Episode 6 - Good Luck, Scott Hartsman!

Hello again, MMO Radio friends! We're happy to return again for Episode 6 this week as we wish one of our absolute favorite MMO developers, Scott Hartsman, a fond farewell and good luck as he parts ways with Trion Worlds. Most probably recognize Scott as the Executive Producer of RIFT, but we look all the way back to the development days of Warcraft II and Everquest 1, how he's credited with "saving" Everquest 2 from a precipitous fall, and do our best track how he's become one of the "legendary producers" of the industry.

Not content to let bad news linger, Trion followed up the announcement with another, much happier one: they're set to publish ArcheAge in the west! As interesting as this sandbox looks, we had to spend a few minutes breaking down why that news is fan-freaking-tastic.

In Quick Hits, Chris -- free of the NDA -- shares why EVE counterpart, DUST514, might wind up a flop on the Playstation 3. Adam lightens the mood by introducing us to the Ultimate Gamer's Storage Bag. Also, an awesome free Pokemon-like on iOS call Haypi Monsters! (Archage, Culture, Dev, DUST 514, EVE Online, EverQuest, Everquest 2, Industry, PC, PS3, Rift, Rift: Storm Legion, WarCraft II - Tides of Darkness)
