Hello Ashlann & Father,
I enjoyed the music contributed by Fox
in the first break segment.
As to that Attorney General Atkinson in Australia. He's going to keep pushing those buttons against the games industry in Oz. Since now he has gotten a better foothold in banning that other game title. (Left4dead 2) So he's going to milk this cow for what its worth as a wedge issue.
(By a wedge issue I mean: flag burning, gay marriage, abortion, Intelligent Design taught in public schools. Some of these points are more centric to the US however.)
Politicians would rather push a wedge issue than focus on the core bread and butter issues facing their citizens. It's busy work and its easy for them to score popularity points during an election campaign season. They may care very little about the fuss that is caused regarding the wedge issue. As long as they're ahead in the polls or what not. Yes, i may sound like a pessimist however it is a tactic i've seen used time and again by government officials on a National stage.
Moving further along when Ashlann
mentioned he started as a MMO Virgin with "Guild Wars". From a cost perspective without having to pay a subscription fee this may be a good introduction to a Fantasy Mmorpg. But yet again their are many more F2P MMO's out there for MMOG virgins.
I at one point played "Guild Wars
". Where I found the graphics mediocre and the game heavily
instanced for my personal tastes. I lasted less than a month within it and only purchased one part of the trilogy.
Glad to hear that next weeks topic will be F2P MMO's with Ariya
. She's also in Belgium where Father's brother "Feesless" is also located. (Yes, i know Father is an ex-pat Belgium in Oz)
