This week we discuss Wildstar’s F2P announcement, SWTOR’s expansion announcement, and some new Crowfall info. Welcome to Casual Core Radio, where we talk about MMOs and where we don’t spacebar through cutscenes…
Everyone is “The Outlander”
All of the current content will be playable at the new level.
A free level 60.
New companions, with deeper story (and requirements) to get them
Massively Single Player Online RPG?
No new mention of new WZs or ops or class stories.
No new mention of updates beyond 3.3
Also, BadFeeling podcast PvP interview
Joe is Preferred until this launches. Unless they charge $75, it’s a win considering the dearth of content before then.
WILD SPECULATION HERE
So yes, the rumors were true. WildStar, free-to-play. Rewards. Loyalty. Currency…
NCSoft Meet and Greet
Best Dressed of Nexus
Templars vs Confessors
Drew’s Green Ranger Thief (see top of page)
If I Were a Dev
How would you do cutscenes/story content? Fully-voiced, etc.? What voice actors would you really like to get?
DREW: In a PvP game, only source of story will probably be major cutscenes, but wouldn’t mind fully voiced personal story as well.
Because of pure versatility, would really like to get Bertie Carvel (Male Agent, SWTOR), Jo Wyatt (Female agent, SWTOR), Tara Strong (pretty much everything, but Risha in SWTOR), and Brandon Keener (Garrus in ME).
JOE: SWTOR’s new method: small side quests have Wildstar-sized, Twitter-sized quest descriptions. No spacebar required for “kill 10 rats” quests. Zone, overarching plots, and so forth would be fully voiced.
Tara Strong, Courtenay Taylor (Jack in ME), John de Lancie, Andrea Libman, Keith David (Joe mispoke and called him David Keith).
This week’s end music is Kick Butt and Chew Bubble Gum by Jeff Kurtenacker from Wildstar.
