After much wrangling about our first podcast is nearly in the bag. There is a bit of editing left to do, and some special features to add, but the content is all there.
Hopefully we will have it up in the next couple of days. In our first episode we talk about Dungeons and Dragons Online, RF Online, the Game Developers Conference, Star Gate Worlds and much more. Watch here for the RSS feed and a direct link when the show is available! Special thanks to Phil Comeau, Jeff Woleslagle and Nicole Hamlett for being a part of our first foray into the world of audio.
