Episode 2: Literally Twice The Podcast

We’re back with another fun-filled episode of the Mission: Nexus Podcast! We took a week off due to some illnesses and scheduling conflicts, but Datix, Domichi, Krissy and Skya have returned to your ear holes for another hour of talking WildStar. This episode, we talk about the Bartle Test of Gamer Psychology and how it compares to Path choices in the game, and Datix expresses his rather unhealthy affection for a certain recurring rowsdower. We finish out with some Q&A from our friends around the community, and a special thanks to our 100th Twitter follower, @unindel!

Note: It wasn’t until after this recording that I even realized the rowsdower has a name, thus I call it the sheep/goat like an uneducated idiot all episode. -Datix

      As far as coffee, we’d love to review it! We’ll feature it on an upcoming episode as our beverage du jour! I will DM you my address on the Twitters.

    You mentioned another new podcast during yours. I don’t remember where it was in the broadcast however and wanted to check it out. Could you give a link and/or referral over to it?

    Awesome episode! funny stuff and a great dynamic between friends! I will however disagree with the sentiment of pets not being allowed to have a fighting or dueling/breeding system in a Pokemon style. it is true that it may not be people’s cup of tea but that does not mean it shouldn’t be in the game. I personally do not like open world PVP, but I understand the love for it and believe it has its place. If there is an aspect of a game that doesn’t interrupt my chosen gameplay the I am still happy. I do believe that pet fighting or breeding would add an extra function and gameplay goal to strive for other than just having a decorative creature following you.

    Thanks for your time and keep up the podcast, one of my top faves!

      Thanks for the compliments Bloodraptor! While I didn’t particularly fall in love with the battle system in WoW, I don’t disagree that it would be a good addition for those who enjoy that side game in WildStar. Perhaps my amended stance would be that so long as it doesn’t consume a large amount of resources from other critical areas getting ready for launch, I’d love to eventually see it included!
