Cat Context 57: MMO Malaise, Destiny, Twitch TV Changes

This week’s show is 100% Liore-free! She couldn’t make the recording and so Ellyndrial and Arolaide sat down with just the two of them to record a short show without the tyranny of a host. Both Elly and Aro have recently been struck by MMO malaise, and they talk about why they got out of the habit of playing MMOs and whether they’ll ever get back into it. In other news, Twitch alienated a lot of their users this week...

Cat Context 56: Destiny Beta and Hearthstone’s Curse of Naxxramas

This week Liore, Ellyndrial and Arolaide sat down to talk about games! New games! Games like the Destiny beta and the Curse of Naxxramas patch for Hearthstone. Elly and Aro both played the Destiny beta this past weekend, and they both seemed to have a good time. Aro thinks the game is beautiful but is not sold on it being console-only for a few reasons, while Elly is fully on board and ready for some shooting fun with friends....

Cat Context 55: Finally, Casual vs. Hardcore! Steam Summer Sale Purchases!

Ellyndrial is back home, and together with Liore and Arolaide we all sat down to talk about the last couple of weeks in gaming news. Last week a LotRO Community manager declared that raiders are one of the smallest segments of MMO players but also one of the most vocal. We start out discussing if raiders get more than their fair share of developer attention, and eventually get into that eternal debate: casual vs. hardcore!...

Cat Context 54: Clip Show!

There is something worse, and it really does blow. When a long-running series… does a cheesy clip show! - The Simpsons Liore, Arolaide, and Ellyndrial were all swamped by real life this week, so we’ve put together a selection of some of our favorite moments from the last two years. This episode includes selections from: Cat Context 1: Enter the SWTOR Bikini Warrior Cat Context 5: “Skynet is lying in wait in a slave...

Cat Context 53: E3 Happened! Also more WildStar!

Last week was E3, and Liore, Arolaide, and special guest Corranhorn get together to talk about the highs, the lows, and those weird glowy wristbands that journalists were forced to wear at the Microsoft show. A few games definitely stood out in a week of marketing extravaganzas, and we share our favorites. Popular opinion is that Nintendo won the show, but we’re not sure we agree. Meanwhile Ubisoft made unfortunate comments...

Cat Context 52: WildStar Launches!

Hey guys, did you hear that WildStar launched this week? All three of Liore, Arolaide, and Ellyndrial got in the headstart of Carbine’s new MMO WildStar, and we actually stopped playing it long enough to record a podcast! This week we’re talking about our impressions of the game’s headstart launch, how we’re liking our original class choices, and everything else Nexus and WildStar. Where are we, and what...
