On this week’s show, Bree and Justin tackle pesky design issues that negatively impact MMOs — you know, like oversized NPC butts and the entire female gender. The podcast duo also preps for World of Warcraft’s Patch 8.3, touches base with Lost Ark, and checks in with Crowfall’s finances.

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.

Regarding the SWTOR, how to break the cycle. Just stop going back to the game at all? If you are not happy with the direction they are taking the game… tell the dev’s that by not subbing? By doing what you are doing and going back every patch cycle and paying for a sub, you are in essence telling the dev’s you like/enjoy the direction they are taking things.

So now WoW can do a whole expansion in the afterlife, but I could not get one in the Emerald Dream? I see how it is.

Girls don’t ruin MMO’s. But anyone is capable of drama with all of its consequences.

Try not to say something sexist, try not to say something sexist, er, girls make MMO’s look prettier? Dammit I tried!

Well they do anyway.

There has never been a gamer in the history of video games who stopped playing a game because they were looking at too many butts. Ever.

Well I can’t argue that point, but I can definitely confirm people have quit games from looking at too many dongs.

I played a druid tank in WoW for a few years. 40% of my screen was bear butt. If that didn’t make me stop playing I don’t know what wou…oh yeah. Cataclysm. :P
