No Prisoners, No Mercy
There comes a time, friends, when your favorite MMO ceases to sparkle, when even new videogames lose their luster, and the computer room becomes a prison; and all that is left are two gamers (who happen to be nuns) with a very large axe to grind. Come join Julie Whitefeather and Frances Kosac as they go to War - and along the way discuss the events of the week in the MMO industry.

This time out it is our pleasure to welcome renown author Dedra Stevenson back to the show. Ms. Stevenson is the Author of The Hakima's Tale Trilogy, Desert Magnolia and Skinwalker: The Ressurection. Join us as we discuss her latest book.

Welcome to Show 182 of the No Prisoners, No Mercy Show. This week we discuss citizencon. Next, whether the initials are fps, moba or rpg sometimes we get angry in and at video games- but why? We follow that with a discussion on what attracted us to mmorpg gaming in the first place.

Welcome to show 180 of the No Prisoners, No Mercy Show - This time out we talk about the World of Warcraft Legion Expansion. We wanted to wait until we hit the level cap until we gave us our impressions of the new expansion.

In the second half of the show our own Julie and Slunker sit down and talk about pvp - why do we as gamers do player versus player in the first play? Does the style of pvp matter? Is it the structure of the game? Is it the purpose of the pvp? Why do we like it or hate it? When is pvp counter productive and even hurt the game?

See you online,

Julie

Welcome to Show 178 of the No Prisoners, No Mercy Show,

It's been a rough month for us, but we are back in the groove. We should almost call this our comeback show.

And what a comeback it is! If you like wargames, real time strategy, or table top games this show is for you. We have a special guest who started the first wargaming site on the internet! Join us for some fun and a bit of gaming history as we sit down with Rod Harper!

This show is dedicated to the memory of John Taylor and Robin Rapata.
