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.
Whether it's talking about a giant's love for a space hampster or the dire importance of sweatpants on superheroes, the Massively OP Podcast team will stop at nothing to get to the bottom of these significant MMO industry stories from this past week. Well, they'll probably stop for McFlurries, because that sweetness is the bomb, yo.
Massively Overpowered's first week in operation couldn't have come at a more turbulent time in the industry. Fortunately, the podcast team of Bree and Justin are here to guide you through all of the earthshattering news that happened this past week, including the Daybreak firings and WildStar's precarious situation.
We're back in business as the brand-new Massively OP Podcast, and hosts Bree and Justin spend the hour bringing you up to speed on their gaming, the new website, MMO news, and listener emails. Join us for our maiden voyage!
As you might imagine, that didn't sit well with us. Instead of going quietly into that good podcasting night, we've decided to take our show elsewhere -- right here! So farewell Massively Speaking and hello to Massively OP, a weekly discussion of MMO adventures, news, and opinions.
We might be tweaking the show format a little, but what you've come to love and expect from Massively Speaking will endure in this new podcast. We hope to have our very first episode up next week, so bookmark this page, subscribe to our RSS feed, and tell your friends!
Thank you for your past and future support,
Bree and Justin
