G4's MMO Report

Updated Fri, Nov 07, 2008 by Medeor

If reading isn't your thing, try this new invention called video.

G4TV has gone through countless iterations of hosts, shows and identities. While it trends toward the muddy middle of gaming and really tries to cover all aspects of console, PC and handheld gaming in thirty minute shows it really has boiled down to a stew of truly unremarkable parts. The one sliver of hope is the MMO Report from G4 that takes a different tact by specializing. It tackles one slice of the gaming industry and you guessed it, it's the slice of gaming that we like. This week the host Casey Schreiner discusses the following topics:

  • The Flagship studios debacle: Casey wishes those poor souls who lost their jobs "good luck at not sucking" in the future.
  • Star Trek Online and the locations of all the bastard children of Captain Kirk.
  • SOE Fan Faire and how the expansions for Everquest and Everquest II will include an intervention by Dr. Phil discussing Gaming Addiction.
  • Fallen Earth is now in alpha testing and by the post-apocalyptic description should be hand-crafted for a Kevin Costner movie.
  • Final Fantasy boss battle that lasted eighteen hours and that FF players really are just "quitters" since they didn't finish it off.
