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 "before the next one and after the last one". This time out Steve, Chris, Fran and Julie spend time having fun and talking about the folling subjects:

Pokemon Go, Companies that do it right (Blizard and Turbine) and those who do it wrong/

WB Games, PC Ports, Dungeons and Dragons - offline, online and on the tabletop, Lord of the rings online. Turbine, the bandwagon other developers jumped on. Perfect World games.

What Blizzard does wrong (Garrisons) and what they do right (Legion)
