Massively OP Podcast: Episode 7

The Massively OP Podcast crew learned many lessons from the MMO industry this week. We learned that players will get upset if you offer dolphins to some but not to all. We learned that VR is still a thing. We learned that the end of one MMO might mean the beginning of another. And we learned that sharing really is caring!

We also have a very special giveaway for podcast listeners, so tune in or read onward!

The giveaway!


As part of this week’s promotion, we’re giving away three cool gaming toys from our sponsor Newegg and its Rosewill store. Today’s prize is aimed at our podcast listeners and is a Rosewill Apollo – RK-9100xR – Mechanical Keyboard with Red Backlight. It’s an ergonomic keyboard with 50 macro keys, red backlighting, mechanical key switches, two USB 2.0 hubs, built-in headphone/microphone pass-through jacks, a detachable wrist rest, and extra gaming keys. Here’s a pic:

For this giveaway, we’ll be using Rafflecopter to count the entries for us. We reserve the right to change that up for future giveaways! You can earn entries in the giveaway by completing different steps in Rafflecopter; the question field is mandatory, but following us on Twitter and tweeting about this giveaway are optional and result in more entries. Rafflecopter uses javascript, so you’ll need to enable it to see the entry widget below:

One winner selected at random from the total of entries submitted to Rafflecopter will be contacted via email by Massively Overpowered to receive this keyboard from Newegg. Entrants are subject to our official contest and giveaway rules and will be required to submit an affidavit of eligibility as well as a shipping address (obviously!). This particular contest is open only to residents of the 50 US states and Canada (excepting Quebec) because international law is mean.

Entries will be accepted from the moment this post goes live until the giveaway’s end on Sunday, March 29, at 12:00 a.m. EDT (midnight Saturday night). We posted another giveaway for our readers yesterday; stream fans can enter a third giveaway on Wednesday’s stream. Yay, three prizes! Good luck!

Other than the clicky clacky this keyboard makes when it is 4am, this keyboard is pretty nice so far :)

CrowingOne That song might be one of the most annoying things to ever have happened to people with my name :P On Steam I just go by “Stacy” and someone makes that reference in 1/3rd of my games. As far as things go on the internet though, that is pretty minor :)

Liandreth Yup, I resinstalled, redeemed the dolphin, uninstalled again. I figure someday I might come back to it, but seems like it’s all SSDD in that game for now, not enough to draw me back.

breetoplay Muspel omedon666 I understand hat he’s saying. My point is that the game that he wants is pretty clearly at odds with the game that THEY want to make.

It’s debatable whether or not they’re making the right decision, but their reasons for doing the things that they’re doing are pretty clear and solve what would otherwise be very real problems.

Like I said, there’s a point when you’re looking at a game where you have to realize whether or not the game is aimed at you or not, and it’s pretty clear that SCL is not supposed to cater to those that want a truly free-form group RP experience. It’s going to be a lot more heavily structured than typical D&D.
