Is there nothing more joyous, more jovial than spending an afternoon crunching hard numbers to deduce the financial state of studios? No, unless it's listening to Bree and Justin put on their best nerdy glasses to do it for you!

Bree and Eliot are fresh off a weekend BlizzCon bender, the type full of heady news and weird regret. Today on the show, the co-hosts mull over the news from the convention and imagine what cosplay they'd wear if money and shame were no object. Sexy murloc? Tax accountant Thrall? Overly enthusiastic esports commentator? The possibilities are endless.

Today on the show, Bree and Justin tackle the numerous patches that came out this past week across the world of MMOs. They also wonder what they would do if their games accidentally disbanded their guilds. Probably panic and widespread rioting, if Justin is involved.

As expected, Final Fantasy XIV made its big expansion announcement at Fanfest this past weekend, and the Massively OP Podcast team is here to pick over the surprising details of the reveal. It's more than just Stormblood, however, as WoW's 7.1 patch, Daybreak's mysterious new project, and a sad goodbye to a children's MMO take up the hour.

This past week was reveal after reveal in the MMO world, and the Massively OP Podcast has you covered with detailed analysis of all of the fun. Was the most exciting part a new Blur trailer? The release of One Tamriel at last? Or a one-two punch of EverQuest expansion announcements?

In this week's show, Bree and Justin digest the news of an unexpected (well, mostly unexpected) new major MMO in development. Is it too early to get excited about New World? Will it just be another gankbox? Is this the direction that the industry needs to take? Why is Amazon Game Studios going this route?

When MMORPGs are casually tossing the phrase "rise of" into their expansion titles, you know you're in for a struggle against a huge boss... that won't be rising anywhere, except perhaps to be killed for the millionth time in a raid. As Justin solemnly contemplates this, MJ and Eliot join the cast to bring the whole production down to earth.
