iTunes Reviews

kalasoppa Left a FIVE Star review on iTunes Finland!

Great DDO themed podcast

I always look forward to a new episode from Pineleaf and Drac, who have become key members of the DDO podcast community. Their perspective on the game is a bit different (somewhat more casual) from mine, which is great and has a positive impact on my gameplay too. The podcast has branched out to cover table top and other gaming beyond DDO, but I won’t hold that against them. 🙂 My favourite episodes of Players News (and DDOCast and Damsels) are the ones where they visit each others’ shows. The production quality is top notch, so a pleasure on the ears as well as on the brain.

Jeff On Could This Been Ravenloft Pricing

When you purchased either MotU or SC you could purchase 11,000 DDO points for $59.99 and there was an upgrade offer for SC for $39.99.

Many players spent $159.97 on SC.
