Episode 30: We Never Had Any Idea What We Were Doing
It's October 2nd as I write this. This episode has been done for two weeks now, and I just couldn't motivate myself to post it. Mission: Nexus is coming to an end, but our love of WildStar remains. We're still players, we just don't have the time to produce the podcast anymore. It's not you, it's us. We promise. I've turned over in my head what I would say in this post when the day came. All I've come up with is Thank You. Thank you to our fans, thank you to Carbine, and thank you for all of the fond memories, laughs and fun over the last 18 months. This experience has been incredible, and we will forever be grateful for your support. See you on Nexus. We'll bring the Space Bacon. Sincerely, Datix

Episode 29: Megazords!
We're back, and boy do we have some big topics to cover! Carbine announced that WildStar will be moving to Megaservers in an upcoming change, and the crew gives our thoughts on what that means for the game, players and the future of WildStar. PAX Prime happened, and we got some new, juicy details out of the event regarding a solo dungeon: Omni-Core 1. Unfortunately, it's not all good news this episode, as we discuss the depature of Jeremy Gaffney. We also want to give a special thanks to Arawulf, whose support of Carbine and WildStar, as well as the community is appreciated. We'll miss you Mike, but there's always a chair here if you feel the itch to talk WildStar on a podcast in the future. Thanks not only for your support and encouragement, but your friendship. Enough of the sappy stuff, let's get to it. Episode 29 is here, and the crew ain't goin' nowhere yet. Enjoy!

Episode 28: Old School
Long-time listeners are going to enjoy this one. The Crew decided to take a night and just chat like the good old days. No segments, no crazy over-production, just a good old conversation about WildStar. We cover what we've been up to (or not up to, as it were.) We also talk a bit about the Gamescom reveals of Shade's Eve, The Defile and changes to the Silver Dungeon Attunement step. Finally, Datix takes a moment to climb up on his soapbox and talk some sense into these people preaching doom and gloom about the state of the game. It's a good old-fashioned Mission: Nexus Podcast!

Episode 27: Time Management
Hey, look! Mission: Nexus is publishing really late again. Shocker. Well this time I have a valid excuse involving a talking raccoon and a downright heartwarming tree. Either way, the irony of this show's topic isn't lost on us. That's right, we're talking about time management. How do you balance playing an MMO like WildStar alongside your regular responsibilities? The crew gives you our tried-and-true methods, along with some tips to effectively spend your time in the game as well! We've got some fun letters from our listeners this time around, and a tolerable D&D regarding alternate theme songs for the game's various zones! So better late than never, join us on our 27th episode of Mission: Nexus!

Episode 26: Constructive Crits
Let's face it, nobody's perfect. WildStar and Carbine are pretty darn close, though! Of course, there's always going to be some things in any MMO that annoy players, and the WildStar is no exception. So at the risk of tarnishing our "fanboy" image, the Mission: Nexus crew decided to take an episode to discuss some of the small things in WildStar that bug us. (Spoiler Alert: We still love the game like a tubby kid loves cake.) Of course, we keep the criticism constructive, so don't expect epic levels of angry forum poster rage. We don't roll that way (and neither should you!). Outside of that, we have our usual run of segments lined up. Players saw the loot changes implemented to Dungeons and Adventures this week, so Datix and Domichi return with D&D to give our thoughts on them. Cacuin brings us another edition of This Old Housing Plot, giving you the skinny on Plugs, and we respond to our listener mail in the Mailbag segment. It's a jam-packed episode, weighing in at just under an hour and half!

Episode 25: No Strain, No Gain
We've hit a new milestone with this one, listeners! That's right, 25 amazing episodes of the Mission: Nexus Podcast. This time around, Datix, Domichi and Krissy navigate the topic of the week: WildStar's first big update. We chat about what we've been up to and our thoughts on The Strain, along with responding to some listener emails and the general chit-chat you've come to tolerate. Also, Skya debuts with her new segment on lore, telling us a bit more about the significance of the Brightland name in the WildStar universe. If you enjoy hearing Datix repeatedly screw up because he's fighting a sore throat and all hopped up on Nyquil, then you're going to love this episode. Grab your favorite snack, find a comfy spot, and join us for another hour of the Mission: Nexus podcast!

Episode 24: Too Busy Playing
Well, we're late. Other than a 48-hour Internet outage at Datix's house, there's not a great excuse for it. The siren call of Nexus sang it's way into my brain and shut down my responsibility receptors, and what free time I had was spent playing WildStar. To make it up to you, please accept this gift of Mission: Nexus, now with 50% more podcast! Yep, it's a long one this time around. We had some fun with angry forum posts, spent a little time chatting about what we've been doing so far in the game, and Datix and Domichi took advantage of our delayed release to chat a bit about the Strain flick. There's even a brand-new segment for you Housing fanatics in the audience that we think you'll enjoy. Even if you don't care for housing, you'll want to listen to this one!

Episode 23: Turncoats!
Dude...seriously. This is it. The last episode about a game that isn't even released yet, and what better way to celebrate than being joined by Arawulf! You may know Arawulf as the owner of WildStarFans.net, or his own podcast, the Planet Nexus Cast. He's a great friend of ours, and we're honored he took the time to join us for a discussion of whether or not we feel WildStar is poised to succeed. As always, Datix and Domichi, everyone's favorite podcast duo returns to bring you our look at the recently announced realm names. But stick around people, because the end of the show isn't just the same old Twitter info. There's a bit of a twist this time around, and if you've listened to us for a while, I think you're in for a shock.

Episode 22: The Ritual
So we all have one: The Launch Week Ritual. Maybe you take time off of work to play. Perhaps you tell your family and friends that you love them, but you can't see them again for some time. Of course, it could be that you just hit the grocery store and buy pallets of caffeinated beverages, chips and antacids. Whatever your ritual is, we've got them too, and we decided to share our plans for how we'll spend the first official week of WildStar's launch. Will Cacuin abandon all responsibilities in an attempt to get to 50 first? Will Krissy "accidentally" spill Rockstar into Domichi's machine in an effort to make sure someone has to do the house work? Will Datix fashion some sort of feeding device and spend hours researching the most absorbent diaper brands on the market? (Note: Please don't call the government. I would never neglect my children for a game. Even WildStar.) Well listener, you'll have to tune in to find out! But don't worry, it's not all about how we'll attempt to eat our body weight in junk food and stay awake for 48 hours straight by mainlining energy drinks. We've also got your WildStar news in Nexus Transmissions, and Datix and Domichi put on their sleuthing caps to see what some of the Ex-Carbine Staffers have moved on to. It's all here in our big double-double, Episode 22!

Episode 21: The New Hotness
It's a brand new episode of the Mission: Nexus podcast, now with 50% more Skype Chat noises in the background! (Datix Note: Sorry bout that folks.) As always, we bring you the latest WildStar news, including a rundown of promotions/depatures and all around shuffles at Carbine Studios. The crew also gathered to give you the second half of PAX East story time. Story time you say? That's right, children. Gather 'round and Old Man Domichi will regale you with tales guaranteed to put you on the edge of your seat. Speaking of Domichi, he and Datix have this thing called D&D (you might have heard of it). Well this time, they choose the winner of our Rowsdower plushie giveaway right here live* on the podcast! Finally, since Carbine has been so generous with throwing out bonus beta weekends, we're bringing you a bonus topic this time around: The New UI. We've been waiting to get our hands on this thing since February's preview of the revamp, and we'll give you our thoughts after two weekends of hands-on time with it. So change into something a little more comfortable, grab your favorite drink, turn the lights down real low, and join us for Episode 21 of the Mission: Nexus Podcast!
