Here’s the 61st Contains Moderate Peril podcast. This week as well as our usual discussions about gaming, we interview a guest about their online activities, as part of our NBI sponsorship. We also give the last of our advice and guidance sessions. We hope you have enjoyed them and found them useful. If you have a gaming (or movie) blog that you would like to promote then drop Brian an email via firstname.lastname@example.org.
- CMP blogger interview: Brian recently thought it would be a good idea to start a dialogue with fellow bloggers and have them on the show to talk about their blogs and their writing aspirations. Joshua AKA Riknas from Riknas Rants decided to take us up on the offer, and talks to Brian and me about his particular take on game blogging. [Starts at 01:56]
- MMOs. Is less is more? Lots of single player games include co-op play or some sort of online content. Syrim Online is a mod under development for that very reason. Mass Effect 3 added co-operative play to the last instalment of the franchise. With casual gamers becoming an increasing part of the player base, would it be more beneficial for future MMOs to be less complex? Would less be more? More importantly would it make an MMO less likely to fail? [Starts at 22:47]
- Newbie Blogger Initiative: Brian and I take a look a various ways that a new blogger can promote their blog. We discuss the use of social networks, guest posts, link sharing and other more traditional means to gain an audience. [Starts at 34:33]
The podcasts are intended to be broad in content and casual in their nature. They are fun to record and are intended to inform and amuse. All opinions offered are our own and do not reflect any official view held by the game developers or film studios whose products we discuss. There is some strong language used.
