Instanced housing vs. public housing? Oh, the battle is on in this week's podcast, as hosts Justin and Bree battle it out for the most comfortable living spaces and poshest decorations. There might even be a metaphorical throw pillow fight or two during the proceedings.

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

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

RIFT
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.

Massively Speaking Episode 283: NDAmark

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!

Massively Speaking Episode 280: Alpha is the new beta

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

In this week's riotous podcast, Bree and Justin give each other the silent treatment. Yup, it's 65 minutes of pure cold, stony silence that will make you feel so uncomfortable that you yourself will end up babbling just to hear someone talk.

Naw, we actually have a lot to talk about, including what's coming in 2014 for many of your favorite MMOs and studios. What, you thought we could actually shut up? Never!

Massively Speaking Episode 279: Bring it on, 2014!

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

It's the first Massively Speaking for 2014, and Bree and Justin are charging out of the gate with wild-ass predictions, goofy mistakes, and keen insight into what little news we've gotten from this year so far. Studios messing up? Studios fixing things? Studios trying to make money? Looks like 2014 might not be so different after all.

Massively Speaking Episode 276: Ever, Larry

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

It wouldn't be the end of the year and the holiday season if there weren't a heap of weird, wild, and wooly stuff going on in the news! This week, Larry and Justin put on their Santa beards (it doesn't translate well over audio, but the beards were there) to cover an expansion launch, a major streaming controversy, and eye-popping previews of upcoming content. It's a hoot, folks. A hoot.

Massively Speaking Episode 275: Turkey coma

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

We are sad to report that Bree and Justin have fallen into turkey comas following the mass consumption of foods. However, advanced medical scientists have tapped into their brainwaves to allow them to discuss the week's news via a series of Morse code beeps and boops. Break out your pencils and paper, because decoding this episode might be a bit of a bear!

Massively Speaking
Do you have a beta key? Are you excited that you have a beta key? Do you want to break NDA and crow about your beta key? Well... don't. Bree and Justin have an important service announcement in today's podcast telling you why this idea is not your friend. Also, they have all of the beta keys to every MMO that's yet to come out and you should be, like, totally jealous.
