Cover more City of Heroes

Or start a separate podcast. I enjoy hearing you talk about all facets of CoX! Keep up the good work

DrSotirios ,

pretty good with some minor issues

A good podcast on MMO RPG. I enjoy the discussion between the two hosts and they are very informative. I also enjoy the chill and family/friendly environment. I removed one star for two reasons: the audio sometimes lacks (either the guests mic is bad and you hear their breathing for an hour or one of the hosts is exercising and breath deeply on the mic), the other reason is the lack of news on ff14 since none of them play it and so they skip it most of the time while we get news on fallout ;)

Great Content, Tarnished

Years after the old guard of Massively reorganized to create Massively Overpowered, the quality of their most conveniently consumable product continues to suffer. The better than average reporting, the depth of the coverage, and the unbelievably good insight into the workings of the industry, gameplay, and gaming philosophy of MMORPGs are just some of the exceptional aspects of this production that are consistently held back by audio quality. I assume most listeners understand that nothing is owed to them by the creators of a free podcast, but it is disappointing that in a medium where decent audio production has been made simple, the listenability of this great podcast is made arduous.
