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

Great Content, Tarnished

Years after the old guard of Massively reorganized to create Massively Overpowered, the quality of their most easily 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 the audio. 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.
