Week in Review: Convention overload


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, Massively suffered a severe affliction... con-fever! Four brave adventurers took on the New York Comic Con in the Northeast and the Game Developer's Conference in Austin, Texas, filling our pages with stories of their wild exploits. We got scoops on DC Universe Online (twice!), Final Fantasy XIV, City of Heroes, World of Tanks, All Points Bulletin, Ultima Online, Gods and Heroes, Iris Online and Allods, UTV's new games including Faxion Online, and CCP's blockbuster trio of EVE, Dust, and World of Darkness. Then we dipped into the meta, offering interviews with personalities like Richard Bartle and Cinco Barnes; overviews of topics like MMO longevity, voice integration, browser games, and freemium games; and summations of the more interesting developer panels. Even our podcasters and commenters got in on the action!

While we recover, take a peek past the break for a roundup of this week's other top stories!

And from our sister site, WoW Insider...
