Massively Speaking Episode 262 PAX Prime 2013
The PAX Prime crew is home from another successful convention, and Justin has plenty of tales to tell Bree. Not that she's listening, of course. She's got mines to craft, and words just get in the way.

Massively Speaking Episode 261 The subs strike back
Even as the rebel forces of F2P celebrate the destruction of the old restrictive Sub Star, the enemy forces have regrouped and staged a comeback that nobody saw coming. Imperial subs have entered the base! Imperial subs have...

As everyone is freaking out about this newfangled "trend" of subscription-only MMOs, the level-headed Bree and the hot-shot pilot Justin are there to blast through the emotional reactions to find the truth reactor behind it all. And then blow it up with a photon wit or two.

Massively Speaking Episode 260
One of the little-known facts about Massively's staff is that we routinely carjack, helicopterjack, and tankjack our way to work every morning. It's become this competition to one-up each other, which is why Brendan ended up driving the Wienermobile into the parking lot last week. It's also why we're all over Grand Theft Auto Online, because that is our life.

While there was plenty of exciting news coming out of SOE Live this past weekend, one story is dwarfing all of the rest: EverQuest Next. MJ joined us from Las Vegas yesterday to give us the first-hand scoop on all of the juicy details.

Meet Justin, the original MMO hipster. He was playing massively multiplayer online games back when the rest of the world was gaming on the Atari 2600. Meet Bree, the original MMO poser. She claims that she grew up playing Star Wars Galaxies and Ultima Online, but she was really just into Second Life and Habbo Hotel. Together they form VOLFORCE, defender of the inner solar system! It's truth, justice, and the Massively way!

Between discussing the official Firefly MMO and a Make-a-Wish tale, it's a week of emotional twists and turns for the hosts of Massively Speaking. Bree's being replaced by her stunt double, Shawn, who will do his darndest to talk in a California valley girl accent.

Massively Speaking 255 A sonnet for spreadsheets
Spreadsheets, seesaws, and songs -- it's going to be a weird, weird show today, folks. Just giving you a heads up about it. Perhaps you should go do something exceedingly normal and boring before giving this a listen so as to counterbalance it. And as always, make sure to take a drink and shout, "MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!" any time that Bree mentions a certain deceased sandbox.

We're back after a week off only to find that the news has piled up on our broadcast desk like nobody's business! So naturally we talk about Ewoks for an hour. This is mostly because Larry is on the show today and he's got the little furballs on the mind.

Massively Speaking Episode 253
It's been a busy week with medium- and small-sized news running rampant through Massively's thoroughfares. It's also been a weird week full of redundancies, such as a game that's launched getting a launch and another game that had a title getting the exact same title. Face it: MMOs bring out the weird in all of us, studios included.

It's never wise to completely write off MMOs -- even after they've been sunsetted. In today's episode of Massively Speaking, Bree and Justin rejoice in the renewed effort behind a languishing game, muse about the flood of console MMOs, and exalt innovative ideas like flexible raids.

That's right: For the 250th episode of Massively Speaking, the guy who was here at the very beginning has returned to chew the news and spit out opinions. This week we have another launch stumble, clueless CEOs, and plenty of talk about something called "Titan."

Massively Speaking Episode 249
When a subscription MMO goes free-to-play, there's always a circus atmosphere surrounding it. The studios use it as an excuse to enjoy a "second launch," players pour out opinions on all sides, and new folks wander into the danger zone out of sheer curiosity.

It's not just about F2P on this week's Massively Speaking; we have game launches, layoffs, previews, and tons of reader mail to cover. Will we have the words to do it? Or will we just end the podcast humming informatively? Jef's on it today, so there definitely will be a song and dance number at some point!
