At MMOBomb, we are constantly evaluating what we cover, how we cover it, and (most importantly) what you, our fans, want to see. You’ve already seen a few of the changes we’ve made here over the past few months. From increased site performance to a complete redesign of the web site and beyond, we aim to keep improving the quality of MMOBomb.

As you’ll see over the next few months, we have even more in store for you! New Shows, new ideas, and even coverage of new platforms will all be coming to the site. With that growth in mind, we wanted to take a minute to announce another exciting change!

Mike “Magicman” Byrne will be returning to MMOBomb. For those of you that are long time MMOBombers, you probably remember Magicman as our previous Editor-in-Chief and you certainly remember when he started the Free to Play Cast on this site over 2 years ago. We’re excited to have him back and we know he is looking forward to jumping back into making fun, informative, and (most importantly) interactive content for the site.

Stay tuned for more announcements and videos as Magicman jumps back into the saddle soon!


  1. Welcome back magic, you better be bringing the whole cast back with you! That’s part of the bomb community I missed a ton, Free to Play Cast. Curious to see what else is going to be added as well, I doubt this major restructure of the site is just to make it look sleek – Expecting to see some major content additions.

  2. Woot! \o/

    Your reviews and F2P Casts are what kept me comin back to this site. Glad to see your long awaited return.

    I hope Spunkify sticks around to write articles and such. I dig those.

  3. This is the best news i have read in a long time… like EVER!
    We have missed you. Happy to see you return. Welcome back Magicman!!!

  4. I am really happy to see you back magicman. You always made watching the f2p cast exciting the way you offer unique insight really helps us understand the game industry. I always like it when you say what a company dose wrong and you go into detail. You really are on our side as gamers. In some episodes I can’t even stop laughing. I really look forward to watching the next f2p that has you as host.

  5. Daaayyyyuuummmm !

    I’ve been following magicmann since the first ever Free2Play cast, his (incredibly handy) show where he gave us tips on becoming active gamers on the internet (Showing us what equipment he used to record the podcasts etc.) and of course his game first looks !

    Just the other day I thinking on those times and then to see this post … Excited !

    MMOBomb is getting bigger and better everyday !

    Can we look forward to a magicmann livestream? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Please tell me you’ll be part of free to play cast again and possibly some old friend i still remeber the story where one of them broke their laptop screen in half because he couldnt log into SWOTOR

  6. Awwwwww yeah the wizard is back, don’t get me wrong I love the rest of the MMOBomb team as well bu MM has that charm that goes a long way. ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. MOUNTED! came to this site originaly for a free AION pet give away and haven’t missed a free to play cast since so thrilled to hear Magicman comin home =)
