Waiting for the next BWE…

I'm definitely looking forward to the next Beta Weekend Event. And in order to get into the right mood already, I've uploaded a few more screenshots. Sadly, most of the 600 I have are from Lion's Arch. So the next time, I'm going to explore other places. Oh, and in case you haven't pre-purchased yet … Continue reading Waiting for the next BWE…

NBI: Time to say goodbye

It's the last day of May which means that the Newbie Blogger Initiative will be over on midnight. It's been a very interesting month and I got to read what other bloggers had to share. While I have been around for a long time (more than one year with Nerdy Bookahs and a very long … Continue reading NBI: Time to say goodbye

Criticizing Guild Wars 2

DISCLAIMER: If you want to criticize my post, feel free to do so (constructively, of course). However, if you want to do so, please READ it. Especially point 4 and its subject line: I complain about their marketing strategy. I do NOT complain about the skimpy armor. I even say so in the text. Read … Continue reading Criticizing Guild Wars 2

First Impressions: Torchlight 2

It's been a few days now since I've been able to play Torchlight 2 during their beta stress test event. It was also the first time I ever got to play the game (even though I've pre-purchased it in the meantime). And now I'll share with you my impressions about the game! I haven't actually … Continue reading First Impressions: Torchlight 2

Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (May 25, 2012)

Welcome to today’s Bookahneer’s Geekwatch! The place about miscellaneous interesting news related to gaming (will most likely include at least one piece about Guild Wars 2 ^^). We've heard sad news yesterday: 38 studios layed off all their employees yesterday (including all from Big Huge Games). What I found fascinating and encouraging was how fast … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (May 25, 2012)

Playing the embermage in Torchlight 2

Since I haven't had enough time yet and the beta test is still ongoing, I haven't been able to write my First Impressions piece on Torchlight 2 (the fact that I'm still playing it should tell you something, though ^^). So instead, I'll leave you with a video of me playing the embermage on normal … Continue reading Playing the embermage in Torchlight 2

Guild Wars 2: Stress Test Fun in WvW

On May 14, ArenaNet had a second stress test for Guild Wars 2. After being in the loading screen, stuck at 95%, for about 10 - 15 minutes, I got into the game and didn't have any problems at all anymore. Weird. ;) But maybe Monday evening wasn't the perfect time for a stress test … Continue reading Guild Wars 2: Stress Test Fun in WvW

NBI: Why haven’t you started your blog yet?

It's now May 13 and the Newbie Blogger Initiative has been around for 13 days already. Maybe you haven't heard about this initiative before. Syp from BioBreak started the Newbie Blogger Initiative trying to encourage potential new bloggers to start blogging now. He invited those who have been blogging for a bit longer already to … Continue reading NBI: Why haven’t you started your blog yet?

This is another crosspost from Talk Tyria. If you want to add a comment, please add it there. Thank you. :) The sylvari, together with the asura, are the races we haven't yet gotten to play either in the closed beta or during the first beta weekend event.
