Welcome to our first official ScriptCast! This is an experiment and I’m not sure how it will turn out, but I’m curious and think it could be cool option for those of us that can’t get together to do a “fo-reals” podcast and for the readers to get their opinions in at the same time while having us respond in kind to them. A HUGE part of this will be using the Reply button when making comments. Don’t just simply make a new comment if you are directly replying to someone so we can keep this organized and less crazy-town like it probably already will be given the people I’m asking to join. If it gets too out of hand, I will start getting rid of comments even though I don’t want to.
So for the first Scriptcast we’re going to cover the state of MMOs in general. This will go for a week to two weeks max. I’ve got a few things I’d like to discuss, but since this is the first time we’ll be doing a discussion in this fashion I’ll just start with one question and we’ll abuse it until it implodes and move on from there.
The first thing we’ll talk about is the combat in MMOs. Does it need to evolve more. Was point and click too easy. Is tab-targeting irrelevant? What about Wildstar’s telegraphs? What would the ideal form be? Aaaaand GO!
