Couch Podtatoes Episode 43: CSM and the Hidden Politics of MMOs


So as I mentioned, this week’s show should have technically been last week’s show but I went on a trip to visit family I hadn’t seen in a very long time, so I didn’t feel too bad on missing out on a show. However, Eri rounded up Doone to talk about EvE’s CSM which wrapped up in recent months. They recorded over the weekend, but as the resident editor/poster, I didn’t get my hands on their recordings until I got back from my vacation. At that point it was late enough that I decided to just release this episode today. We’ll be getting back on schedule this week.

I’m not big on EvE; don’t know much about it, but I do respect all of the craziness that it has spawned. Eri and Doone go into details of the CSM and many political aspects of other MMOs as well.
