MMO Week in Review: Then man your ships, and may the Force be with you

At the end of every week, we round up the best and most popular news stories, exclusive features, and insightful columns published on Massively and then present them all in one convenient place. If you missed a big MMO or WoW Insider story last week, you've come to the right post.

Star Wars: The Old Republic celebrates two big events this month: its second anniversary and the launch of its latest expansion/update/patch/thing, Galactic Starfighter, for subbing players. The new content's highlights include new off-rails ship-to-ship content for PvP players. Should you shell out to play it now or wait until it's freely available next year? Our SWTOR columnist says it's easily worth the cost of a one-month sub right now.

Read on for a look at the rest of this week's top MMO stories.
