Were 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!

The new-old Lord of the Rings Online team at Standing Stone worked the gaming press corps this week, sprinkling reveals like candy at a Mardi Gras parade as they went.

Plus housing is due for updates in the very next patch.

Meanwhile, MOP’s Andrew Ross penned a detailed research piece on whether lockboxes and their associated business mode trappings legally constitute gambling.

Read on for the very best of this week’s MMO news and opinions.
