Way Too Casual #002!
After a miniature holiday-induced delay, Way Too Casual has returned with more splendid casual gaming splendidness! For our second episode, Joe, Jay and John have summoned a guest speaker: Chris from GamerSafe.com. Why? Because we have a very serious topic to discuss, something that makes gamers near and far shudder with fear: microtransactions. That heavy topic along with a full arsenal of game reviews can be yours with one simple click!
At the end of every episode, we take some time to interact with our listeners. If you've got a question, comment, anectode or anything else to share, send us a Skype voice mail or drop us a good old fashioned e-mail. We love hearing from everyone!
