Massively OP Podcast: Episode 17

    
18

When one game falls, another one rises… or is it the other way around? Today on the podcast, Justin and Bree talk about the unfortunate demise of a superhero MOBA and what that means for the “genre.” Happily, there’s a lot of positive news to cover as well that may indicate that 2015 is on the rise even so!

Join us on the podcast as we talk about what we’ve been playing in MMOs, the top news stories from the past week, and topics that listeners have submitted!

Do you consider Magicka:Wizard Wars a MOBA?  It also has a built in (although comparatively small) audience.

Justin, Blizzard tweets out the average and oldest ticket queue times at @BlizzardCS.  As far as in-game stats, ala rpg’s, you can pull up a huge amount of detail in WoW, though that may be not the type of info you’d look for since you didn’t specify what would be interesting to you.

Thanks for resurrecting that question, Bree. I had forgot all about it. Love the backstory idea, that sounds pretty epic if more games can implement that in. GW2 does a pretty good job. Would like something with more options, though.
I suppose I don’t want to take the rags to riches away, but I would like to have these starting packages added into games. Something for gamers to have better options for your character to start from that isn’t level 1 no-named adventurer with no armor and a terrible weapon. I remember that mod for Oblivion, and there’s one for Morrowind and Skyrim too.

The thing that I don’t get about Daybreak is their announcement on shifting Landmark development to EQN is that Landmark was a game that was supposed to assist them in developing EQN to begin with.  I don’t understand why they were so devoted to it?  They should have been developing it from the start.
