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!

This episode includes selections from: Cat Context 1: Enter the SWTOR Bikini Warrior Cat Context 5: “Skynet is lying in wait in a slave...

Meanwhile Ubisoft made unfortunate comments...

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...

A few blog readers (hello!) have popped in over at my guild to see if they can join in the fun for WildStar, and of course the answer is yes! We have a bunch of people, myself included, who are psyched for launch. If you, dear reader, are looking for guildies who are smart, funny, and nice, people who don’t use slurs of any kind, and a guild that is focused on taking your time levelling and only very vague plans for raiding in...

Cat Context 50: Our Second Birthday! Ask Us Anything!

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday Cat Context! Because now you are two! This week Liore, Arolaide, and Ellyndrial celebrate the podcast’s second anniversary with an Ask Us Anything episode! Do any of us regret anything we’ve said on the show over the past years? Who is our favorite publisher? What hardware do we use for the show? Is podcasting harder than blogging? (Preview of that last question:...
