The MMO Report

In case you didn't know, it's the future. And in the future, you can interview game developers from thousands of miles away. Well, maybe not you, but Casey Schreiner can.

Thanks to Casey's special ability, we have this week's City of Heroes Anniversary Interview Special. Thanks to high-speed internet access, Skype, and a webcam we got the chance to interview Brian Clayton and Matt Miller from Paragon Studios while they were at NCsoft's Headquarters in Seattle. All the while Casey was still safe and sound in Los Angeles. Did I just blow your mind? Of course I did. Now press play, and enjoy.

First of all, we're a day late because of technical difficulties. Our apologies. Second, you're getting a double dose of WTF Second Life this week, so you really shouldn't complain.

That's right, not only do you get two WTF Second Life's, but you also get to hear about Champions Online's release date, the drama surrounding homosexuality in Star Wars: The Old Republic, and the sugar-induced coma that is Hello Kitty Online. It's all par for the course. Now leave me alone, I've got tickets for Wolverine and I need to shape my sideburns. This is...

You can exhale now. Casey Schreiner has returned, and this time it's personal.

This week Casey explains how MIT has brought us closer to the end of says with their "WoW Pod", why Age of Conan wants you to have a starring role in their game, and how WTF Second Life is bringing sci-fi nerds of all kinds together to fight an impending legal battle. So relax, it's the weekend (sort of)! This is...

To err is human, to forgive divine.

Yes, even the crack team of geniuses we have working here at G4tv.com make mistakes sometimes, and last week it was my turn. In a moment of mental weakness I switched the game titles of Earthrise and Fallen Earth in my head, which ended up in last week's script, which eventually came out of Casey's mouth. Well, we got in touch with the ladies and gentlemen over at Fallen Earth LLC to apologize, and when we offered to dedicate an entire episode to their game, they offered us exclusive, uncut gameplay footage. Don't you just love when things work out? So sit back, relax, and enjoy the epic apocalyptic goodness. Oh, and be kind to the temporary guest host. This is...

Hope you all enjoyed John Walsh's guest appearance last week, because this time Casey is back full force. You might want to put some sunglasses on.

This week, Casey shows off the story timeline trailer from Star Wars: The Old Republic, talks about why PETA is protesting Canadian Seal Clubbing practices in World of Warcraft, and the rumors floating around the internet about the possibility of a Fallout MMO. As if i didn't already spend enough time wandering through a bombed out Washington D.C. looking for random trinkets and XP. This is...

I can't believe it. That slacker Casey Schreiner went on vacation again. What does he think this is, France?

But lucky you, you get to experience the genius of John Walsh again. He'll drop some knowledge on you about how Marvel is working closely with an MMO development studio, talk about what was seen of Huxley at GDC last week, and discuss the rumored 5th game that's coming from Blizzard. So sit down and enjoy all the John Walsh you can; he doesn't come around every week. This is...

It's the week of GDC and that means we're all a little bit busier than normal. Compound that fact with a few technical difficulties, and you'll understand why The MMO Report was delayed a day. If you don't understand, well there's just no talking sense to you and we don't need your compassion anyway!

Moving on, this week, Casey will tell you about how Lord of the Rings Online is celebrating the coming of spring with drunken hedge maze races; how Champions Online was poaching beta players from City of Heroes; and the new World of Warcraft branded sodas coming from Mountain Dew. We know you'll buy them no matter what they taste like, so start lining up at the 7-11 as soon as possible. This is...

For the record, Casey enjoyed his week away from the office. He got a lot of things done, met some new people, and solidified his position in the intergalactic brotherhood of planets. But no one puts baby in the corner.

So this week Casey is back to drop some serious knowledge on your ass. We've got the new dev diary from Star Wars: The Old Republic; information about how Marvel Universe has been brought back from the dead; and how confused we all are that Blizzard is asking for your fan fiction. Yeah, we have no idea. So prepare to take it all in, the man is back and he's taking no prisoners. This is...

This week, we have a very special treat for all of you out there. Casey Schreiner had some prior obligations this week, so you get the very special, incredibly hilarious, and strangely Hagrid looking, John Walsh as a guest host.

Our special correspondant brings you information about this week's EVE Online expansion Apocrypha, how Warhammer Online is trying to get you to lure your friends into the fold, and how Square Enix is still teasing us all with vague comments about a new MMO. Typical. So prepare your eyeballs for the specticle that is John Walsh, and for the epic awesomeness of...

It's Thursday and you know what that means. That's right, it means tomorrow is Friday -- the day I finally get to see Watchmen in the theaters and then get blind stinking drunk afterwards to drown my disappointment.

However, while we're still in today, Casey is going to drop some MMO knowledge on your ass. This week, he'll talk about how Tabula Rasa shut down this past Saturday; how the Swedes named World of Warcraft the cocaine of video games; and how all the drama going down in EVE Online has actually made their playerbase larger. Hmmm. So zip on up to Mars, don't forget to bring some oxygen, and look at the past, present, and future all at the same time. This is...

This Friday, the film adaptation of Watchmen will hit the silver screen and change the way we look at comic book movies forever. As a companion to the film, Warner Bros. has partnered with Last Legion Games to bring the Watchmen experience to the palm of your hand with the new game Watchmen: Justice is Coming; the first casual MMO of its kind developed exclusively for the iPhone.

By using its patent-pending CloudMMO technology running on Amazon's Cloud, Last Legion were able to create a persistent world for the iPhone in the Watchmen universe. Players can roam the city streets, chat with total strangers, battle with people on the other side of the country, and ride the subway to another part of the city to continue their crusade against crime, all in real-time. Watch what happened when developers from Last Legion Games brought Watchmen: Justice is Coming to our office recently, and hit the Read More link for the full press release.

You're getting a double dose of the MMO Report this week. Consider yourself very, very lucky.

In this episode, Casey covers the trailer for the upcoming EVE Online expansion Apocrypha, the story that Sony released four years of EverQuest 2 server logs to the scientific community for research purposes, and the fact that someone who won an Oscar last week plays World of Warcraft. See? We CAN contibute more to society than new and interesting smells! So start twitching that right finger, warm up your battle laser, and lay waste to your alien nemisis. Nemisi? Nemisises?

You know the Oscars are coming up when traffic in LA starts getting bad. And by bad, I mean really bad. For instance, getting to work fifteen minutes late and throwing scalding hot coffee at your fellow motorists, bad. Not to worry, it will all be over soon enough. My roof-mounted rocket launcher is on back-order.

This week, Casey talks about the European Parliament calling for an MMO "Panic Button," the dates, and possible reveals of BlizzCon 09, new gameplay footage of Global Agenda, and of course, five more screenshots of Star Wars: The Old Republic. I swear, Bioware is about as exciting and consistent as a leaky faucet sometimes. So drop a twenty on the Oscar pool, nuke up a bag of popcorn, and call the plumber. This is...

Oh man, EVE Online is decending into chaos. Maybe it's time I started playing...

Not only does Casey cover the guild wars in EVE, but also the new gameplay footage of Star Wars: The Old Republic. Also featured: Champions Online's showing at the NY ComiCon and more virtual extra-marital affairs in WTF Second Life. But it's almost time to hit the joysticks at the Street Fighter IV launch party, so throw a fireball, charge your dragon punch, and enjoy...

You know, it's a funny thing when a company like Blizzard can admit they're wrong. It often results in fanboy gloating and a whole lot of Internet "I told you so's."

However, there's more to this week's MMO Report than that. Beyond the admission that the Hunter class was over-nerfed, Warhammer Online is also adding two new classes: EVE Online is upgrading their NPC AI and WTF Second Life brings back the man who lost his wife because of Second Life...well, because he still makes us laugh. So brush out your beard, comb in some conditioner and stap on that hair net. This is...
