Update: Echo of Soul is moving off Steam and to Aeria. They announced it on Steam yesterday. Steam service ends 12/07/20. For the 0.72 people who care.

So, I’m a loyal listener here. Every week. Love you guys, but…I’d really like to see Bree branch out a bit and mix in some other games in her “whatchya been playing lately?” segment lol.
I mean, imagine if every week Justin went on and on about playing old LOTRO content! He does do that, but at least he’s trying to dip his toe in other MMORPG waters, like WoW classic, FFXIV, ESO, Rift, etc. etc.

So, c’mon Bree. Even more time in GW2, I’ll take!

I mean… I just spent the last several months talking about other games and not playing SWGL. I literally just went back. :)

Fair enough! Maybe, I have selective hearing, but just seemed like a lot of SWG for awhile now. I’d like to hear you and Justin start a new MMORPG together. It’d be interesting to hear 2 different opinions on the same game and working together.

I actually disagree. I like that part because it’s relatable. That’s how a lot of us really play – we have our favorite games and our favorite activities in them, and we tend to get in patterns where we’re playing something a lot. I like that it seems like an authentic conversation between friends when Bree and Justin talk about their games. I wouldn’t that to seem too planned out or scripted. If that means there are repeats of talking about the same games… well, that’s how people play. :)

So, you’ve been immersed in MMOs for years yet you don’t know that blue gear is the industry standard mmo equivalent of an engagement ring? c’mon!

I just can’t imagine assuming the target’s gender or age or interest on very first convo. Who… who does this?? You wouldn’t even do that flirting IRL. Maybe he was drunk or something.

The sad thing is at this point you kinda know he never would have offered to make the gear if it was a male character.
