Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (June 30, 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 ^^). The infamous June 28 came and went, but it finally brought us a release date. Do I need to even repeat it? I'm just going to link to … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (June 30, 2012)

First Impressions: The Secret World

I have tried The Secret World during the last two beta weekend events. This post is not a review. It is about my first impressions of the game and thus, much too incomplete for a review. But just fine as a "first impressions" piece. :) For once, I had not read up on every available … Continue reading First Impressions: The Secret World

We present the winners (Torchlight Giveaway)

I've only prepared half of this post (sans the winners, of course) before the Guild Wars 2 stress test begins. I just like drawing the winners as close to the deadline for entering the giveaway as possible because I always assume that people are watching our blog like a hawk when we have a giveaway... … Continue reading We present the winners (Torchlight Giveaway)

Guild Wars 2: Hoelbrak Screenshot Gallery

With Hoelbrak, the series of screenshot galleries is finished... for now. As soon as they let us into Rata Sum or The Grove, me and my print-hitting finger will be back! ;) Unfortunately, Hoelbrak was also the most boring one for me to go through. As the wiki entry says, Hoelbrak is basically a hunting … Continue reading Guild Wars 2: Hoelbrak Screenshot Gallery

GW2: 84 miniatures and their idle animations

Bookahnerk spent the second BWE trying to get as many miniatures as possible. Having a global* trading post helped a lot here. He was able to get almost all of those that were available except for Mini Ragar Shardhammer, Mini Skam Darkhoof and Mini Zojja (*sob* I would have loved to see her!). Out of … Continue reading GW2: 84 miniatures and their idle animations

Torchlight 1 + 2 Giveaway

The giveaway has ended. I'll disallow comments. Give me a bit to roll the winners. :) Some time ago, we bought the Torchlight 2 game on Steam. If you buy it there, you get Torchlight 1 for free as well. We've got one extra copy of both games now. I am not sure how Torchlight … Continue reading Torchlight 1 + 2 Giveaway

Guild Wars 2: Divinity’s Reach Screenshot Gallery

Today, I'm picture-guiding you through Divinity's Reach. After going through Lion's Arch during the first BWE, I realized that I had forgotten to look at the human capital. Still, when BWE2 started, I headed straight for the Black Citadel because I had found it much more interesting at first glance. Also, how exciting can it … Continue reading Guild Wars 2: Divinity’s Reach Screenshot Gallery

Day and Night Cycle in Guild Wars 2

It takes 2 hours for one day and night cycle to complete in Guild Wars 2. Very nice! I've always disliked the idea of having it in "real time" (I think World of Warcraft does it) because it takes so long to watch the sunset, which is my favourite time of the day in most … Continue reading Day and Night Cycle in Guild Wars 2

Guild Wars 2: Black Citadel in all its glory

The last time, I went sight-seeing in Lion's Arch. For this BWE, I chose Black Citadel because I haven't seen or heard that much about this place so far. For reference, read the wiki entry for Black Citadel. As you can see, there isn't too much information about Black Citadel. Most notable is that it … Continue reading Guild Wars 2: Black Citadel in all its glory

Guild Wars: The end of the Hall of Monuments

On Wednesday, I finally reached 30 out of 50 points in the Hall of Monuments. So for me, this part is finished and I don't think I'll ever take a look at it again. Don't get me wrong, I love the idea and that they gave us something as a reward in Guild Wars 2. … Continue reading Guild Wars: The end of the Hall of Monuments
