Massively Speaking Episode 295: The money show

Podcasts, MMO Industry, News Items, Opinion, Massively Meta, Massively Speaking, Miscellaneous

AA
How much money would you drop on a pre-purchase for a free-to-play game? That seems like a trick question, but as the Massively Speaking crew finds out, it's somehow a serious question in the MMO industry. Join us for another great show as we debate moneys, murder, and Evony. Wait, who put Evony in this show? Must've been the intern, Yogash. Stupid Yogash.

With convention season in full swing and a rather big-name zombie MMO announced during this past week, your humble neighborhood podcasters have plenty to gab about. Warning: There might be rants. There might be many rants. This might be the most ranty show that ever ranted. Be prepared.

Bree and Justin are not in a joking mood this week. They are certainly not fooling around on this podcast. Their pants are not on fire and they are most certainly not liars. It's an entire podcast delivered with a straight face and a clean-cut attitude. Also, they talk about mankinis.

It's a certain launch week for a certain title that's certainly been anticipated by millions, so there's a good chance that the podcasters will at least give it a brief mention on this week's show. Also in today's podcast: the secret ingredient for figgy pudding, why cosmetics make Justin insanely happy, and how developers are telling players to go to their room and fight it out.

We've got a hodge-podge of topics for today's episode, ranging from new game announcements to beta transitions to why modders might be a bit grumpy this week.

Is that spring ahead? It matters not to the Massively team, since being cooped up inside just means that there's more time to play games! This week on the podcast we talk about the future plans for several MMOs, a revamped UI, and another studio's stab at cleaning up its MMO forums.

Massively Speaking Episode 286: The gang's all here

Podcasts, MMO Industry, Massively Meta, Massively Speaking, Miscellaneous

Massively Speaking is experimenting with a new technology that will change podcast recordings each and every time you listen to them, offering an unlimited array of opinions and branching conversations. Maybe this time you'll hear Justin sing, or Bree rant, or special guest star Snoop Dog offer keen insight into Middle East politics. You'll never know! And the best part is that you can listen to it again... and again... and again!

This week we've invited several Massively staffers on board to answer a few roundtable questions, a couple of pieces of news, and an interesting mailbag query.

It was the best of times; it was the worst of times. With NDA lifts and layoffs, previews and promises, this past week-in-MMO didn't leave us speechless. On the contrary, Justin and Bree have many words to utter about all of the craziness going on in the industry -- almost an entire hour's worth. Can you believe it?

Massively Speaking Episode 284: Your opinion is invalid

Disclaimer: Massively Speaking is both a news show and an opinion show. Objectivity has nothing to do with our viewpoints, snarky remarks, and keen insight into the workings of MMOs. We will demonstrate this as we talk about certain games under NDAs, new studios taking over old franchises, and what 200,000 subscribers means, more or less, in the large scheme of things.

One thing's for sure: January surely went out with a bang! Bree, MJ, and Justin almost don't know where to start on the news for this past week in Massively Speaking, but that's certainly better than having nothing to talk about. From strange collaborations to an 18-hour NDA, from pre-order controversy to a studio being raided by the feds, we've got it all in this week's episode!
