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.

Welcome to Show 153!

This time out Steve, Fran and Julie have a great time talking about the following subjects. Please join us for another round of No Prisoners No Mercy.

Welcome to  Show 152!

It's been awhile hasn't it? Having survived two bouts of serious illness, one reorganization of the workplace and still surviving a foot and a half of snow in one 24 hour period we are back.  WARNING:  This time out the show is a more serious one.  We start out with a discussion of some of the most controversial games of all time.  We follow up with a discussion of the new game "Hatred."  In the second half of the show we talk about violence directed at videogame developers, and journalists. TAKE NOTE: THE SHOW CARRIES AND EXPLICIT RATING.
