Which one piece of advice would you give a Guild Wars 2 newbie?

For the last beta weekend event, we were lucky enough to receive a beta key that we gave to a friend. He had already been with us when we went to GamesCom last year and everything we have told him about the game has fascinated him. But he doesn't have much time for playing games … Continue reading Which one piece of advice would you give a Guild Wars 2 newbie?

The Glorious Rata Sum in Pictures

Guild Wars 2 really is coming. This is the last piece of my screenshot collection showing off the different races' cities - and Lion's Arch. Rata Sum was exactly like I had imagined it just with more vibrant colors and a whole lot more awesome than I would have thought. Enjoy the pictures! In case … Continue reading The Glorious Rata Sum in Pictures

GW2: Picture Impressions of The Grove

I have to admit that The Grove surprised me. I had imagined a huge greenish brown tree that has lots and lots of sylvari living on its leaves. While I was certain that it would be pretty (as I find Guild Wars 2's art style in general to be very pretty), I had also been … Continue reading GW2: Picture Impressions of The Grove

However, they were not playable in their respective starter … Continue reading Looking Forward to the Sylvari and Asura

GW2: Will it really lack endgame?

Update July 13, 2012: There's an interview on Twitch.tv with Eric Flannum and Colin Johanson where they're talking about endgame in Guild Wars 2. :) I have seen several people talk about whether Guild Wars 2 has an endgame and whether it needs one. Some articles/discussions are a bit older, others are newer. Let me … Continue reading GW2: Will it really lack endgame?

GW2: More screenshots

I'm late, I know. Real life and all that. You probably know how it is. ;) We had planned to write an in-depth posting about our Beta Weekend Event and Stress Test experience but eh, sometimes, there just isn't enough time. So, to keep it short (as I need to get up in a few … Continue reading GW2: More screenshots

When did you first hear about Guild Wars 2?

The things Nerdy Bookahs do on a Sunday evening (while watching the European football finale... go Spain!): We are trying to remember when we first heard about Guild Wars 2 and, more importantly, when we thought: "Wooooah, that's something we definitely want to play!" I know that Guild Wars has had a special place in … Continue reading When did you first hear about Guild Wars 2?
