The multiplayer gaming podcast is back and this week starts off with our early reviews of the newly launched F2P MMORPG Elyon. We then head down the dark path of Destiny 2's terrible decision to lock dungeons behind upgraded editions of the Witch Queen expansion and finish off with quick hit news from FFXIV, Blizzard, and Steam! All that and more on this week's Always Online!
