Sun, 19 Oct 2008 23:36:00 +0000As presented by Robotic Brent.--- Podcast 132 This is VirginWorlds Podcast #132 for October 19th, 2008. I am your host, Robotic Brent, and this is the Massively Multiplayer Gaming news for the past week. --- First, you are probably saying, "Hey, that's not Brent, that's a robot voice." You are correct. Brent seems to have contracted a deadly throat slaying ailment on his recent trip to London, and while he doesn't sound all that bad, he can barely get two words out without coughing up a lung, and so, instead you have me, Robotic Brent. Interesting isn't it that I have nearly as much emotion in my delivery as Brent does. Ha Ha Ha. Yes, Brent flew into the UK this past week for work. And aside from enjoying Boddingtons Pub Ale on tap and close to its home, he sampled very little of London or the surrounding area. It was one of those in and out work trips and he didn't get a chance to get away and meet any of the UK podcast crew. Brent sucks. He was particularly taken aback by that whole, left side of the road thing. Sure, seems obvious, but when he climbed into the taxi at the airport, it was strange seeing the steering wheel on the other side, and he had to admit, every car trip was a white knuckle adventure because it seemed like every turn would surely result in death and destruction. Somehow, he made it. Also of note, not every woman that sounds like Elizabeth Hurley, looks like Elizabeth Hurley. This was a horrible horrible realization that may take many months to recover from. All in all, it looks pretty much like home, aside from that whole left-side-of-the-road thing and the peculiar controls on his hotel room shower, which took quite a while to figure out. At the top of the show, not much else to say. No new podcasts have joined the Collective this week, though there is one in the hopper that Brent needs to add. He needs to work harder. But I'll give him a break. He isn't a robot, like me, after all. My ability to process new data is far superior to his, he is but a one hundred and sixty pound bag of water, while I am a fine tuned machine. Also, no new VirginWorlds supporters have been added this week. We are still hovering just under the mark for goal #2. And now, here is the M M O news for the week. Adventure Quest Worlds. Artix Entertainment, creators of online, browser-based, role-playing games written for Macromedia Flash, today announced the release of AdventureQuest Worlds, its first 100% browser-based MMORPG. You may remember that Brent intereviewed the crew from Artix a few months ago, and they talked at length about their single player browser based games ... and they hinted at a possible MMO in the works. It has now arrived. The crew at Artix uses Flash to build eye catching battle-centric titles. Their previous work includes the Free to play titles, Adventure Quest, Mech Quest and Dragon Fable, which have had over sixty million players over the past 5 years. Now they have announced Adventure Quest Worlds, an MMO based on their most popular title, Adventure Quest. Daniel Vasile, Business Development Manager of Artix Entertainment said: “Our Beta testers’ positive responses indicate our move into MMOs was the right decision. We’re especially excited that AdventureQuest Worlds may be the first MMO developed by a small, family-owned game development studio. Our project shows MMO developers and players worldwide that a sma[...]

Fri, 19 Sep 2008 16:31:00 +0000The VirginWorlds crew went to Texas for the 2008 Game Developers Conference and aside from recording audio, did some video just for fun. Darren's camera takes some passable video when he's not waving it around it fast, and we figured it might be nice to see a little of what we're up to behind the scenes. We have a ton of audio and interesting notes collected for some upcoming audio podcasts, but for the moment, here's a few shots of our ugly mugs. Be horrified.
Tue, 19 Aug 2008 02:04:00 +0000....and part two from SOE Fan Faire 2008. It's a mini-cast-wrap-up show on some of our thoughts and experiences from Day 2 of the festival. Once again, Jonathan joins Brent as they report from Las Vegas.

Mon, 28 Jan 2008 06:22:00 +0000Clocking in at just under 3 hours in length, show 100 has finally arrived. There are probably 30+ familiar voices on this show and you'll find plenty of raw commentary and information as well as more laughs than any other episode of the VirginWorlds Podcast.
Mon, 21 Jan 2008 07:06:00 +0000Oops, it isn't show 100 yet, but here's a good show where Brent covers some listener mail and a handful of other random topics.
Sat, 05 Jan 2008 16:42:00 +0000Drawing ever closer to show 100. Number 99 is a special show featuring the annual joining of forces by VirginWorlds (Brent and Brenden) and Massively Online Gamer (Ryan and Gary). As you would expect we talk about MMOs, we cuss, we talk about non-MMOs, we make references to obscure pop culture, we talk about console games, we carpet bomb the podcast with f-bombs, and we spend some time making fun of each other. Not your typical VirginWorlds Podcast, but that is what makes it fun. If you're adverse to intense language, stray away. If you're a fan of both shows, you won't want to miss it.
Tue, 01 Jan 2008 00:36:00 +0000Podcast 98, the final podcast of 2007 features Brent, Darren from Shut Up We're Talking and Common Sense Gamer, Shawn from GuildCast, TabulaCast and OMG Real Life and Michael from MMOGNation. Join these familiar voices as they talk about the highs and lows of 2007, the game mechanics they want to see killed, the trends in MMO gaming and a listing of the MMO industry heroes of 2007. Have a happy new year!
Sat, 29 Dec 2007 00:35:00 +0000Finally, the podcast that struggled through the holiday week has been completed, and it is a big one. Darren from Common Sense Gamer and Shut Up We're Talking joins Brent for a lengthy rundown of the MMO news over the past couple of weeks.

Mon, 23 Jul 2007 02:33:00 +0000Bioware. Bioware Bioware Bioware. More specifically, Bioware Austin. It is a secret fortress protecting the identity of a future MMO that is in development there. We have no clue what they're up to. All we know is that they're licensing every technology and tool under the sun to make this thing.
Wed, 18 Jul 2007 05:25:00 +0000Have you ever asked yourself, "What would happen if Brent didn't prepare for an episode of the podcast? Would he do a show anyway? Would he stumble like peg-legged pirate on a greased plank? Would there be any useful information? Would the podcast suck?"
Tue, 10 Jul 2007 05:19:00 +0000Topics this week:
Thu, 05 Jul 2007 02:42:00 +0000Podcast 75 is unofficially Netdevil-Week, or so it seems. We have all kinds of Netdevil news, both positive and negative.

Other news includes Anarchy Online's new business model and the publishing deal for Pirates of the Burning Sea. The profile of the week features Jack Emmert of Cryptic Studios.

Mon, 07 May 2007 06:01:00 +0000Show 67 has more news than you can swallow. Seriously. It is really dense. Chew thoroughly before swallowing. VirginWorlds.com will not be responsible for its listeners choking on MMO news. (And yes, it has been a long day.)
Mon, 30 Apr 2007 05:01:00 +0000For once, there's nothing special going on and we have a normal news show. The MMO news this week is not voluminous, but it is rather interesting. Here is podcast 66. Prepare for a deep dive today.
Mon, 23 Apr 2007 22:18:00 +0000Podcasting from abroad this week, I've been sent to Cologne, Germany for work, but that isn't about to stop you from getting the Massively Multiplayer gaming news. Armed with a Kolsch, a funky laptop adapter and the iAudio recorder I'm reporting news on the following subjects:
Mon, 16 Apr 2007 05:20:00 +0000This weekend the first annual Indie MMO Game Development Conference was held in Minneapolis, MN. Adam from the Maelstrom Podcast joins Brent to discuss the event in detail. Richard Bartle, Brian Green, Kelly Rued, Celia Pearce and Robert Rice were among the noted presenters.
Mon, 09 Apr 2007 03:10:00 +0000Another slow news week, but we mix it up with a guest appearance from occasional co-host extraordinaire Brenden from FalconTwin.com. Topics this week include:
Mon, 02 Apr 2007 00:18:00 +0000This week the MMO news slowed to a crawl, but there's still some great stuff in this podcast that you will not want to miss. Topics this week include:
Mon, 26 Mar 2007 06:17:00 +0000GDC Summary and Highlights, EverQuest's 8th Anniversary, EverQuest II Game Update 33, Funcom goes digital, Gods and Heroes 'Posse' System, Guild Wars Eye of the North and Guild Wars 2, Huxley brings the twitch play, Kaneva mashes up MySpace and Second Life while preparing to beat down Linden Labs, Lineage II and the Chaotic Throne, Lord of the Rings calls all musicians, Spellborn makes you look cool, Sword of the New World keeps your hands full, Vanguard teleports you and MMO growth reached $1 billion in 2006.
Mon, 19 Mar 2007 05:41:00 +0000An odd show this week. I decided to take a week off, but still am releasing a 50 minute show. That makes no sense. I couldn't very well leave you empty handed could I? Of course not.
Sun, 11 Mar 2007 05:23:00 +0000And finally, here is part one of day five from GDC 2007. Within, Brenden and I discuss several of the roundtables we attended and afterwards you'll find interviews with Lockpick Entertainment (Dreamlords), Frozen North Productions (a new MMO company with some great ideas), and Multiverse. Part two will follow within the next few days and will feature Cheyenne Mountain and Netdevil. Enjoy!
