Massively Speaking Episode 249: Captain Grumpypants

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

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!

Massively Speaking Episode 248: Duped!

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

Massively Speaking Episode 248
Sometimes it's all about the little details in MMOs: How a character moves. How to create billions in gold due to a duping exploit. What goodies the collector's edition will include. Why losing 1.3 million subscribers is "no biggie." And we're nothing if not about the details on Massively Speaking! Listen to Bree and Justin fact-check in real-time, racing against the clock to stop a terrorist plot to bring down auction houses everywhere!

Massively Speaking Episode 247  TransMMO synergy!
Crossovers are cool, in this humble author's opinion. They not only keep comics spicy and interesting but have offered MMO studios the opportunity to join the hands of two games together in holy geekamony. As Massively Speaking makes a triumphant return this week, we talk about transMMO synergy, Camelot victorious, Flame and Frost, and more.

Bree's sick, but does that mean that her voice has just become 50% more awesome? We think it does. On this week's episode of Massively Speaking, we deal with cash shop trickery, the ups and downs of relaunching an MMO, and plenty of mailbag topics sent in by listeners!

Massively Speaking Episode 243 Super Adventure MJ
MJ returns from her grand GDC adventure, and boy does she have stories to tell! Most of those stories will be to her therapist who will help her overcome the trauma of five days of non-stop interviews, but some of those tales will be related in this podcast. Also, you won't hear her sing the baby monkey song, but she totally did before we started recording and it was awesome. You had to be there.

It's one of the best perks of the job that we can sit back and talk about (a) superheroes, (b) Indiana Jones, (c) VeggieTales, (d) editor-endorsed kidnapping, (e) NES-era games, and (f) deep philosophical topics best reserved for college freshman jaw sessions. And then you get to listen to all of it! How special!

Massively Speaking Episode 240
With five kajillion MMOs on the market, Bree and Justin struggle to remember just what's what, some weeks. That may seem like scrub behavior, but they ain't no scrubs; they're professional goof-offs with a master's degree in goofery from Goof State University. It's an exciting podcast full of patches, Kickstarters, compensation, and sandboxy talk.

Sunrise, sunset. Some games reach new heights and some crash to the ground. Some questions go unanswered while some developers never stop talking. Some game futures are uncertain while some look more promising by the day. It's another week of MMO news, and some of it is more of the same and some of it is genuinely surprising.

While dueling previews of two exciting upcoming MMOs is an event in and of itself, it's no match for the sheer thrill of listening to Bree and Justin break out the banjos for a no-holds-barred hoedown. Unfortunately, as both co-hosts have yet to learn the banjo, you're only going to get the former today. Try to contain your disappointment.
