  • Over 239 million in-game hours, this equals 332,000 months or roughly 27,000 years in-game time.
  • Over 20 billion NPCs killed (This includes the docile animals my nephew enjoys to target)
  • Over 148 billion credits spent (Most of my help in this was spending them on crew skills)

Fact or Fiction: Can you pick out the confirmed fact from the tall tales?  This week’s host challenge involves crew skills, class balance, and PAX East. Continue reading »

This week Kathy’s daughter Roxanne joins the podcast, which is great because nothing spices up a show like talk of Pokemon and pedometers!  Also, six out of six gaming producers agree, cyberspace is alive with the sound of microtransactions.  Ka-CHING! Continue reading »
