Cat Context 44: SOE Closures and Hints of a New Star Wars Galaxies?
Sony Online Entertainment is in the news this week with the announcement of 4 MMO closures and hints of a new game that will appeal to old Star Wars Galaxies players. Liore, Arolaide, and Ellyndrial sort of talk about all this news in between taunting each other about football, zombies, and terrible topic transitions.
What are the rights of digital property “owners” and do we have any say over what happens to our Sparkle Ponies and fancy hats when servers shut down? Also, which elements of SWG are worth saving, and is there any room for an old school game now with a new school of players?
Also, Elly talks smack about Serious Sam! Arolaide is still in love with Broken Age! Liore tries yet again to defend the powers of chaos and evil in games!
Please note that Liore is super not drunk at all in this episode.
