Guild Wars 2 and its lack of PvP servers

Some time ago, a friend asked us about "open world PvP". When we told him that there won't be any PvP servers like you have them in World of Warcraft or Star Wars: The Old Republic, he was upset.

Educate the gaming masses!

For a few years, I had been a forum moderator for a forum with a few hundred members (at peak times... not online at the same time, though!). We had members from all over the world, aged 13 to 50-something. We allowed all sorts of discussions to happen on the forum. We did have heated … Continue reading Educate the gaming masses!

Something that annoyed us greatly in the Eligium beta was that we couldn't choose the look of … Continue reading Blog Carnival: On the edge of diversity

Bookahneer’s 1st anniversary!

So, it's technically not bookahneer's first anniversary himself. Vekk is a lot older and "the bookahneer" was introduced a lot later. But we just realised that we started blogging with Nerdy Bookahs exactly one year ago! *throws confetti* And now, look at my first posting. Ok ok, maybe the second one as that actually has … Continue reading Bookahneer’s 1st anniversary!

Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (March 2, 2012 – Asura Edition)

Just one little thing today: Al'Ellisande from Wartower did a lore interview with Jeff Grubb about the Asura. Go here to listen to it. That's 44 minutes of Asura-Goodness! :) We're only at 08:00 but it's just as it always is when ArenaNet's lore writers talk about the story: Fascinating and very interesting. We always … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (March 2, 2012 – Asura Edition)
