This is a review that Justin and I have been tossing back and forth for a while now. Originally I planned on doing this game for my first episode of “Browser Based” but my regular show kept getting in the way, and Justin spent most of his time playing this. So with a bit of note exchanging, and back and forth script-writing (mostly Justin), and a bit of technological pain trying to find a good way to record footage, the result lay before you.
…but I just HAD to get the word out about this…. thing. You might want to avoid it at all costs, but those brave enough to check it out… well, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Yes, sorry I was not able to deliver on my promise of getting the next episode done by the time I got back from MAG. I was hella stupid worn out. So much so I’m still using phrases like “Hella Stupid”. Then I got sick. Despite my absolute best efforts not to, I was it hard about two days after the con. Everything’s fucking wonderful.
I think I will probably get the episode done within the next two days. So far everything is complete as far as footage, scripting and supplementary materials gathered, but I still have yet to film and record it, so it should not take much longer. Now here’s the question. Do I release every two weeks from there? Do I wait until the weeks it’s supposed to release, leaving an entire month between new episodes, or do I rush out another one for the next week? I’m shooting for option A.
If you miss me that much, I did manage to film two crossovers at the convention. One of them is still waiting on a off-screen line script and recording, but here’s the other one before Julien (Sad Panda) puts it up on the main site:
One of my major assumptions in this series is that I assume you at least know what an MMO is. Sure, I’ll text-define things like “DoT’s”, or “DPS” when I mention them, but what if you honestly don’t even know what I mean by MMO in general.
Luckily “Tyger” has you covered. Those who know me from TGWTG or BT might have seen Tyger’s videos, a series with several different names (WOWTF, MMOMFG) before finally settling on “MUD2MMO“. Unlike MMO Grinder, MUD2MMO focuses on the aspects of MMOs in a more tutorial/editorial format. So far he’s covered things like PvP, Current annoyances in WoW, and even a look at the creepy children of WoW’s Goldshire, but his video posted on Sept 8th covers the most basic question of all. “What is an MMO?” Check out the video below for explanation of the more basic terms of MMOs and by all means, check out his other videos.
This is the MMO Grinder home page. Check back here for uploads of new episodes, status updates not fitting on Twitter, and refer to the “Suggested MMO List” to see what has been suggested. Feel free to comment so I may continue to add to that list, or update the information. Make sure you check the Episode List as well so you don’t accidentally suggest something I already covered… unless it’s been a long time, and I might want to revisit it.
