The Multiverse – Episode #14: Guest Starring: Cindy

Hey Guys,

We’re back with another episode of The Multiverse. This brings us up to, dare I say, episode fifty seven thousand, one hundred and twenty eight? Yeah, that’s about right.

Anyhow, this week we’re pleased to be joined by Cindy from the MMO Voices podcast and the Dream Bytes blog. We have a great time doing our first ever “blog-o-whirl” where we take topics from around the web and break them down for discussion. I also put the other hosts on the spot with some “Quickfire Questions,” a segment shamelessly borrowed from The Instance podcast.

All in all, I think we had a lot of fun getting together this week, even if it was 1AM for Ferrel. That’s dedication, my friends, and I think I can speak for all of us when I say we appreciate it, F-man.

On to the week’s notes!

    Is this show up on iTunes? I can’t seem to find it =?

    It is now. The software we used pings iTunes once every 24 hours with updates, so it will usually post the next day at the same time to our iTunes feed.

    Just wanted to comment on the hypothetical white dot versus black square MMO.

    I’m a big fan of Dwarf Fortress which is an incredibly deep rpg/fantasy sim game presented entirely in ascii graphics. The thrill and terror of a group of lowercase ‘g’s appearing before I’m ready for them is just about the most most memorable gaming moment I can think of. Graphics and immersion are two different things.
