MMORPGs are Anything But (1:13) – This is the first of these mini panels from the Wyvern Theatre. They argue that MMORPGs as we know them are not in fact anything like what their “genre” would lead us to believe.
The Game Makes the Community (15:59) – This is the second of these mini panels from the Wyvern Theatre.
