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!

Surprised you haven’t covered the Minecraft HoloLens demo.  Easily the best part of E3 this year and has huge ramifications for gaming in general. Would love to see it used for tactical games like Age of Empires and MOBAs.
