    It’s the second time when i’ve seen your site. I can see a lot of hard work has gone in to it. It’s actually good.

    I wanna give a Da Bomb to the Free To Play Cast!!!

    Your connection with your fans( and the gaming community as a whole ) is something I didn’t quite expect when I watched the first episode. The fact that all of you are gamers and all of you are, therefore yourselves, effected by the news that you inform your listeners of is something that I find to be quite comforting. That coupled with the fact that you’re so social with your fans( and I’m sure with the naysayers as well ) makes it even better. And on an off-note, thank you, Free To Play Cast for just being so damn entertaining. πŸ™‚

    Ps: I also go by the username Aeirn. I hope you take over the internet one of these days Magicman!! πŸ™‚

    • Magicman on March 21, 2012

      Thank you for the kind words Valuyn! We are all in the same boat, we get to play good games and not so good games so talking about it and calling it like it is helps us all!
      -Magicman

      P.S. Don’t let the world know of my evil internet take over plans! πŸ˜›

    I would like to give a Da Bomb to Gamigo!

    Thier site got hacked like a few of the other free to play sites as of late, BUT , Gamigo gave every player 10$ to compensate for the loss of down time to spend on any of thier games..
    Not a bad way to show thier fans they care about them.

    Addicted to this show
    Answer to the weekly question would be GunBound. Even though I would not listen to the music at any time other than playing GB, the soundtrack is very fitting to the gameplay & cartoony artstyle of the game, and is one of the few soundtracks of FTP games that has stood out to me..

    A 2-part question I have that is kind of long, but hopefully has a short answer: are you guys still planning an Allods guild/clan? Also what race/class characters do you guys play?
    Keep up the good work

    Hello Magicman!! I always follow the eps yet hardly post. I know you mentiton Aion alot and it really is fun execpt….bad support. I want to give A Bomb for their support. My reason why is because I joined in for their rallying the troops event and have yet to login due to an issue. I told them about it and never got a response and then after a few days I figured out why I could not login and even told them what and how to fix it. It is march the 16th and still no help…

    Also my opinion on the tablet is i would rather play mmopgs on my psp.

    • Magicman on March 18, 2012

      Thanks for being a fan. I have to agree with you about NCSoft support. I even told the story of a 2 hour chat support session on the show previous to this one.
      Thanks!

      • EvilRukia on March 18, 2012

        I just wanna sa thankyou for replying to my post. I also want to say I remember that ep. It dealt with the trial and at the end you were mailed a free 15 days right?

        • Magicman on March 21, 2012

          Yep! You got it! Oh by the way those 15 free days were now negated by the F2P conversion going in on April 11th…guess I lost afterall! πŸ™‚

    Great Episode. On the topic of tablets, Window’s Tablets may be using Tegra 3 processors. Nvidia and Microsoft have been closely working with each other to get Tegra 3 running well on their new Windows 8 tablet OS. So, on the software and hardware side, I don’t think we’ll be seeing problems with MMO’s. On the topic of input lag on tablets. If the input lag of 100 milliseconds is true, that doesn’t translate to 1 second, but rather .1 second. 100 centiseconds would equal one second. Also, I don’t know what Tegra 3’s input lag is, but they showed off a tech demo that showed that even with all 10 fingers on the screen, Tegra 3 was recognizing 200 samples per second of touch input, which would make playing games and MMO’s a breeze.

    Ya i am back. Just one more comment on the tablet for gaming.

    If they added – Tobii PCEye _ for a characters movements leaving your 2 thumbs for hotkeys. I would deffinately be interested than.

    Don’t Know What Tobii PCEye is ?

    here it is running a flight simulator – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfnS2rLEdqc

    Hi, First time watch the show and i have to admit that it’s great, cant wait till the next one. For the tablet thing, i wont get it because i like the feeling when i’m sitting on the computer and using the mouse better, and you cant find the comfortable play an online game with like 4 fingers =.=”. And if i have to choose a game that’s free to play and i have to pay for it, i would choose Dota, its have the most balance thing and alot of teamwork.

    • Magicman on March 16, 2012

      Thanks so much for the compliment! We hope you’ll stay and check out some of the other shows we have running on the site here. I agree with you. I will not be running out to buy a tablet for gaming. I also agree that on some games control will be a HUGE issue.

      Thanks!

    Another great show and many thanks for the advice – started Aion already and yup looks like exactly what I have been looking for (nick2209 on YouTube).

    On tablet absolutely no chance as I like my big screen/mouse/keyboard – but what I don’t get is if the guy in the ad is eating those snacks/choc while playing isn’t the screen just going to be one greasy mess? Or are they inventing a new smear free screen? Wish my phone had one if so.

  10. Dizzyjay on March 16, 2012

    I forgot to give bombs, so here goes: A-bomb to Webzen for not giving out a date for C9’s next stage, I’ve checked everywhere for a date, facebook, site, forum. Nothing….. But hey on facebook they got a new trailer and screenshots heh..e….he…….. NO!!!!!! I want to know, when is the game gonna go to the next stage. Some people got into VIP testing can’t wait anymore, but just think about all those who didn’t get in, giving out a date is like showing that they care about all those others who didn’t get into VIP testing.

  11. Sage on March 16, 2012

    Hey magicman another great episode :). I would like to give an A Bomb to aeria games for shutting down Kingdom Heroes and the worst thing is they dont tell you whats wrong aswell as the only reason the game messed upwas becaus of the GM’s running the games as they never listened to the community lol. It made me sad to hear it will be shutting down on april 15 because it was my first ever mmorpg :'(

  12. Ebouth on March 16, 2012

    Hello again and as always thanks for the show.
    I don’t think I would buy a tabled for 2 reasons:
    First, I don’t really have the money and second I really like to play MMO’s with a mouse. I must atmid that it looks fun to play with fingers only, but I can’t see it happens to mine.

    Then for the logo, do you wand something with a bomb immage or not ,just a question. I don’t know how mutsh time I have I resendly got 18 so my life got somewhat louder and I have a bit less time to spare. πŸ™‚

    For the weekly question, I can’t make up what game has the best soundtrack but I can think of the wurst in my opinion, S4 League, I just get soo stressed out if I let it on if I am playing it with that background music that I shut it of and play some youtube soundtracks.

    Thill next week.

    • Magicman on March 16, 2012

      Hi Ebouth!

      Congrats on your birthday! For the logo you can decide on whatever you want! πŸ™‚

    best soundtrack is with no doubts Neo Steam the game was taken down by atlus but it had this awesome elevator music and to top it off you had to grind over 100 levels with that require “bi-gillions” of exp to get thru, i dont know how i got over 70 lvls on that game but yeah good mind numbing times. Now let me ask you (all of you guys) this; what was the most “mind numbing” mmo you have tried?

    Keep up the good work guys, and i’m sorry that my Photoshop skills are sad so i cant make anything beyond stick figures but i’m looking forward to the creativity of our community.
    With that said is time to go back to do some more tank science also Da-bomb @ World of tanks its pretty fun and irritating but worth a try

  14. Tiburon on March 16, 2012

    well if you guys want someone to help you guys do a video on League of Legends, i’m not the best player but i’ve played long enough to know a lot about the game (since May last year i believe). i’ve got plenty of free time over the weekends but not so much on weekdays (school and such).

  15. Inflictious on March 16, 2012

    Hey Magicman !

    Great show as always !

    About the Tablet (my personaal opinion)
    I feel you would end up having clashes with pc users and tablet users for hardcore Raiding guilds.When you have 10 man raids and that slight bit of delay could cost your whole team a wipe , Healer on a tab would not even keep up to a pc user. My 8 fingers and 2 thumbs can do alot more than a tabel users 2 thumbs.Tablet users in the long run i can see being treated as the player with 300 ping.I really can’t see a tablet user even competeing with a pro pc gamer.
    Remember just my thought for those of you that plan on buying one , But it won’t be me.( They will just be easy xp for me)

    Da bomb – I really can’t even come close to how much this game will break new ground in the F2P world.
    .
    FireFall & Red 5 Studio’s –
    3 week’s now i have been in beta, last week was ho hum nothing special, until last night’s 3.5 GiG download
    WOW after implementing the patch yesterday this is really ground breaking to the fps and mmorpg world. You say your bored of the fps games Selfius trust me on this you will be hooked. There is so much action, The world is huge , The monsters incredible. I love that when you make 1 character you can play as all 5 classes and switch between classes in town within seconds. Each class starts at lvl 1 meaning if you don’t play that class you don’t lvl it!
    I could go on and on and on and on, REALLY!!!
    As for what you were talking about at the end of the video , this would and could have been a subsciption game. ( I would pay )

    As for your question this week…. Gunz the Duel – loved the music had a rock feel to it and after playing it for 8 years it never gets old.

      Hi Inflictious,
      Thank you as always for your feedback!

      I am also in the Firefall Beta, but you know we are still under NDA right? This means we cannot talk about any details for the game at all right now.

      Thanks,
      -Magicman

      • Inflictious on March 16, 2012

        lol , I know but it has me more excited than any other f2p or p2p game in along time. ( just like when i was a kid waiting for santa :D) So much potential i am seeing in this diamond. I do feel sorry for alot of the low end pc users.

        Thnx for the responce and take care !

    been playing it for like 6 hours straight and i’m only here because of the server crash πŸ™

  17. Dizzyjay on March 15, 2012

    That was awesome, great job guys, love the show.

    I like the idea of the tablet, but my main problem with it is also the hardware. The delay and the touch screen typing, I think I am just gonna use keyboards, since I don’t even need to look at it to type.

    For league of legends if you guys ever gonna play it. I would love to join you guys if possible. Recently just playing a lot of custom and AI games just to get my build order right. Since I hit that point once and stopped playing on that account. Now I have another account, and this time I am gonna play it more carefully.

    As for the question of the week: Well up until now, I think Aion and Rusty hearts had some pretty nice music. I don’t know, its just my opinion.

    Good luck to you out there, can’t play Aion now since my account is deactivated until release date. So going to play league of legends or try out something new.

    Have fun out there!!!
    And in league of legends don’t get greedy and tower dive!!!! πŸ˜€

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
