The Elder Scrolls Online Beta (thoughts)

I finally feel comfortable with talking about my time in The Elder Scrolls Online beta. The fact that the NDA recently got dropped is one reason. The second and most important reason is I was able to get my own thought’s in order. As ESO really provoked a different kind of response from me than […]

Matt Damon is Robin.

I guess so. Or so all the rage and whatnot on the interwebs has foretold. Matt Damon has been cast as Robin in the upcoming Batman vs Superman movie. Or something like that. Micheal Keaton was a good Batman, so we all need to rage quit the internet in protest. Because as the internet has […]

Patman Picks Free iPhone Games. World Of Aircraft.

Do you like World War II games? Do you like air combat ?  Now, do you like free, for a limited time?  If you answered ” yes” to any of these questions then  I suggest you go to the App Store and download “World of Aircraft”  as soon as you can because this game will […]

Possibly the Best Feedback Bot on Wonderpod, Ever.

How often do we get bot spam responses to posts at Wonderpod? Often. But sometimes… sometimes you get something so inane, ridiculous, and heeltastic, a point of it must be made. The bot has inner conversations with itself about implied communication with the author that hasn’t, or never will occur. It loves double spacing, to […]

B games are dead (again)

Ubisoft has always been known for making brash statements. Whether you agree or don’t agree, they get people talking. Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat has been the source for many of them.

“Hockey Is Finally Back” ?

The Opposite Of A Gamer Dick

Since the early days of our podcast, we have spent a lot of time complaining about dicks. Gamer dicks to be more specific and less crude. It’s always a good time to trash some jerk on air. I doubt highly we ever shame them, but it’s still good for laughs. The problem is we hardly […]

Sports Shorts

In my continuing effort to talk about sports I give you sports shorts. When there is nothing major I want to talk about. I will just ramble about several topics at once. Kind of like my old Not Tycho News bit only about sports. If a real sports writer or hardcore fan ever reads this […]

Review MMOs Differently?

I was reading this interview with Star Trek Online executive producer Dan Stahl and Perfect World Entertainment vice president of business development and corporate communications John Young. Most of it was typical industry talk of managing an MMO, but Dan Stahl made one comment that really got me thinking. Should MMO’s be reviewed differently than […]

Windows 8 Doom and Gloom

By now you may have heard that some game developers are freaking out over the soon to be released Windows 8. If you haven’t, go here for to get general idea of the concerns. We have already talked about this once or twice briefly on Wonderpod. I still felt I like there was more to […]
