MMO Week in Review: Not all heroes (in Guild Wars 2) wear capes

But perhaps they should?

There are about nine million more pressing questions about why you're this way, of course.

Guild Wars 2 stole the show this week by dropping a mostly welcome update with new capes, a dynamic HUD, and quality-of-life goodies for multiple classes, especially Engineers and Elementalists. But we also saw Gamigo’s latest attempt at ArcheAge Unchained’s ArchePass (it’s disabled again, though, now), the release of Legends of Aria’s free-to-play New Dawn update, the settlement of Riot’s sexual discrimination lawsuit, and Star Citizen’s latest pixelship sale, which just so happens to be an epic spacemall.

Read on to catch up with the very best of this week’s MMO news and opinions today as every Sunday in Massively Overpowered’s Week in Review!

Not all heroes wear capes, just the ones that can buy gems, or have more than a couple active Guild members on to do Guild Missions in order to get the currency to buy the Guild cape.

With all due respect, if you can’t afford the $10 that it takes to get a cape, then you should be spending your time improving your life and financial situation instead of playing video games.

With all due respect, one could not have ways to justify spending $10 on a freaking digital cape.

So I logged in to check the capes and not only are they 2005 cape-physics but they also hide/clip through your weapon too. What an immense disappointment.

I would even argue that Rift has better capes.

But I wanted my greatsword to sit over the top of my cape, not underneath it/gone.
