curt listens to many podcasts, and has already elluded in previous 'instances' that he also listens to the 1up legendary thread p'cast too, which had some excellent wotlk info in it that neither the instance or wow insider touched upon.it's odd as a brit, as we have no freaking idea who curt is, other than someone relatively famous over there. Whilst i like the fact he seems down to earth, he's a gamer, and has a game company, i can't help but feel he's only on the instance because of his fame, rather than for anything new he's bringing to the table. i mean, the instance podcast was kick ass before he joined. :D

Easy tiger, some of us Brits know exactly who Curt is! :-)One good reason to have in on there is because his company is creating an MMORPG and he is intimately involved in its genesis. As a result he does bring something new to the table, that being a more outside-WoW view on MMORPG's in general, and an appreciation of the structure and process of their development that highlights aspects that as a pure gamer I for one would not have thought of. And he seems like an all-round good guy as well!

Curt's also been an MMO Gamer for quite some time, so he definitely has the credibility from the fan side as well. He played Everquest back when it was the biggest thing out there.

heh. don't get me wrong. I'm not bad mouthing the guy; he seems to be genuinely down to earth, and interested in the same things that drove me to listen to the instance in the first place, and have kept me going back week after week. Just, i don't necessarily think he brings anything new to the table on the instance podcast. e.g. he had to leave the show half way through last week. was the second half better, or worse without him there. discuss.or rather, take vendor trash, as another wow podcast, which is just one person ranting (and a very good rant that i agree with 99% of the time), week after week. That format works well. Would it work as well if i joined him? i doubt it.
