This week the guys talk more about Defiance, before launching into a full-length discussion about Neverwinter.
May the fourth be with you, obviously unless you’re not reading this on the fourth in which case…I don’t know what to tell you.
In the Retro Corner for May, we remember Lucasrts Games, as we take a look back at Star Wars Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight
This week on Ding! Live!, the guys are talking about all of the news they can think of to talk about coming out of the MMO side of the game’s industry. This week the guys mainly talk about the games that they’ve been spending their time playing, with Martin playing hour upon hour of Defiance and Calvin delving into the strange, old-school – and decidedly Zelda-esque – world of Graal. They guys then talk about some news which mostly centres around some interesting ideas that The War Z developers are having about how to deal with cheaters. You’ll have to listen to the whole podcast to find out what the gang thought, which you can do by visiting GodisaGeek.com, listening on iTunes or on Stitcher.
Ron Gilbert gives a frustrating yet sumptuous account of how he would piece together the new Monkey Island game he definately ISN’T making.
This week on Ding! Live!, aside from all of the usual news, the guys also spend a great deal of time talking about the recently released third person MMO; Defiance. Adam has played the Xbox 360 version of the game, Calvin the PC with Martin rounding off the trio by having spent time with both versions of the game.

The Story Mechanic is a fortnightly column from Mark Bridle, celebrating narrative and story. This week, shared stories on the sofa.
Rather than the regular Friday show, Ding! was recorded live this past weekend. If you missed it, this is the archived version of the show.
Martin is back this week to chat about the kickstarter projects he’s been playing, whilst Adam isn’t happy with some of the Gears of War: Judgment multiplayer changes, Calvin has gone back to Terraria, and Lee is ignoring BioShock Infinite, in favour of another game. But what game?
On The Dirtsheet this week, Deus Ex: Human Defiance is a “joke”, Adam Orth thinks always online consoles are fine and LucasArts is no more
Disney have made the surprise announcement today that they have decided to close legendary game studio LucasArts, cancelling its games and laying off 150 staff in the process.
This week the guys are talking about the plethora of news coming out of PAX East, a bunch of new trailers and some new content for older games before Martin goes on a fanboy-level gushing spree about a game that isn’t even out yet; Wildstar. The guys then move on to talking about Neverwinter, for which they recently live streamed the beta (see last week’s WeekenDing!) before Calvin talks about the recently announced expansion for Star Trek Online; Legacy of Romulus. There’s a lot to talk about too, so you’re getting a bumper edition of Ding! this week! Phew!
On the 54th episode of Ding!, and the fifth episode of WeekenDing!, we join Calvin, Martin and Trey as they once again delve into the world of Forgotten Realms, specifically the new Cryptic and Perfect World MMO Neverwinter, this time taking a quick look at something called a Skirmish – essentially a shorter version of a dungeon, lasting about fifteen minutes – before join forces and taking on some quests; including a user created quest from The Foundry.
This week on Ding! the conversation starts with a random question from Calvin about the guys’ favourite vehicles in games. That discussion invariably led onto PlanetSide 2, a game with some of the best vehicular combat we’ve seen in recent years, before talking about favourite mounts from other games in other genres. They guys then talked quite a bit about the closed beta of Defiance they were lucky to be a part of a month or so ago, and whether or not they enjoyed their experience. For anything else, you’re just going to have to listen to the episode! Listen to the entire episode on GodisaGeek.com, iTunes or on Stitcher.
