G&P Podcast: James Fiddles While Heather Yearns

The Editors  //  March 1, 2011

Multiplayer as copy protection, King's Quest, and Rift.


s a used game worth playing $20 for worth the $20 extra you'll need to pay for online multiplayer? If you've never heard of the King's Quest series, Telltale Games can oblige. And now that we know what Rift is about, what does the MMO mean for World of Warcraft? Michael Ubaldi, Ed Kirchgessner, James Day and Heather Richtmyre discuss.

Music is "Fever" by Helix Eternal.

Wow, that title makes Heather and myself sound like a disillusioned couple.

Just be thankful that I didn't Photoshop your face on top of Nero's.

Hey, look — timely addition to iTunes!

Paying extra for online multi-player is actually good for me. I buy most of my games used, and I have no interest in online multi-player. This policy will likely reduce the price of used games (since they will only feature single-player), and so it will allow me to purchase the game I actually want (i.e. sans online multi-player) at a lower price.

Contrary to EA's objective, this gamer is actually less likely to purchase new while this policy is continued.
