast with. I think they did mention planning actual segments!

    P2P over B2P I'm hoping. Cash shops are a huge load of <REDACTED>.

    This is also true. What might be cool.. would be for them to go back to some of the blog posts from pre-podcast and dive in to those a little bit. They have some that are on lore too I think, would be cool to have a rundown on some of the lore that's being established in those every once in a while, reading it just isn't as fun as listening :)

    We appreciate your opinion! I know we go off topic a bit, but like stated before it's hard to talk about WS with not a lot of info. Once Carbine starts rolling out more and more we will most definitely be talking more on topic.

    Also, I tend to go off topic because that's what I do.

    Displeased with the bit on quest text...I do want all that background info because that's where a lot of lore is. Granted, they can make it up to me depending on how much lore I get via the scientist path...but still worried.
