I was really hoping you'd leave that conversation about the assholes in the hallway in.

Mmmmmmm it is good to see

Mmmmmmm it is good to see MMO evolve so much but WOW is still a MMO at heart and thus it sucks.

We need the game to be more like a fun single player RPG and less like a limited and restricted MMO.

Yes and realize that the

Yes and realize that the "quicking" in streamlining content has destroyed good level design in most action centric(action RPG,FPS's,ect,ect). Modern SP designs are too streamlined and too generic. I'll take the maze layouts of the late 90s over the tight corridor crap we have now and the piss easy regening health that comes with it......

Recommended rogue-like games on DS?

Very entertaining podcast as usual. Although I'm mainly a PC gamer, I have never played WoW so I got a little bit bored about the Cataclysm part too. Still interesting though.

But the part about Epic Dungeon made me want to try the rogue genre. Are there any similar games you would recommend on the DS? What do you think about the DS version of Shiren?

Planescape Torment

Brad,

GoG has a sale on a bunch of it's games and Planescape Torment is one of the games.

Seconded. Great place for old classics, which for the most are updated so they can run on most pc today.

A-holes in the hallway

Isn't that the zinger after good night and bon chance?

The DS version of Shiren is

The DS version of Shiren is very good. The DS actually has quite a few good Rogue-likes worthy of checking out -- and they tend to vary a bit in terms of challenge and whatnot.

Shiren is a good starting point, though.

I own Planescape, but I've

I own Planescape, but I've been eyeing Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, and some other classics over at GoG. Definitely liking what they're doing.

@Tim Yeah it is, I was just

@Tim

Yeah it is, I was just thanking you for leaving it in.

I'm kind of disappointed

I'm kind of disappointed with the PS3 hate. The podcast crew supports the indie game that requires you to die and try again, yet everyone is overlooking Demon's Souls for the PS3. Is that title not worthy as well?

I'm a WoW n00b

I was waiting for the right moment to jump onto the WoW bandwagon and it came when a friend gifted me all the games on the occasion of Cataclysm's release. I'm still only lvl 63 on my very first character and I like it a lot. I especially enjoy questing and levelling. The people I see doing the same quests as me are almost all the same level as me. I haven't figured out yet how to tell if they're veterans playing an alt or n00bs like me.

All in all, my experience is nothing like what you guys are talking about.
