This week on the last Ten Ton Hammer Live of 2010, Jesse and Ben welcome Adam Mersky and Kate Paiz from Turbine to talk about the amazing progress The Lord of the Rings Online has made since switching to free-to-play. Turns out, all the impressions gamers had about the free to play model were wrong. We also learn that the hobbits aren't the only ones going to Isegard, as soon you will be too - when we discuss their plans for the upcoming expansion. After it's all said and done, Adam and Kate stick around for a Master Looter sure to make even the most skeptic person question the existance of dragons and orcs.
In the news this week, Ben and Jesse discuss what happened to Square-Enix, the Cataclysm Sell-A-Thon, and why Rift is freaking awesome.
All this and more - Only on Ten Ton Hammer Live!
