Game On #62 | The State of MMOs in 2015: This week Chris and Ryan take to the mics with special guest and new/returning writer, Beau Hindman! We cover the week’s news — including the “business as usual” layoffs at Daybreak Studios and more — before getting to our main topic: What is the State of MMOs in 2015? We break down exactly where the industry is at, from business models to designs to the ultimate question of whether MMOs are long for this world. Music by Michael Gordon Shapiro.

Lots of fun! Thanks guys!
