    Yeah, that part sucks...I just hear some people saying that "It horribly failed and is a terrible game" and don't agree with that at all. The gameplay is solid, the story is great...

    But it did fail. it made bioware no money, and the guy who was in charge of the entire thing lost his job over it. as a game sure it was fine, but they money they sunk into it, it NEEDED to be a WOW killer, and it was far far far from that. It failed on a finical sense, which for a MMO, is death.

    Well...if it's financial failure proves anything...it's that it's VERY difficult to dethrone WoW.

    WoW is a freak of nature. You can't replicate it's success notated how much money you throw at a game, as demonstrated by SWTOR. It's still the only MMO that hasn't adopted a F2P sub model.

    You guys just got another listener :D  I've been wanting to branch away from just collecting Transformers, so I was able to listen to episode 44 first and got a lot of great advice (and humor!).

    Really great show and I look forward to listening to much more!

    One of my teachers actually asked me what I was listening to once, because I was doing my best to keep in my laughter :lol  (for those curious, it was Ichab0d's Soul Pizza rant).
