Flash Point 50: Did We Really Make It This Far?

flashpoint-podcastWe get a little bit retrospective this episode given it’s our 50th one. March 12th, 2011 was when Episode 1 went live, and since then we’ve been plugging away roughly every 2 weeks, talking Star Wars The Old Republic and then MMOs more broadly.

To coincide with this significant anniversary, Simon, Kristy and regular guest Matthew ‘Scope’ Pearce take a look back but also at the current MMO news as always. A MYSTERY GUEST also makes an appearance two-thirds of the way through the show.
