    Hello everyone on the MMOBomb Podcast.

    One day in November, I was cleaning my Sub list on youtube. I came across MMOBomb. I look though it and saw a podcast episode 241. I watch it and love it.

    I have YouTube Red and a LG V20 w/ 256GB MicroSD.

    Why not, I enjoy it .Download all of the episodes and cancel my Netflix and Hulu subs.

    I just finish listening and now caught up.

    I have a 2 quotes that say it all on how I feel about the Podcast.

    ” 6.5-7 It was a tolerable experience”

                                                    MMOBomb.

    “I’m going get myself diabetes with all this smooth butter ”

                                                    MMOBomb.

    As an aside, you guys didn’t get the references to last show? Sadness.
    __

    A-bomb to ‘the sky is falling’ naysayers. They crop up in every game and frankly it’s always annoying. Just go play another game, you’re not doing anything for this one.

    For the question of the week – it depends, I have two ‘modes’, ‘story mode’ in which I want to get immersed in a world, and ‘technical mode’ in which I care mostly just about gameplay aspects.
    For ‘story mode’ I play character creation open world rpgs, i.e. any Elder Scrolls or Fallout game, or Kingdoms of Amalur: The Reckoning. These let me ‘roleplay in my head’ in other words, which character I made determines what quests I will do and how I will do them, whether or not I’m willing to commit criminal acts, and how I will respond to NPCs. It makes it a different experience every time.
    For ‘technical mode’ I play any Disgaea or Disgaea universe offshoots (Like Makai Kingdom). I like creating a platoon of unique characters with which to delve into the item world or the cave of ordeals and the like.
