Tonight we are down a bunch of folks because it is in fact starting to be that time of the year.  We have a bit of a roll over topic largely talking about the potential effects that World of Warcraft Classic has had on other projects.  This was spurred by a new game from Raph Koster that got initial funding, and continues through a series of discussions about what MMORPGs have lost from the classic era.  We also talk about why none of us are currently playing WoW Classic and the Boycott of Blizzard. Finally we wrap up with some discussion about Supergiant’s game Hades.
