We talk about character classes, graphics, and game play. This is Rhonda’s first MMO experience so listen to hear her inital impression.
We have a couple of screen shots from the game here. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to get shots of our own avatars because the beta run had finished by the time we tried to jump back in to catch them. But these give you a great idea of how beauty that is Dungeons and Dragons Neverwinter and a glimpse of the highly intuitive control layout.
We’d love to hear your feedback in the comments about the show or on Twitter. Are you going to play Neverwinter? Looks pretty exciting to me!

Regina & Rhonda
Regina is a gamer, writer, teacher, and podcaster living in the Pacific Northwest. She completed her Ph.D. in 2011 from Washington State University in Vancouver and continues to teach there part time. Regina’s research interests focus on women and technology, and her dissertation discusses female gamers and identity in digital role playing games. A lifelong geek and technology enthusiast, Regina recently started a Girls Who Code club in support of their mission to close the gender gap in technology.
To continue the conversations about gender and gaming that Regina started during her research, she started a podcast called Game on Girl. Called the “NPR of game podcasts” by Chris Brown of The Married Gamers, the podcast features women involved in the game industry, and tackles some of the complicated issues in the gaming community. Season 2 began in the spring of 2018 and will premiere new episodes monthly.
