Main Discussion

A lot of the reviews we’ve seen (Massively OP, Obsidian Ant, Hawkes Gaming) have all commented on the performance and networking issues. However, they have all commented that there are sections of Odyssey where they are having fun.  We are joined by Cmdrs Kerrash, Vingtetun and Jthar Birrrelle.

So once the performance issues are resolved, where is the fun in Odyssey?

    Was a great show. Enjoyed the round table format. Colin did a terrific job keeping things on track and good to hear more of his own thoughts. Thanks to all. Hope Ben enjoys his time off for good(?!) behaviour and hope to see him again soon!
