Hello Ashlann & Father,

I've just finished listening to episode #15.

First, i wanted to slightly correct Stefaan / Father where he mixed up his facts concerning "Vanguard: Saga of Heroes" Mmorpg, now owned by SOE.

Sigil started out small, but grew to over 100 employees for the five years it was around. In January of 2007, Sigil and SOE launched Vanguard: Saga of Heroes. When Vanguard wasn't as successful as was hoped, Sigil sold the company and Vanguard to Sony Online Entertainment.

The portion that Stefaan mentioned of the mass firing of the "Sigil Games Online" staff. Was after SOE had made the fire sale purchase from Brad Mcquaid and his company. Where Mr. Mcquaid didn't have the stomach to fire his own staff in person. (being overly distraught) That the Vanguard project producer I believe fired his staff in the parking garage.

I also noticed Stefaan's voice during the first half of this podcast. Sorta popping in close and than for a time popping out making him sound far off.

I enjoyed the 2nd break period music with the guitar more so than that of the first music break.

Although it seems that Oz is getting hit with a double whammy in regards to our hobby of games. That being the R18+ debate and that of the Internet Open Access to uncensored content.

From listening as to how Stefaan explained the issue facing Australia with Internet censorship of sites. That politician in Oz pushing for this sounds like he is offering a Trojan Horse Agenda. Promising one thing about keeping children safe, all the while carrying out his real intentions that seem fascist to a degree.

Thanks again Stef and Alex for having me as a guest, I really enjoyed talking to you guys. You have to excuse me for my sometimes not so perfect English.
I also loved your music during the second break Alex.

Great job on the podcast, I'm fairly new to ToG and only listened to episode 15 so far. It's great to hear news and reviews about games I don't own yet or was interested in trying. Keep up the good work, I like reviews from actual gamers and not read it from a magazine which may be influenced buy someone throwing money to that magazine. Maybe I'll see ya in game sometime. You just got another regular listener.

Thanks for the clarification Atrayo, do you know how the game is performing currently?
