At the end of every week, we round up the best and most popular news stories, exclusive features, and insightful columns published on the site and then present them all in one convenient place. Miss a big story last week? Curious about what's going on next door at our sister site, WoW Insider? Don't worry -- we've got you covered.

This week, far and away our biggest story -- stories! -- focused on Square-Enix's newest blockbuster, Final Fantasy XIV, which launched for pre-order players on Wednesday. To celebrate, we offered up our FFXIV guide for WoW players, a guide to crafting and harvesting in FFXIV, and first impressions of the game from Eliot Lefebvre and Beau Hindman. Of course, you fired back and told our Final Fantasy fanboys that they were crazy, which just goes to show how wild and varied the tastes of MMO players are. Some people juggle geese! Still undecided? Make up your mind with a peek into our livestream of the game, hosted by our own Seraphina Brennan.

Or join me after the break for a rundown of this week's other top stories!
And from our sister site, WoW Insider...
