This month, we have a special roundtable episode that includes members of The Gaming and Entertainment podcast network. This rowdy crew saw fit to discuss all manner of gaming topics, from upcoming expansion packs to the changing mobile gaming scene to Syl’s hidden desire to shower with World of Warcraft soap. Please be sure to visit all of the fine podcasts of my guests this month!
It’s no secret that the sales of mobile devices have skyrocketed in the last five years, especially in relation to PC sales. It’s also pretty apparent that one of the main goals of an MMO is to tempt players into spending as much time as possible playing the game, thinking about the game, and contributing to the game. Why, then, don’t more MMO’s supplement the base PC game with some sort of mobile element? The devices are prolific. The opportunity is ripe to keep players thinking about and interacting with your game all throughout the day, as they have a few spare minutes.
