How much money would you drop on a pre-purchase for a free-to-play game? That seems like a trick question, but as the Massively Speaking crew finds out, it's somehow a serious question in the MMO industry. Join us for another great show as we debate moneys, murder, and Evony. Wait, who put Evony in this show? Must've been the intern, Yogash. Stupid Yogash.

This week we've invited several Massively staffers on board to answer a few roundtable questions, a couple of pieces of news, and an interesting mailbag query.
