Bookahneer’s Geekwatch: First Beta Weekend Event Reports

I've seen countless people write about their experiences and share screenshots (not always in public places, so I'm not going to be able to link to all of them). If I start linking to them now, how many will be disappointed that I forgot them? Oh well, I'll risk this and add that if you … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch: First Beta Weekend Event Reports

Lion’s Arch – Screenshot gallery

Update May 2014: I made a new post where you can also find pictures of Lion's Arch with its various holiday decorations. Update April 2014: Lion's Arch has seen quite some changes. I did another screenshot gallery of "old Lion's Arch" before Scarlet's attacks. You can find it here. During the attacks, I took a … Continue reading Lion’s Arch – Screenshot gallery

Lion’s Arch

We're having connection and performance issues in the beta at the moment... too bad. But that plus me being really tired, I decided to take Paerocharr (guess her race!) for a stroll through Lion's Arch. Yes, this will be a game where my "print" button will have to suffer. Poor thing. Don't expect any long … Continue reading Lion’s Arch

Will ArenaNet kill international guilds with Guild Wars 2?

That's a question that came up today on Twitter. As you all probably know, Twitter isn't the best place to talk about or muse such things because of its limited amount of letters that can be sent with each tweet. Especially if tweets go out to several people at the same time (who were all … Continue reading Will ArenaNet kill international guilds with Guild Wars 2?

Diablo 3 beta – or: Why I preordered Torchlight 2 instead

Let me start by saying that I truly enjoyed what I've seen about Diablo 3 per se. Neither bookahnerk nor I have found any bugs so far which just seems to be typical for Blizzard. Their betas are usually rather polished already (at least, from what I've heard and seen so far). One flaw, however, … Continue reading Diablo 3 beta – or: Why I preordered Torchlight 2 instead

Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (April 18, 2012)

Choosing between the mesmer and the warrior: Which one wins?

Update: The following post is from before the game's launch. I wrote about this topic again after having played both professions for a bit longer. You can find the post here. In case you're new to my blog: I've been to the EUFanDay in Brighton where we got to play Guild Wars 2. After our … Continue reading Choosing between the mesmer and the warrior: Which one wins?

Being at the EUFanDay – or: Musings about ArenaNet’s game philosophy

As you, my dear readers, may have noticed already, I was invited to the EUFanday in Brighton. Yeah, okay, there's no way you can have missed that. ;) When we got this invitation, we were... flattered. The next question, however, was: Who will go? Bookahnerk or me? Once that was settled (it was an ugly … Continue reading Being at the EUFanDay – or: Musings about ArenaNet’s game philosophy

My gameplay experience at the EUFanDay

It turns out, we're actually allowed to write about our game experience now! Three cheers to ArenaNet for allowing us to share our experiences with you! And there's no need for them to worry either because except for two tiny things, I enjoyed myself immensely in the game and all in all, I can't wait … Continue reading My gameplay experience at the EUFanDay

EuFanDay: The interview

Cross-posted from Talk Tyria. As always, please go there if you want to comment on the article.

I was the one representing our blog … Continue reading EuFanDay: The interview
