Rift: Guardian Starting Zone – Episode 1

In this episode of Vagabond Gaming I jump into Rift to check out the free to play cash shop and how the game plays through the Guardian starting zone.

Vagabond Gaming – Minecraft Magic Farm Episode 1

The end of the episode is bit of a cliff hanger so be sure to check out episode 2.
