Couch Podtatoes Episode 19: PvP-Side Up

Check it out.. I get a space to rant and ramble about my love of open world PvP. How it can enrich an experience but also a few of the pitfalls. Oh and talk about Archeage a little.

We covered many different community posts in the conversation as well, and you can find links to those below. Enjoy!
