Support Massively OP on PatreonWere you too busy gaming this week to pay attention to MMO news? Get caught up every Sunday evening with Massively Overpowered’s Week in Review! Ug, I would be so happy if Gamescom and PAX West didn’t happen a week apart and PAX West and DragonCon didn’t overlap! Not only do we get an avalanche of news from incoming major games, but it can be a quiet period for other studios that don’t want their news buried. Such was not quite the case this week, however, as we got plenty of goodies on new games like Anthem and New World as well as from existing MMOs like Elder Scrolls Online and World of Warcraft. Guild Wars 2 even booted up a boba tea promo, and Star Citizen rolled out fresh drama. Stay tuned for in-depth coverage of PAX this week once Larry and MJ are back from PAX and DragonCon! Read on for the very best of this week’s MMO news and opinions. THIS WEEK’S TOP STORIES Star Citizen partially reverses CitizenCon … [Read more...] about MMO Week in Review: PAX West caps off a summer of gaming (September 2, 2018)

What’s up everyone! Today is Sunday, July 22nd and with that, we welcome the conclusion of another week, and the release of yet another “Weekly Byte of MMORPG News” article.

As this year’s GDC coverage is winding down, I am finally coming to the topic I saved for last: community. MMOs are more than just multiplayer. We attract the “alone together” people more than the “FPS hero” crowd in our comments section for a reason; MMOs are virtual worlds. They’re a digital space inhabited by other people.

Six years ago on this very day (December 1, 2008) I moved a free blog hosted on BlogSpot to a self-hosted WordPress blog, and that's how ShoutMeLoud was born.
