MMO Week in Review: The MMOs and MOBAs of PAX Prime (so far)


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.

Massively's Justin Olivetti, Patrick Mackey, and Jasmine Hruschak are heroes, folks. They've braved the dangers of con-flu, the lines of rabid fans, and the annoyances of blazingly short demos, all to bring you, the reader, a glimpse of what PAX Prime is all about. It turns out it's mostly about running to appointments, which sort of tarnishes the glamour. But in between all the running, there's WildStar, Guild Wars 2, EverQuest Next, and The Crew. We think you'll agree their sacrifice is worth it, especially since they were the ones making it.

Read on for the complete roundup of Massively's PAX coverage (so far), plus the highlights from the Final Fantasy XIV relaunch and the rest of this week's top stories.
