Joystiq: Massively Speaking

On November 2nd, 2007, Massively.com began. "This is Massively," Mike Schramm wrote, "and welcome to it." Today, on February 3rd, 2015, Massively.com ends. For the last seven years, three months, and two days, we've sought to be not a mirror but a lens through which to view the vibrant MMO industry. We conveyed news, opinions, streams, videos, comments, jokes, snark, and yes, even mourning for the far too many MMO sunsets we've all endured. Now the sun sets on us too.

Massively Speaking Episode 120 marks the return of Rubi as she joins Shawn to discuss this distinctly slow news week. But there's still plenty to talk about! Topics include Aion's iPhone app, the rumored Elder Scrolls MMO, FFXIV's extended free period (and bad launch), the new Guild Wars all-hero party addition and.... Minecraft. Yes, we just had to talk about it. Also, Shawn found his first castle since the recording. And bought Fallout: New Vegas, as he said he wouldn't. Sigh.
