Massively OP Podcast Episode 36: Team Sparkles

Bree is the world’s biggest vampire and Star Trek fan! This and other dubious “facts” are what you’ll discover on this week’s show, as the podcast crew talks about CCP’s White Wolf sale, several major game updates, and something called “post-purchase rationalization.”

It’s the Massively OP Podcast, an action-packed hour of news, tales, opinions, and gamer emails! And remember, if you’d like to send in your own letter to the show, use the “Tips” button in the top-right corner of the site to do so.

Syppi Grifter The OP stands for Ornery Parakeets. That’s right! Massively OP has recently purchased Rovio and is prepping to enter the mobile space!

Actually Bree in a lot of the old text based online multi-player rpgs, there was “grouping”. The mechanic at least. If you closed your group they couldn’t join your group nor loot a creature killed etc. But I do agree with you that it isn’t required as mechanic and yeah socializing is for an mmo-rpg. ;)

Although it takes a while to reach one there are a few loading screens on the road to Minas Tirith. To reach Rohan you need to go through the Fords of Isen (1 screen to phase between pre- and post-battle state) and since Anórien isn’t in the game yet you have to go through the Paths of the Dead (2 more screens) and reach the White City from the south.

WoD not necessary because of Revival? That’s…. an odd thing to say. Revival may be some kind of dark setting — I’m not even sure — but it’s clearly not all about vampires, werewolves, hidden societies and so on.
I love the idea of a test though, sort of. I’ve always thought that a test to post on a game’s official forums should be mandatory. They should at least understand the game that they’re playing before they go complain about it.
