By now you’ve heard, WOW is going free to play (at least the first twenty levels..). Love it or hate it, World of Warcraft was (and still is) undoubtedly the most popular MMO in history. World of Warcraft was so popular at one point that it boasted an insane 12 million subscribers. That’s 12 million people paying a MONTHLY fee of $15.00. Blizzard and Activison were making so much money that they could probably feed a hungry 3rd world nation sloppy joes on a regular basis (yum).
We appreciate games with great writing and are happy to have author Patrick Weekes on episode 75 of the Rated NA Podcast. Mr. Weekes will be joining us tomorrow from the wilds of Canada to discuss his brand new novel “The Palace Job”, which is available September 26th on Amazon.com (or now digitally!). If you have any questions for Mr. Weekes about Mass Effect, Bioware, writing, or The Palace Job, please ask here or send us a message on Twitter @NerdAppropriate. The more questions the better.
“The most powerful man in the republic framed her, threw her in prison, and stole a priceless elven manuscript from her family. With the help of a crack team that includes an illusionist, a unicorn, a death priestess, a talking warhammer, and a lad with a prophetic birthmark, Loch must find a way into the floating fortress of Heaven’s Spire-and get past the magic-hunting golems and infernal sorcerers standing between her and the vault that holds her family’s treasure. It’d be tricky enough without the military coup and unfolding of an ancient evil prophecy-but now the determined and honourable Justicar Pyvic has been assigned to take her in. But hey, every plan has a few hitches.”
