Vanguard was my thought of another game with boats, Blizzard have so much money, why aren’t they doing something more imaginative with BfA? Oh and Ithorians in SWTOR is a trigger topic for me, I really want to have that Ithorian Jedi character…

Whenever you guys talk about boats in MMOs, you never mention Wurm Online and Unlimited, which surely has the most amazing boat system out there. You can gather raw materials like wood, tar, ore and build planks, nails etc, then you can build one of the many kinds of boats and ships (or build them all! or become a ship builder and sell them to fellow players!). With a boat, you can sail seamlessly throughout the world and cross over the server borders to go visit other servers. You can store and huge amounts of things in the hold and use your boat to deliver and fetch goods when doing trades. You can obviously fish from your boat, and will need a boat to go deep sea fishing. Come on guys! You really need to mention Wurm when you talk about boats! In this video, you can see me sailing my knarr along the shorelines, and you can see people’s ships parked along the shore.

Oh yeah, as soon as we stopped talking about it, I thought of a ton more – like how did we not mention any of the pirate ship games? Off-the-cuff, that’s why. :D

I honestly thought the outro was gonna be a fade out while Bree was ad libbing while talking about how she can’t ad lib xD
I normally just stay quiet while enjoying your podcasts otherwise I’d fill your comments with Warframe fanboy talk, and speaking of Character customization *Don’t Tell MJ!*

Spoiler
Warframe presents you with your first real character customization screen about 30 hours in…or 1500 hours if you were playing before DE added The Second Dream questline

I just wanted to say that even with all this doom and gloom talk, the folks from mmobomb always give you guys props in their podcasts so thank you for doing all that you do.

Maybe I need to start doing the quests I Warframe then. 189 hours in and I haven’t gotten to that yet lol.

MMOBomb has good peeps! <3

I'm glad Justin faded it out instead of keeping the whole thing where I explain how I was once banned from a forensics competition for reciting an "offensive" poem. I really pissed off the bankers!

I hope none of the MOP staff got the con crud. Already reading of several people who caught it.
