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.

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.

Is Pokémon GO an MMO? Is it going to consume society as we know it? Is it making virtual reality super-jealous? You just know that Bree and Justin had to tackle this global phenomenon as they get back into the swing of things.

Beach parties, fireworks, and meaty MMORPG summer updates are all the signs of the dog days of summer -- and that ain't a bad thing at all, my friends. Bree and Justin sip from glasses of ice tea, fan themselves, and yammer on about all of these big game patches that are landing this month.
