    Episode 18.6: Tribute to Betty White, EA’s Cancelled Harry Potter MMO, GoldenEye 007’s Return, and more

    Welcome back to another episode of the Online Warriors Podcast! We're ringing in the New Year with a fresh slate of nerd news topics to cover:


    Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts premieres on HBO Max (8:21)

    EA reportedly shelved a Harry Potter MMO back in the day (10:09)

    GoldenEye 007 Xbox Achievements have mysteriously appeared online, hinting at a possible new port (18:19)

    The next game from the creator of BioShock is in "development hell" (32:33)


    Next, we roll into what the cast has been up to:

    Techtic spent some time in the kitchen (47:38) and builds his first drone bill of materials (48:27)


    And then, we would be remiss if we did not pay our respects to an American Icon, Betty White. Betty White sadly passed on New Year's Eve at the age of 99. She holds the record for the "Longest TV Career for an Entertainer (Female)" and has been a beacon of joy and laughter for many through her work. We honor her with:


    A tribute reflecting on her career and impact on the world of entertainment (51:26)

Excellent!

Varied perspectives between hosts, topics that are interesting every week, really nice audio quality, and stellar episode art. Plus, the girl thinks Jared Leto is weird and I totally agree. Weirdo for sure. Overall 5 stars.
