The MMO industry moves along at the speed of information, and sometimes we’re deluged with so much news here at Massively Overpowered that some of it gets backlogged. That’s why there’s The MOP Up: a weekly compilation of smaller MMO stories and videos that you won’t want to miss. Seen any good MMO news? Hit us up through our tips line!

This week we’ll see how Star Trek Online players fought bullying, check in with Dark Age of Camelot’s dev team, take a look at Skyforge’s Necromancer, see what anime a certain MMO Korean studio is cooking up, and more!

I’m  happy to see more Nexon anime, the Blade and Soul anime was good.

I don’t think it’s weird at all, no more than using the same word in English to describe either medium despite their distinct differences (cartoon).

And that’s not even easy to say.Anime is short for animation, which is exactly what it is: animated pictures.   Yes it does get confused with hentai a lot because ignorant folks just see all Japanese animations as such.   That was off topic.  Anyways.  Manga vs anime is that each is distinct own words, where as the Korean version is taking and just saying “animated comic book” (found the rough translation).  That is kind of weird to call it that.

So if Korean manga is manhwa, what is Korean anime then? o,O

For the Path of Exile blurb:  each level of support pack offers a different gargoyle pet; and all the ones before it.  The stone gargoyle is the first pack priced at $50.

Ar:priel looks like a generic academy anime with furries tossed in.  That one is a pass (especially when 30 minute episodes are normally rather short to get a good story going and this show wants to do 12 minute ones). 

Closers, on the other hand, as very similar art style to K (even the girl with the cat collar is spot on, for example).  That one looks like a much more enjoyable show to watch.  But yet again at only 12 minutes each, a full season of 12 shows comes up to equal six 30-minute shows.  Far too short. 

Elsword has almost nothing shown except for some fantasy city. Without knowing the game (it IS a Nexon product, after all), I can’t really judge the show.  Maybe good, maybe bad, maybe maybe. 

And hooray for Cryptic -and STO players- for supporting such a charity to help combat bullying. Just hope they don’t take too much backlash from those who throw labels of “SJWs” on them for it.
