This week we discuss Lego, Wildstar (and how it has to be going F2P soon), and the best and worst of SWTOR. Welcome to Casual Core Radio, where we talk about MMOs and where our crit chance is 100% but our hit chance is 0%…

Wildstar Goes Wild
That whole reddit thing EXPLODED. Apparently the Carbine staffer in question proved their employment status with a redacted W2. Of course, they could be ANYWHERE on the totem pole. Interesting to watch unfold, though keep the tinfoil hats on. Also, could be easily forged… so who the hell knows.

New Wildstar Twitter Community

PvP lover, always hiding undercover
In your guild till they try to say
They say “You wanna come raidin’
Best game you have played in
And you’re sure to be a-changin your ways”
I met the guild leader, was a real progression feeder
All the mats went straight to world firsts
But the best game playin’
Is when you are a-layin’
Waste to the other jerks, like this

Buff up, gear up, instill a good fear of us
They run away as soon as we load
Saying we are zerging, but we’re really iceberging
Cause we’re sinking all of their boats
So I don’t really care if you’re a carebear
If you mouse turn or use your keys
If you are backtracking
Then I’ll be attacking
And I’ll teach you your ABCs
You got to
