Episode 2: Hooked

April 30, 2011

Episode 2 is up!

With our special guest, Lady Erinia, we talk about playing WoW, playing WoW a lot, playing WoW too much and playing WoW way too much. We talk about gaming addiction, about how to cope with a partner who plays a lot (and a partner who doesn’t play enough!) and our own gaming habits.

For some background reading on the basics of addictions and gaming addiction, check out:
DSM-IV Criteria for Substance Dependence (the Traditional Dependence)
Wikipedia’s take on Gaming addiction
