Question from Ring

Dear hosts

Do you think the fact that Sony and Micro$oft are moving to console based DRM is anti competitive? Do you think it will ne effective in stopping people from sharing and selling games? I think it will successfully put gamestop out of business, but I think it will have no effect on users with no regard for anti circumvention laws. Personally I think this will only accomplish angering users and justifying their violation of copyright law. What do you think will happen, do you think they will follow through? Would you justify making unDRMed copies for your personal use/ backups?



Question from Morumska

dear shane and temple trekkie

year of the dragon 2012, queen black dragon which look like a eastern dragon with 8 eye plus the queen is coming to town ,do you think jagex is on to something? or things happen just at the right time ?

(last second edit : also omg what is with those maggots in the qbd's tummy what has she been eating ?)

also how should one attack quote on quote buyable skills like herb ,construction and prayer since i dont have too much gp to spend on these things.

thank you all and friendship is magical

cheers morumska.

Question from Duke Juker

From your favorite person apparently,

RS Question: Which house portal location do you use? As a member, I'm finding that some locations can be really handy depending on what I'm working on at the time. Is it just personal preference and do you change it often?

Tech Question: Do you think Google and other search engines could do more to stop online piracy (say block torrent sites from coming up)?

Random Question: Cake or pie?

Gaming Question: What do you think will be the best game released this year (including games that have already been released)?

Question from Neimster

Dear Shane and Trekkie,

First off, big fan of the show; I've been listening for a while, but this is my first time taking initiative and asking questions.

1. I just returned to the game from a year-long absence to find that most of my closest friends have quit due to the direction they think the game is headed in. Can you ever see Jagex introducing an update you dislike enough to quit the game forever?

2. Have you seen The Avengers? If so, what are your thoughts on it? Where do you think it stands among the superhero movies of the last couple decades? Also, how long do you think Marvel can maintain the level of success in film they're currently experiencing?



Question from Jonny Great and M4cbenn3tt

Hello Shane and Trekkie,
