As the team recovers from DragonCon, PAX West, Legion's launch, and Labor Day, it's anything but normal around the Massively OP office. It's fall, and that means that we're wading into expansion and launch season for MMOs, including a couple of significant titles this past week.

For a special holiday weekend show, Eliot and Justin sit down to compare notes about their first week in World of Warcraft: Legion. It's all artifact this and class order hall that, not to mention general oohing and ahhing over all of the new shinies.

Dressed in top hat, tails, frills, and chaffron, the podcast crew is heading to the opera this week! On the show, Bree and Justin talk about a grand return to Karazhan, a lackluster Gamescom, and an MMO that has entered the witness protection program and gotten itself a new name.

While others are grilling fat, plump casings of processed meat filling on their grills, you are sitting inside, creating a 400-foot-tall hot dog king to which all of the locals will bow and pledge their undying service. Who has the better summer experience here? Eliot and Justin return for a kind of strange podcast in which hot dogs, Demon Hunters, and spaceships all make for interesting bedfellows.

For a genre that's alleged to be dying, MMOs certainly do seem to be picking up the pace of news and releases. This week co-hosts Bree and Justin talk about a new expansion announcement, dig into studio finances, and deliver a strongly worded and strangely practiced rant about lockboxes.

It's never easy to watch the slow-motion downfall of an online game, especially when you consider all of the players and studio employees that it affects. This week on the show, Bree and Justin sort through the Red 5 mess and speculate about a Firefall that could have been.

One of the secrets of Massively OP's success is that we obtained -- we won't tell you how (garage sale) -- a genuine magic crystal ball that tells us oracles of future MMO developments. How else could you explain that we know what we know? Press releases? Hah.
