The GuildMag Podcast: Episode 54 – Rollback!

It’s the 4th year anniversary and special guest AgeNightRoad joins Aaron and Miko on today’s show to talk about Guild Wars 2 at age 4. Aaron’s internet died on us near the beginning, but we carried on to talk about this week’s community and game news!  The rendering process affected the audio and video syncing for which we apologize.
