The Massively Speaking podcast is booting back up after being shut down over the holiday season, only to emerge in one of the most notorious news wastelands of the year: early January. Still, there are a few important stories to talk about, such as one game soft launching and another suspiciously d...

iPhones aren't cheap -- that's always been one of the sticking points for anyone debating between a bargain-priced Android smartphone and one of Apple's handsets -- but they sure as heck don't cost anywhere near what these Price Is Right contestants seem to think. In a recent episode of the popula...

There are plenty of poorly conceived iPhone cases out there, but it's rare that you see a company really knock it out of the park with a bad design only to follow it up with an even worse one. Moschino, an Italian luxury firm that dreams up all manner of absurd fashion accessories, has really Ba...

The battle over whether iPhone or Android is better will never end, if only because Android users will never admit that they're absolutely wrong. Normally the conflict is merely verbal, but thanks to this entry from a video contest hosted by mobile game controller make MOGA this argument has gott...

As I've done for 2013 and 2014, I'm going to use the turn of the year as an excuse to look ahead at what MMO releases we may have to look forward to enjoying in the next 12 months. As always, it's a mixture of research, guesswork, and weeks of anguished ranking to come up with 10 titles that I thin...

Massively's 2014 awards series is over, but we like to go back and take a look at the reader polls and some of the big questions and neat comments that arose during the course of our rollout because many of our awards were contentious, as they are every year. It'd be no fun if they weren't, I suppo...

Nothing says Christmas like pulling adorable pranks on your loved ones. One intrepid YouTube user took the holiday season as a chance to convince his grandmother than she'd just been given a brand new iPhone. There's just one catch; Grandma isn't interested in one of these fancy new devices. Her...

As part of our end-of-the-year efforts, today's podcast will be devoted to going through ALL (or all we can handle) of the mail that's been piling up on Massively Speaking's doorstep. It's a full hour of nothing other than your topics and our opinions, brought to you in full technicolor sound! G...

Yeah, so you played - or are at least familiar with the premise of - The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and saw where this was going. The video is still smile-worthy! And hey, maybe you can make your own Majora music video when Majora's Mask 3D comes to 3DS in spring 2015. [Image: Nintendo]...

It wasn't until the advent of Bendgate that iOS users in mass started to question of how the iPhone interacts with tight pants. While normally this question is asked to take into consideration the damage that might be done to the phone, but what about your pants? That question has been answered by...

2014 was a heck of a year here at Massively. And for all of the ups and downs that we weathered, we like to think that we've emerged a little smarter, a little wiser, and a little ready for a less dramatic 2015. On today's episode, we invited to staff to come in talk about MMOs we've played, our aw...

The team here at Joystiq enjoys a good pun – though it's unclear sometimes if everyone else appreciates them quite as much as we do. Still, video games aren't beyond playing with words either and 2014 was a good year for particularly punny games. As we wind down 2014, Team Joystiq takes a ...

Really, CBS app? We understand the pride that comes with being "America's Most Watched Network," but one set of terms and conditions is plenty for most network applications that let you watch full episodes -- two at the most. Not for you! Four separate user agreements that nobody will bother to ...

Well, my chums, here we are at the tail-end of 2014, having achieved all of our goals and new year's resolutions. Even better, we've survived what's turned out to be one of the wildest, rockiest, and most exciting years of MMO news in recent memory. This was the year of high-profile game launche...

One of my favorite things to do every year is go back to the previous year's staff predictions. What did we think 2014 was going to look like in the MMO world back at the end of 2013? How wrong were we, and where did we hit eerily close to the mark? I won't include everything, just some of the more...

Way back when the iPhone 5s launched -- along with its 120fps slow-mo video capabilities -- it spawned a whole bunch of YouTube videos showing guys and gals slapping each other just to watch it back in slow motion. Now the iPhone 6 and its even-slower-slow-mo feature is giving slap-happy friends a...

On this week's show, the podcasters will need to lower their voice or else risk attracting the attention of undesirable demons, server outages, and console delays. If you play this episode backwards, you will hear hidden messages that will unravel your mind and show you the truth of what lies beyon...
