The Multiverse – Episode #13: “Love Me Like a Half-Elf”

You said you'd bring me a pot pie...

Hey Guys,

Today we bring you the two-day delayed Multiverse Episode 13! And get this, we even recorded on a Friday. Get it? Friday. Thirteen? Ah well. We managed to avoid any unluckiness, though, and recorded one of our best episodes yet.

This week, we talk all about online relationships. Psychochild dating Tipa? Syp eloping with Cuppy? And did Syncaine really take out a contract on Wilhelm’s life?!? Get the latest celebrity blogger gossip right here and prepare yourself for the watercooler.

Seriously though, this is a topic I’ve wanted to talk about for some time and I think we give it a good go. As an MMO player, you’ve probably had to decide whether or not you consider your online relationships true friendships. I mean, if you’re not meeting with someone face to face, can you really consider it to be as valid as your weekend drinking buddy? And what about romance, which adds a whole extra layer of questions into the mix.

We hash it out, along with some discussion about EA’s subscription goals for TOR, April Fools’, as well as the recent company change ups at Blizzard and Cryptic Studios.

All in all, it’s good stuff.

Here are this week’s notes:

    Advice for all you raiding players

    Don’t date people you work with.. It’s hard.

    Great show once again guys. I am happy to report that listening to the multiverse while outside on my running loop around the city makes the whole exercise thing a lot less painful. Though a word of advice, its tough to listen to a podcast that you enjoy while running with the lady, I often found myself not listening to her =p
