What truly matters in the grand scheme of video games? Is it the money that teams raise to make them? Is it unnecessary censorship and forum drama? Is it trendy outfits that allow us to play virtual Barbie doll? Maybe it's all these things and more. That's why we have a top professional podcasting team, to hash these issues out!
Join us on the podcast as we talk about what we've been playing in MMOs, the top news stories from the past week, and topics that listeners have submitted!
The Massively OP Podcast crew learned many lessons from the MMO industry this week. We learned that players will get upset if you offer dolphins to some but not to all. We learned that VR is still a thing. We learned that the end of one MMO might mean the beginning of another. And we learned that sharing really is caring!
We also have a very special giveaway for podcast listeners, so tune in!
When an MMO delivers an update to nerf difficult content, it will cause a rift deeper than that of the North versus the South. Between veterans proclaiming the doom of carebearism and casuals rejoicing over being included, our podcasting crew wades in to deliver their thoughts before being overwhelmed by the mob.
Also in this week's episode, llamas! Er, that should be "betas." A different beast entirely.
It's been one doozy of a busy week here at Massively Overpowered, between our Kickstarter campaign conclusion, PAX East, studios closing, games celebrating anniversaries, and a certain alpha revving up. Can we sum it up in a single hour? The podcast fairies will sprinkle their magic dust and make it happen!
This week on the cast we welcome Eliot, who has returned from a trip to ArenaNet to find out all sorts of secrets and reveals for Guild Wars 2. We have a lot of ground to cover, with thoughts (and tributes) on Leonard Nimoy, crowdfunding updates, and a new expansion to a very old MMO.
