Do you live for previews the way that we do? They're always so exciting, like getting to peek in a present before you open it. We've got plenty of previews to cover for this episode of Massively Speaking, but we won't let it stop us from our solemn duty to be silly and recite risque limericks. H...

Why you sit? Why you sit when there is so much to be done? Every minute you spend sitting, a thousand NPCs die a gruesome death that could have been prevented by your immortal battle prowess! But you sit. You sit and you admire daffodils as you ignore the noise of innocents in peril. Hope that's on...

Bree's the red Power Ranger. Justin's the what-does-the-fox-say fox. Together, they are way too old to trick or treat, but they're doing it anyway. Afterward, they're going to eat some candy, get a really good sugar high going, and record a podcast IN ALL CAPS. Wanna listen? Have a comment for t...

Humans like patterns. We like categories. We like pairing things up, making flow charts, and organizing the crap out of the universe. So don't blame us for basing an entire podcast around paired-up news stories. We're only human, after all. Have a comment for the podcasters? Shoot an email to po...

Space: The final frontier. Except for double-space, that place is off its rocker, yo! And then there's smurf-space, but that's like normal space only more blue. In this interstellar episode of Massively Speaking, Bree returns from her successful attempt to strongarm a certain studio into finally ma...

Astute listeners might notice that there's a 43-minute gap in the middle of today's episode. That's because MJ, having stayed up a record 98 hours, decided that we were all pod people and the only solution was to gas the studio. Fortunately, she used Lysol, so we merely had to evacuate while everyt...

How will Justin deal with the news that the game that got him into MMO blogging and podcasting is soon to be no more? Here's a quick preview: epic wailing and gnashing of teeth. Have you ever heard teeth-gnashing on air? It's pretty gruesome. Catch that and a whole lot more on this emotionally char...

Change. Change never changes. Except when it does and everyone freaks the heck out because why should there be change in our ever-evolving virtual worlds? On the podcast this week, Bree and Justin attempt to make sense of the chaos that is a new warchief, a "free" expansion, a shift in content deli...

The PAX Prime crew is home from another successful convention, and Justin has plenty of tales to tell Bree. Not that she's listening, of course. She's got mines to craft, and words just get in the way. Have a comment for the podcasters? Shoot an email to podcast@massively.com. We may just read y...

One of the little-known facts about Massively's staff is that we routinely carjack, helicopterjack, and tankjack our way to work every morning. It's become this competition to one-up each other, which is why Brendan ended up driving the Wienermobile into the parking lot last week. It's also why we'...

Spreadsheets, seesaws, and songs -- it's going to be a weird, weird show today, folks. Just giving you a heads up about it. Perhaps you should go do something exceedingly normal and boring before giving this a listen so as to counterbalance it. And as always, make sure to take a drink and shout, "M...

We're back after a week off only to find that the news has piled up on our broadcast desk like nobody's business! So naturally we talk about Ewoks for an hour. This is mostly because Larry is on the show today and he's got the little furballs on the mind. Have a comment for the podcasters? Shoot...

It's been a busy week with medium- and small-sized news running rampant through Massively's thoroughfares. It's also been a weird week full of redundancies, such as a game that's launched getting a launch and another game that had a title getting the exact same title. Face it: MMOs bring out the we...
