Drixzen ,

Great podcast!

I love this show..I listen every week and find the content very informative and entertaining..they have great news coverage of the mmo industry. Bree (hope I spelled it right) and Justin are fantastic hosts! The humor and banter is great and there is a really good balance of information and fun in each show. Thanks Massively OP and keep it up! Btw I personally love when you guys talk about my favorite game EQ2 so thanks for giving it some mentions here and there too ;)…take care!

Bummer of a Podcast

I wish I could say I enjoyed this podcast, but I’d be lying. I gave it 7-8 episodes before saying enough is enough. The amount of wrong information and negative takes on games is exhausting. If it’s not Star Wars Galaxies, LOTRO, or City of Heroes…don’t expect these hosts to have anything positive to say. I can only imagine how much misinformation would be in any “articles” these folks would write. Hard Pass if you want quality MMO coverage.
