Below is the agenda we have planned, but always keep in mind that what we discuss may ebb and flow according to what you, the viewers, dictate. See you then!

- With 4.1 just around the corner, is there really enough beef to draw back in the majority of players who got “bored” and moved on to other things, such as RIFT?
- We’re now 5 months into the expansion, are we really happy how things are going, and what are our plans for the next few months in WoW?
- Wii 2 “Refit” is rumored to be announced at E3 this year (Mordil was right, if it does happen). Do we feel that the planned updates are needed to make it a more “serious” gaming console, or is it just another marketing ploy by Nintendo to keep customers interested now that both the PS3 and 360 offer motion controls?
