That’s why there’s The MOP Up: a weekly compilation of smaller MMO stories and videos that you won’t want to miss. See any good MMO news? Hit us up through our tips line!

This week we'll gorge on free games from the entire Tribes library, find out what Oort Online's new name is, get a first look at Lord of the Rings Online's latest update, and more!

The open world sandbox Oort Online has gotten a name change to Boundless. "It describes players’ boundless imaginations when creating, the boundless opportunities to visit new places and meet other players, the boundless ways you can exploit the in-game economy, and the boundless variety of creatures you’ll discover," the devs explained. You can check out the... interesting name announcement video below. [Thanks to Jose for the tip!]

LOTRO Players has a first impressions video up looking at Lord of the Rings Online's Minas Tirith.

Drakensang Online dug up its lead artist for a half-hour video interview to talk about creating the look of the game. Check it out:

Didn't DS once accuse MOP of being biased (possibly said because they don't cover HIS game)?
If so, there's an old saying that applies here:  Be careful what you wish for, you might just get it.

"We are on track for a late 2011 deployment, though depending on
schedules, I may hold it until Q1 2012 depending on how crowded Q4 2011
is."

Grav recently did a reborn update that cleaned up the game a lot and added a bunch of new features.  Its in the same vein as Rust and Ark.  I've sunk a lot of hours into it, pretty addictive.

Lotro got an amazing update, minas tirith is gorgeous and the new content is really fun.

BKone Absolutely not.  Civ is too good a brand to be tarnished by some chop shop Korean developer.  I hope it is a cash cow for Sid -n- Co that stays in the same cesspool that spawned its evil afterbirth.

I don't know if I really feel this way.  It was just fun to type out.

Nordavind that makes me feel a lot better about Google.

Psst. Niantic left Google some weeks back, so Ingress is no longer a Google game.
Anyway, the shop is live. Slowly activating on a few scanners at a time. So far they made wise choices regarding items available.

At first I was all liek, "Wow that is big of them a Line of Defense write up how nice."  Then I got to the second part.  I still think it is big of you.

For those who don't wanna goto the site the choicest quote:

"*sigh*
People, the mini and full scene maps have icons showing where everything is, your direction of travel etc. The in-game docs show you how to get around. It’s not rocket science."

Stupid fucking idiots who bought my game in pre-release it isn't rocket science dumbfucks.  I love this guy :)

I was surprised to see that line of defense wasn't the worst rated game on steam ( close though ) flatout 3 with a review " I'd rather tea bag a bear trap than play this game " Being one that kind of stood out....geez!

That's going to be pretty hard to beat but I'm sure he's up to the task.
