Massively OP Podcast Episode 179: MMO parenting fails

    
11

On this week’s show, Bree and Justin celebrate MMORPG communities with how fantastic and passionate they can be (when they’re not complaining, that is!) and how disturbing children can be (when they’re not cuddling with you, that is!). There’s a lot of praise in this episode for the redemption of No Man’s Sky, better subscription values, and plenty of MMO updates.

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.

The sad anomaly started showing up with season 3. Lore strongly hinted that the exploded bloodstone and excess magic in Bloodstone Fen would make people a little crazy. After playing that part of the story, players will scream for no particular reason and see the anomaly. (At the time, there was also a current event involving rifts you could manipulate with a device and jump through too. When rift-jumping, you could actually *become* an anomaly and leave your body behind, turning aggressive to other players. It was weird.)

Anyway, if you want to stop seeing the anomaly, there is a brief quest chain. Look up “Burden of Choice” in your Hero panel achievements. It’s under Side Stories/Anomalous Occurrences. No one knows which choice is “best” at this point. Having done both on separate accounts, I know that either way, you cease to see the anomaly.

You talked about my blog on the podcast! Egads! I knew I shouldn’t comment until I’m finished listening.

What I want to know is when will my kids be old enough to watch me play video games? My 2-year-old wants to bang on the keyboard.

I’m so tempted to send Justin my spare joystick just so he can play Elite: Dangerous properly.

I said it before and I’ll say it again, any One commenting on this site is either passionate about MMORPGS like I am or nostalgia wash ups like Napoleon Dynamite’s Uncle that bitterly makes VHS tapes show casing his Quarter Back skills. I’m glad you found something to still be passionate about, even if it is an emulator there are still many people playing it.

If how ever you find your self callously covering the genre then you have to ask your self if you’ve become IOI in Ready Player One.

That’s not an attack by the way, how ever it seems lately when ever I try to challenge some one in a social setting they consider that to be the case; back in the old days people called it healthy debating (I am rough around the edges unfortunately like our current President we’re both New Yorkers so we come across like jerks to some people).

About blogging, i started a weblog about a year ago, the plan is to write for myself, i didn’t expect any visitors, but some people found me and started commenting on my posts, i went to their blogs to read and comment and now i feel i’m part of this community.

I was lucky that kind passionate people found me, but that will not happen in the first place if i didn’t start my weblog, so just start and write, search for other weblogs and follow them.

I’ll echo Justin’s sentiments that it’s nice to hear you excited about playing an MMO to that degree again Bree. And it reminds me once more how nice it is to see members of the site able to talk about playing emulated MMOs unlike how your hands were tied during Massively of Old.

Thanks for the podcast as always!

It is hard to feel an ounce of guilt when Smed showed up on our last SWG Emu stream and said how glad he was to see it still kicking. :D If Disney wants it gone, Disney will disappear it, and in the meantime, I’ma game on!

Asheron’s Call had the TARDIS, not really all that creepy, but fun.
