Massively OP Podcast Episode 76: The fall of Firefall
It’s never easy to watch the slow-motion downfall of an online game, especially when you consider all of the players and studio employees that it affects. This week on the show, Bree and Justin sort through the Red 5 mess and speculate about a Firefall that could have been.
