Massively OP’s guide to MMO podcasts

Podcasts are certainly splendid means of feeding one’s MMO interests and keeping in touch with the news and community. It’s always great to hear others speaking with passion and interest about the same games that you play, and often times hosts will discuss angles and strategies that you’ve never considered before.

Whether you listen to podcasts during a commute, while playing the very MMO the episode is covering, or while doing menial tasks, these shows can be a soothing balm to an otherwise stressful or annoying day.

If you’ve ever wondered what ‘casts are out there for MMOs you’re playing, then this is the guide for you! We’ve got a hopefully largely comprehensive guide to game-specific podcasts to fill up your MP3 player. Are we missing one for a certain MMO? Let us know in the comments and we’ll add it!

That black desert podcast is already dead from the looks of it. Have you seen any others? I've been looking, but no luck for me on it.

Limit Break Radio is definitely the top choice for 14, got that right, but it also was the top show of FFXI and probably the only one next to Pet Food Alpha. #LimitBreakRadio #SaltPrimal #SpankBank

Useful list! I'd also appreciate it if you add whether each podcast is US, EU or Oceanic. Or maybe if they're just not US based, because 99% of them probably are.

I may be slightly off subject here, but I think it can be useful to mention the ESO Live streams where the CMs from TESO come to talk with their community, every two weeks approximately. They give news about upcoming things and patches in the game, they answer questions from the community, they select some fanarts to show, they invite someone from the dev team everytime to talk about an upcoming update to the game.

Of course it's Zenimax's words and talkings, but they are really open and friendly, and I like to see the devs communicate like that with their community. Moreover, it's the first MMO I see doing that, and they have been doing that since the very beginning, since launch, when the game was still sub only.

Just go to TESO website and you'll find the link to the last ESO Live episode in one of the recent news.

Great.  Anyone know of a good podcast app for android?  I know there are many, just wondering if you had a favorite.

@Tethyss  I use Pocket Casts - its a purchase app, but I spent a lot of time listening to podcasts so it was worth it.  It's also worth mentioning that Google is rolling out (slowly) support for podcasts as part of the Play Music app.  I personally don't have it yet, but I've seen it hit the Google sphere.

@Serrenity @Tethyss Another +1 for Pocket Cast: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=au.com.shiftyjelly.pocketcasts

I've been using it for years now after trying other pod catchers, and it's changed the whole game.  They're always been great in not only keeping regular maintenance updates but being at the forefront of Android. (Google Now, Material Design, Watch+Auto integration)  On top of that, their app has access to most of the common podcast announcement feeds, So if there's any show you're looking for that appears on iTunes or Sticher, you'll be able to find and subscribe to it with a few button presses.  


Seriously, it's amazing.

Great list and article, thanks for that! I think i'll not run out of podcasts to listen to anymore ;)

Recently discovered Tales of Tamriel and like it very much. Nice to listen to with good amounts of news, opinion and observation (kind of what you do with the MOP podcast, only game-specific). I think they do their thing live on youtube (?) as well but i haven't looked into that yet.

@TalesofTamriel Well deserved! The time might actually work for me, so it could happen. For now, i'm looking forward to listen to the new episode.

Camelot Unchained, you missed Realms Unchained's bi-weekly Unchained Vodcast, which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLzZeSjbtMj2R-sSKjLKSvsg0vnxcC15FU



For GW2, I'd say you can safely remove Tales of Tyria from that list.  Bridger and his Team Legacy cronies abandoned GW2 about 6 months into the game (just before the culling patch that completely removed it from PvE and WvW). A month or two prior to HoT's release they started up again trying to ride the hype train to gain extra channel views.   As of December 2015, no new shows or anything is coming out of their camp.  Yet again they've abandoned the game.    And the tone of their show is that of ...well, it's not very enjoyable to listen to at all.  [In fact, you're better off listing their Tales of Citizens from the same channel under Star Citizen.  They've blasted off with that hype shuttle and the fuel gauge doesn't look like it's going empty any time soon.]

@Siphaed I started watching the Realms Unchained podcast with the MJ interview and I really like the fact that they focus on one subject for about 50 mins. I still like Opposition Podcast but I feel at times they're all over the place.
