Episode 4: A Gently Used Hope

It’s finally here! Hyped up on Anhrez’s famous Exile Espresso, Datix, Krissy, Domichi and Skya chat about the art and music of WildStar and other MMOs, and discuss how those things can make or break a player’s experience. We kick off with a discussion of Jeff Kurtenacker’s amazing work on the soundtrack for the game, which he has so graciously shared with the community via SoundCloud. We then talk a bit about the art featured in Polycount’s interview with Creative Director Matt Mocarski. Datix and Domichi recap their experience at the first ever WildStar Community Town Hall, and we finish out with some questions from our listeners. It’s a rip roarin’ good time, and it all comes to you direct from our new recording location. That’s right, it’s an actual studio, so hopefully you’ll notice an improvement in the quality of the audio!

    proximity releasing poisonous gas pods planted around the house? awesome!

    It can be thin line between soul-crushing and profit sir!

    Love the ‘econ pvper’ thoughts of charging people to access your homes for a fishing derby or a petting zoo!

    Every theorycrafter needs consumers!
