Podcast Topic(s)

Ultima 7: The Black Gate Was Released 25 Years Ago. So it seemed fitting to get a bunch of Ultima fans together to discuss the game and its legacy, and why so few games since its release have attempted to imitate it; why are there so few Ultima 7-likes?

And lest you think the discussion remains entirely technical, take heart: we end by discussing some personal stories of the impact that Ultima 7, and/or other Ultima games, had in our lives.
