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!

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.
