On this week’s show, Bree and Justin brace for the busiest launch week in recent memory (Phantasy Star Online 2! Greymoor! Guild Wars 2’s No Quarter! EverQuest progression servers!), look at Daybreak’s latest studio “spin-off,” dig into the latest ArcheAge controversy, talk about rogue server security, and figure out where “ownership” of online games lies.

OK, who’s going to be the first to come up with a T-shirt logo for “Raiser of Unholy Stink!”

Loved the response to my question! At the end of the day, we can chalk it up to technology outpacing our legal system.

The question of making offline modes for our MMOs has been one that has been in the back of my mind ever since I started with Guild Wars and realized that one day the game might no longer be around. To me it’s not even a matter of trying to get it done when the sunset is inevitable, but one of future-proofing. Why not just build that contingency in from the start? We already have a couple of games that I know of that have offline modes running concurrently with their online mode. Heck, for an MMO I really enjoy playing, I would even be willing to pay a box price to unlock that offline mode when the servers are shut down!

Sea of Thieves is available in Xbox Game Pass for PC. It’s a subscription service, which costs $1 for the first month, and $5 thereafter.

GoG is owned by CD Projekt, which also owns CD Projekt Red, the makers of The Witcher series. They are a Polish company, not Russian.
