Guild Wars 2
Guild Wars 2's First Holiday Event
October 16, 2012
Jon and I have been playing Guild Wars 2 for quite awhile. He’s a Human Ranger, while I’m an Asuran Elementalist. We are both enjoying the game (especially the level scaling so that we can party together successfully, even when we are a few levels apart) and looking forward to its recently announced first major event. And what might that first major event be? Why, Halloween, of course!
Guild Wars 2 is out, and it is good
August 30, 2012
This last week has been slightly problematic. Not only did we see the launch of Guild Wars 2, Planetside 2 hit beta and Counter Strike: Global Offensive dropped. It’s been a very busy week indeed. I haven’t spent much time in CS:GO and PS2 is still under NDA, so I wanted to spend a few minutes recounting the simple joys of Guild Wars 2.
A (p)review of the Guild Wars 2 beta
June 14, 2012
Guild Wars 2 had an open beta this past weekend and I received an invite since I had pre-ordered the game (back in August of 2009, for the record). It was very clearly labeled as an open Beta, “Feel free to talk about it with your friends,” noted the load screen. Sure, it’s just NCSoft trying to drum up more interest, but I’ll help them out by giving you a few thoughts on the game I saw along with what I found out about their Free To Play (F2P) system.
Is the era of $60 PC video games coming to an end?
April 3, 2012
Since I built my gaming PC, I’ve gotten more serious about following the details of recently released and soon-to-be-released games. Some of the games I’m following include Planetside 2, MechWarrior Online, Guild Wars 2, World of Warplanes and Warface. If you look closely at all these games, you will see that they’ve got one thing in common. That “thing”, that trend has lead me to believe that we might be seeing an end of the $60 PC video game. What is the trend of which I speak/type/write? All of these games will be free to play.
